Our Back Porch
For those of you that know me, you know how much I love my porches (I know that sounds very 'TEXAN', but I really do love MY porches). I love to have that homy feel when sitting on the porch hanging with Hubby and friends while watching the kids play. In fact I set my porches before I set up anything else in the house. I'm sad to say that I did not take any before pictures of either the back or the front porch. But just to create a picture for your mind....when we moved in the grass was...well, none. What was there was brown. Housing blamed it on the drought, I beg to differ. I lived in Texas during the hottest summer on record and I still had green grass. Beat 80+ straight days of temps over 100 and I *might* excuse brown grass. Anyway after much negotiation housing put sod in for us. They didn't think we could keep it alive. HA! They must have forgotten what my yard looked like the last time I lived here. This is only the beginning. Next year I hope I remember to post pictures of what is happening in our back yard when I actually have time to plant things. For now, this is what I have done:

It looks wonderful! We're in a high rise apartment, and - while I've sort of enjoyed my break from lawn care - the thing I miss the most about home is my back deck!

Hi, I'm Trish, the writer, creator and photographer of this blog. I started this blog for 2 reasons, 1 - When I found out we were moving to Korea back in 2008 I was a little freaked out and started scouring the internet for information on Korea. At that time there wasn't much out there so I am doing my part in helping families across the world not be so freaked out when it comes time to move to Korea. The 2nd reason I started this blog was to help stay connected to family members back in the states. Today it is so much more that.
Are you moving to Korea? Do you have questions, concerns? Are you freaking out? Freak out no further - click the button to ask a question. I'll do my best to answer open and honestly.
