And then there were TWO...........

.......... 2 YEARS SINCE WE STARTED DATING!!!!!!!!!!! Can you believe that? Well I can't!!! I remember watching him at the gym through the mirrors. Then he'd catch me and when I pretended not to look he would *wink*. He'd pull my hand through the crowds of people and then didn't bother to hold my hand in the movies. I wasn't sure what was going on, but I liked it!!!! I still don't know what is going on, but now I love it and hope that it goes on for a very long time ;)
This past Sunday Sung Hyun and I celebrated 2 years together
Sung Hyun showed up with a cake with two candles

And I cooked him a kick-ass breakfast according to Western standards.......sorry no kimchi babe!!!!

Then he gave me a love letter and I gave him a suitcase (so romantic of me, I know). But I was thinking practical

And he'll need this when we go to Canada *hint*hint*

He treated me to a nice steak dinner

It was delicious
Then we headed up to Seoul Tower since I had never been

Check out all the locks!!!!! The couples buy them and write a little message on them and lock them together along a wire fence
Nice day indeed!!!!!

Congrats on surviving two years of an intercultural relationship! haha--just joking (about the surviving part).

We're working on year 12 (since we started dating)!!!

Marie said...

Awwwwww a BIG congratulations to the two of you! That's so exciting for you!

Andrew and I will be celebrating 8 years together the end of the month, and 5 years of marriage on Aug 2....time sure flies!

Why am I here??? said...

You know what BELOVED, I have you to thank initially for allowing me to see that and intercultural relationship is possible. I wrote a comment on BETWEEN PEE AND KIMCHI and although Jennifer never responded to me I do remember you telling me all about your life. So thanks for those words of encouragement right from the start!!!! And congrats to you as well......FIGHTING!!!

Thanks Marie!! I remember going through wedding colours with you. Was it really 5 years ago.........HOLY SHIT!!!!

You guys are adorable.

I have to wonder if a couple breaks up do they go back and get the locks?

Beloved said...

Hey Jenn,
I'm so happy to have been a positive influence. I do remember what it was like when my hubby and I started dating and knew not a single other couple like ourselves. We felt kind of lost and like, "Is this even possible?" It was sort of scary. I guess I'm just saying that's why I responded to you on Jennifer's blog, and spilled my guts. :)
It's fun reading your blog and remembering my early life in Korea when hubby and I started dating. You guys make it look so easy, though. Haha. All the best!

Congrats, Jen. Good Man and I are impressed ;) and happy for you both.

I think they throw the lock's key in the river or grass to indicate that nobody will ever unlock their love...I read that somewhere. Ask Gym Guy.

Hey Jennifer,

Congrats on the two years, that's awesome. No doubt there will be many, many, many more to come.
I'm still long behind you, having only spent 8 months with Q ;)
Glad to hear that you're still so in love.

It's funny how life is, so unpredictable and so interesting. I bet you 5 years ago you had no idea that you'd be coming to Korea, let alone find this amazing man. Just makes ya wonder what the future holds!

All the best to you two.

Hi Jennifer!

I just wanted to let you know how much I have enjoyed your blog. I stumbled across it the other day while doing some research on teaching English in Korea, and have been reading through all your entries the last few days. I think it's great that you are truly experiencing the culture -- spending time with the people, learning the language, and enjoying the food. A lot of the blogs I've found of people teaching in Korea are only interested in making money and drinking at the bars, so yours was very refreshing. I'm hoping to be over there sometime next February or March (if everything goes according to plan), and I was wondering what the name of your school was? You seem to be very happy there and it looks like you're treated well, and from what I've read, you cannot be too careful about finding a school -- some will try to screw you over. Thanks, and happy 2 year anniversary! I look forward to reading more about your adventures in Korea. ^__^

Why am I here??? said...

Hey Jennifer,

Thanks so much for popping by and leaving a comment ;)

I would be happy to answer any questions you may have about teaching in Korea and if I don't know the answer then I can probably direct you somewhere or to someplace that could help you.

Please email me at and I'll get back to you that way ;)


As for the rest of you commenters......THANKS A BUNCH AS ALWAYS ;)
