It is such a special day today.. not only because I am a mom myself, but also I have a mom who is one of the strongest women I know. She had her mom but lost her when she was eight years old during Korean War. My mother grew up raising her little brother and herself in a little town in Pusan, Korea. Once she told me the one wish she had as a child was to call someone "mom". I can not even imagine how one could grow without a mom. As I raise my boys, many moments reminded me of my childhood and how amazing my mom was to me. I wonder how she learned to be that outstanding mother she was who she never had in her life. She promised me that she would be there for me when I am down or disappointed and she kept her promise. Until this day, she is my best friend, my counselor, and my biggest fan!

My mom would convince me to wear the dirty shirt one more day to save a load of laundry by saying I looked really cute in the yellow (pic on the left), and I was confused as you can see in my sad face. ^^ The other two pictures are about my mom's leather jacket. I (pic on the right) am wearing the very jacket that she wore (center pic)  when I graduated from Kindergarten (ha! - we had that graduation back then!). Can you tell that there is 40 years gap in between those pictures? These pictures and this beautiful now vintage leather jacket are so special to me and I will cherish them forever. The little girl on the left had a big dream and my mother taught, brought up, nurtured, and gave everything she could to support that little girl to become the woman on the right who still has a big dream. There were endless ups and downs, we shared laughs and tears, we celebrated every little things and prayed so many nights together. I had the best mother that I could ever hope... 

I know every one of you must have something even more special that remind you of your beautiful and wonderful mom. Tell her how much you appreciate her and what she had done for you and the family. And also love and enjoy your littles even more as they will remember every bit of your love dearly. Let's celebrate it today!

On this special day, I hope that you will slow down, smile, and enjoy more
- xoxo, Kyung

p.s. I would love to share one more story with you today. Right is what "Yellowhale" sounds like. Try it, it is really amazing. Yellowhale is written and played by the fabulous blue note Jazz pianist Kwak Yoon Chan who found and fell in love with my Yellowhale Story and gave this beautiful song to Yellowhale. There is an amazing story behind how he and I met, but will tell you more next time.

Happy Mother's Day!

This Sunday is my 11th Mother's day celebration.  I love being a mom to my wonderful two boys. I treasure the opportunity to bring up their characters,  to share and enjoy every bit of our days, and to watch them grow into someone amazing - a lot more amazing than I thought possible. My favorite part of being a mom is to teach myself to stand tall even when I feel down, to endure more even when it is hard,  to be and do my best all the time! The boys have been my ultimate teachers to help me being myself and push the limit. I wanted to share mother's day gift that I received this year. It is our beautiful family picture! The picture was done by my friend Andrea Halsey few weeks ago. (She is an extremely talented photographer and also a mother of two  - she did capture the essence of our family.)  It was the best mother's day gift of all. - it almost brings me into tears whenever I see this photo. 

This weekend, while I celebrate my special day, I want to give all of you moms in the world my warmest hug. Happy Mother's day to you all!
