Day 305: We know it's been a while since we've blogged- there's been lots going on and our internet has been spotty. So before we update you on all of the new things that have been happening- we thought we'd first give you a quick post from my birthday last weekend. Last Friday, Brandon had all of my new kids and all of my old kids throw me a surprise party in the morning. It was so sweet, and I know have about 50 hand written cards and a lot of uneaten birthday cake :) Friday night, the teachers all went our for Korean BBQ to celebrate, which was fun and delicious!
Early the next morning, a bunch of us headed to Jinhae a beautiful city about 5 hours from Bucheon. It is famous for it's cherry blossom festival this time of year and it was a nice change of scenery. Since the festival just started, not all of the trees were in full bloom- but we had amazing weather and it was still very beautiful. It was a great 25th birthday and I'm glad I got to spend it with such awesome friends!

Oh, and I almost forgot the best part of my birthday...Brandon bought me a new 85mm f/1.8 lens, which I have been wanting for quite a while :) Here are some of the beautiful blossoms I was able to capture with it...

We hope you guys are enjoying the beginning of Spring, and we'll be back soon with a more
in depth update. We miss you and love you lots!

With love from South Korea,
Shayna & Brandon xo
