One-Year Birthday Celebration!

{ a collage of photos from nathan's dohl }
Nathan celebrated his 1-year birthday (dohl in Korean) on September 26.  Hard to believe a year has already gone by since our little guy's arrival into the world.

We had a small, quaint celebration in our home with family and our growth group from church as guests.  Nathan had a great time until he had to wear the hanbok (traditional Korean outfit) -- he was not fond of the material.

For the doljabi (Korean custom where the child selects an item to determine his future), he picked the stethoscope and the Bible.  Looks like we have a future medical missionary on our hands!

Nathan, you are such an amazing blessing to our family.  Before you came along, we found it very hard to imagine loving another child as much as we do your older brother.  But as soon as you entered into the world, you proved us wrong!  Your infectious smile and sweet demeanor brighten up our days.  We love you dearly.

Necklace Organizer

Now I'm pretty certain I'm not the only woman faced with the following dilemma. 

How does one keep their growing collection of necklaces and beads organized and untangled? 

Well, the solution I came up with is really simple and cheap!  I used a plastic coat rack which cost me all of $5.  I took a couple screws and hung it up on the wall of the bedroom right above my jewelry case.  Now, I can easily find what I'm looking for and it's neatly organized!  And it doesn't make for bad eye candy on the wall.
