Hey, hey from South Korea!!

Hey guys, I’m just stopping bye today for a quick post to update you all with what’s been happening here in Korea. Today was an incredibly amazing day. We just returned back to our hotel after watching my younger brother Red make finals after today’s Olympic Men’s Snowboarding Slopestyle Qualifiers. Red qualified third and ended up being the only American to make finals. Pretty Surreal.

I just wanted to share some photos here from the last couple days, including Opening Ceremonies. I’ll be back with another update and more photos from tomorrow’s finals later this week!

Happy Sunday!

  2. I love watching the Olympics! I enjoy the snowboarding events and saw all of the runs and was cheering for Red, so awesome he won the first gold medal for team USA. Congrats to Red and your entire family! Enjoy the games, sites, and good food. Think about the rest of us that would love to be there. Share some of that Korean food inspiration with us when you get back home 🙂

    I have only been reading your blog for a few weeks- I found you on Pinterest. I’ve made your broccoli cheese soup & fell inlove with your cooking. So much so, I ordered your cookbook & it’s arriving tomorrow (I’m so excited). talent seems to abound in your family!

  7. Thanks to you and the insights you share into your amazing family, so many of us were cheering Red on and were THRILLED to see him win GOLD! The first one for Team USA this Olympics, too! Hope you are having the best time… and once you’re home and back at work, I’d love to see a post from your parents’ perspective on how they’ve managed to raise such incredibly successful children, making a name for themselves in their respective fields. In the meantime, enjoy South Korea!

  9. Congrats to your brother! Last night, my husband told me “some 17 year old kid won gold in Slopeside”, and I asked, “wait, what was his name?”. “Red something.” And I screamed ” I TOTALLY KNOW HIM!!!!. Wow!!!”. Well, it seems like I know him. Thanks for sharing his journey with us!

  10. Every week, I make pita using your recipe for my church in the Cleveland suburbs and my fellow members love it. This week, we celebrated because it’s GOLD MEDAL pita now that local hero Red won!
