#100/100


It finally came to the end. It’s been a long journey. It took me almost exactly one year. This project was harder than I expected. Not only because of the amount of work I had but dealing with my emotions. Like any other relationship, we have ups and downs. When things are icy between us, it was hard to work. I pushed myself to do it. While I was concentrating and thinking about the moment we took the pictures, I forgot why I was so upset. And I was able to look past my stupidity. It was therapeutic.

This project taught me about our relationship a lot. Where we started and where we are heading. We grew older during this time. One year doesn’t seem long. But each year, we were different and it piled up as a decade.
It’s still amazing to me that we met as strangers and became the most important people to each other. We have way more time left together than what we’ve already experienced. I’m very excited and grateful for our future.

I hope you enjoyed my project. If you had any chance to reflect on your own life and relationships, that’d be my honor. I’ll keep creating and try to share with you.

Thank you.

I don’t remember when I started doing this.  Everytime he gets up from the couch I have to hit or kick his butt.  Sometimes he takes revenge and it becomes a tickle fight.  From time to time I think that our play is childish.  But what is grownup play? I think there is no such thing.  Being an adult is having more responsibility with the same fun kids have.

Have fun people!

He often comes over to the kitchen when I’m cooking. I let him try the food so I can adjust the taste. When I started cooking for us, my food was too bland for him. I like food a bit bland and he likes it slightly salty. I didn’t like the fact that he couldn’t enjoy my food as much as he should. I started making things more towards his taste. Now I can nail it most of the time. I think my taste has also changed little.

I’m not upset in the drawing. That is my morning face. My husband usually wakes up earlier than me. When I finally get up, I go downstairs sitting next to him with this face. He tries to wake me up a little but I usually fall back to sleep on the couch.

This is our weekend morning ritual.

I’m a big fan of cooking.  And I try to cook breakfast for my husband most days.  Sometimes though, especially on the weekends, I just want to curl up on the couch.  Then, it’s time for delivery food.

We don’t have many choices.  We rotate the menu between pizza, curry, fried chicken, and Mc Donalds. We try to eat healthy food, but it’s fun to order food from time to time.

I really like when my husband comes over and kisses and hugs me in the kitchen.  We often talk next to the staircase.  It is like our standing bar.  When I’m cooking, we start drinking a bit and he stands next to it and talks to me.  That is one of my favorite things.

In 2016, we got this small camera called Narrative Clip.  It takes pictures automatically every 15,30 or 60 seconds.  I was fascinated by it and wanted to know how our daily life looks.  It showed me how much we talk and laugh together.
I’m not that touchy.  I didn’t grow up in an environment where hugs were common.  I think most Korean kids, at least my generation and older, didn’t grow up with such affection.
On the other hand, my husband is very affectionate.  He gives me hugs, kisses, and squeezes my face a lot.  I’m thankful for it. It’s easy to forget how important physical contact is.  If you are with your loved one, hug them now. :)

In Japan, I’m inspired by small city views, especially with power lines.  In Korea, where I’m from, don’t have a lot of power lines on the street.  It was a relatively new area in Seoul, so they put most of them underground.  In Japan, the power lines cross the roofs and sky all around the country.  They look chaotic but also harmonized.  One of my favorite scenes in Japan is the contrast of black wires against sunrise or sunset.

I saw this view in Kamakura. I also took a picture of my husband posing for me in Kotoku-in Temple.

Holding Hands

Walking with holding hands is one of the privileges of two people in a relationship.

It always feels nice. :-)
