Korea’s fall pregnancy has shown me the most brilliant and beautiful autumn foliage I’ve ever seen! Golden yellow, orange, red, back to yellow and now brown. Sadly now, autumn leaves are mostly fallen, signaling winter is close at hand…
Experiencing Autumn in Korea
It’s such a privilege to be able to witness autumn weather up-close and in such stunning technicolor detail. Sure, I’ve seen autumn’s wardrobe change on the east coast in the U.S. Seeing the fall leaves change color is gorgeous, though not nearly as spectacular as Korea.

But I’ve never actually seen fall… fall. My first 9-5 job working in a Korean public school allowed me to finally see it. It’s made me realize that each day is a gift and being chained to a Korean work desk isn’t so bad. If I’m not surrounded by the excited peals of children, then the view outside my office window during this season has made for a pleasant afternoon work break preoccupation.
I watch as the wind shakes trees, releasing leaves into a delightful musical sequence… a warm trail of Korean love letters.
