    We did it!!!

    Four long years training and preparing for this day… And we did it!!! We worked our butts off and got our black belts for Taekwondo! We were so nervous for the whole week leading up to the big day. We’ve been working hard every night, reciting the club oath, going over our Korean terminology, practicing patterns, breaking boards (thanks to Ivan for helping with these!), self defense and discussing tactics for our fighting. But it all paid off in the end.

    Origami Cranes

    The crane’s habit of mating with only one partner for the duration of its life makes it a strong symbol for marital fidelity and honor. As a result, the origami crane is a powerful symbol for loyalty, nobility and beauty. According to Japanese tradition, anyone with the patience and commitment to fold 1,000 paper cranes will be granted their most desired wish, because they have exhibited the cranes’ loyalty and recreated their beauty. The true story of Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes demonstrates the power of one person to create change and the values that are cherished by all cultures.

Strangely enough, he could compare my pre-wedding nerves with an experience of his own – sky diving.  Yep, you read right.  Perhaps the two scariest events in one’s lifetime (add a third for any guy who has to pop the question).
