Subject: Hi Cousin!
My lovely, lovely cousin, i_teach,
I have to tell you how much I love to read your blog of your adventures in Korea. I admire and envy you. Even if I was single and childless I do not think I would have the guts to move to another country by myself. Especially not knowing the language or how to get around. And yet here you are venturing out, determined to make yourself at home in a foreign country.
I've been bragging about you lately to my friends. Too bad they "don't like to read" because I've been trying to get them to take a look at your blog. I'm positive they will be hooked once they see for themselves. But maybe it's just me... maybe it's just because you are my blood... maybe it's just because I am such a dreamer. =)
I regret not spending more time with you (any time with you) while you were here in the states. I want to expose myself to all your worldly knowledge. Please let me know when you are back home and I will make sure to set aside time.
I love you, cousin. Please make sure to take care of yourself there. If there is anything from home that you need sent to you, please do not hesitate to ask!!!!!
Send my regards to your family! =)
