on a trip with the family = day 3
i'll be back soon with photos & replies!
so, i have a story to tell you! as most of you know, nicola & i are pen buddies, sending packages back & forth to each other. well, a couple of months back, i asked her to send me a copy of oh comely magazine, because i had recently heard about it & wanted to check it out. since it was only in the uk, she was happy to send me a copy, no sorry TWO copies! : ) near the same time, she sent a letter to oh comely telling them how i wanted a copy & also about our joint blog here--and--there. & guess what! they published her letter in the next issue! : ) i thought it was so neat. & really exciting!
brynna: isn't it adorable? i love the little clouds on it & the fact that it is called "love is in the air" makes me happy.
dandelionkisses: haha aww thanks : ) yeah! that's the big sweater that i got & told you about. it reminds me of you. i hope she opens an etsy too : ) well, the only one i started was solanin. it's pretty good so far. a little bit scandalous for regular manga i would say. it's rated t+ (older teen), so...yeah. haha.
inside the cabinet of wonder: hehe : ) thanks nicola. the sweater is really big & comfy. i got it thrifting a few weeks ago & i love it.
allison: thanks allison :] means a lot.

amy: ooo! i'll be sure to check out nana! thanks amy! & i'll also have to check out the comic it's based on. oh yes, i noticed emily's ballet part & wondered about if she did training for the role or what. she's such a good actor! i haven't seen any japanese dramas. they are probably good too!! i should check some out... mmm...i want boba again now. haha. & i'm going to look up these chinese pancakes now. yum sounds good. & thanks for being there for me, amy. i'll keep your offer in mind : )

natalie: hehe doesn't it look amazing?? & i love the asian mall. i would go there more often, but it is a bit of a drive...so i only get to go a little bit.
my-my: yes, that's so true about the asian mall! so many surprises hidden away in every corner. thanks for letting me know about your new blog...i was wondering where you went! i think we are all slowly getting through everything, it is slow but sure : )
sara & sarah~meschelle: thank you for your kind thoughts : )
yesterday was fun. i am visiting home for spring break, so my mom took me on a little day trip. we went to the asian mall. both of us have been watching a lot of korean tv shows & we felt like some ramen with kimchi. we then went shopping at the cute little asian stores. i bought some pens & paper & a gift for wendy. then i drank boba tea while we went grocery shopping at the market for goodies to eat & cook. it was such fun : )
oh & i'm really hooked on these korean tv shows! haha. if you want to see what it is all about, i recommend starting with you're beautiful. i love these shows because they are really cute & funny & about first love : ) they make me happy.

although he was not my brother by blood, he was part of my family. & honestly i can't put into words how i feel just yet. it's a mix of so many emotions. but now i feel like i have a hole in my heart where he was. but day by day it's starting to get better. i actually started this post 5 days ago, but i couldn't finish it. but today i felt like i was finally ready to tell you about it. i just needed someone to listen. thanks : )
