    Hello, thank you for subscribing to my blog. I’ve been back home for a few months now. It’s been an up hill climb re-adjusting to living back home, working, and becoming a new aunt. But, I am happy to be home close to family. While I lived in Korea none of my family were ever able to visit me, so its really nice to have them back in my daily life.

    I am glad to hear you enjoy my posts. I look forward to reading all of yours, and love your comic drawings!
