the last box swon opened contained the letters that i collected from some of our kent friends. swon wanted to know how her friends found out that her wedding was soon and i admitted to letting the cat out of the bag in order to surprise her. we talked a little about how we sent messages back and forth over facebook. then, in the little korean i can understand, i heard her explain to her mom while sifting through the envelopes, 'this is from my japanese friend, and these are from my american friends.' it was a really touching moment that i wish i could properly share with everyone who sent letters.
