잘가 다음에 봐 — Jal-gah, Megan, Dam-ae-bwa

We took Megan to the airport this morning, told her we loved her, and sent her off to Korea on her adventure. There were tears, Grandma (David’s mom) and Grandpa (my dad) came with us, and seeing Grandpa give Megan such a huge hug, seeing the tears in his eyes, still makes me cry. I […]
