To My Future In-Laws On My Wedding Day, Thank You For Raising The Man Of My Dreams

Thank you for raising him to be the man I get to marry.

To My Future In-Laws On My Wedding Day, Thank You For Raising The Man Of My Dreams

Today is the day. I get to marry the love of your life and the love of mine.

I know you are worried for him because you don't want him to get hurt. You were the one taking care of him, even when he didn't know. I know it'll be hard to let him go but know that he's in good hands. I'll be so happy to care for him and share my life with him. I'll take care of him when he is sick and feed him your special food that cheered him up when he was a child. I'll hold him when he is sad and needs support. I'll support him, even in the darkest of moments.

In my eyes, there is no one else. He's the one I want to grow old with. I want to watch our kids and grandkids grow into wonderful human beings and be there for them like you were there for my *almost* husband.

There's always the stigma that in-laws are the worst for a wife and husband. I don't want that and I want to build an amazing relationship with you that stays strong for the rest of our lives.

I grew up without strong parents and so I look up to you and respect all that you've done for your son. You made him into the man I know and love. He is who he is because of the love, compassion, and time you put in. You taught him respect and kindness. You taught him bravery and honor. You taught him how he wants to be as a father to our children. You taught him how to be the best person he can be and to always strive to be even better. And that extends to me now, because he teaches me how to be an even better human being.

Today is the day that changes our lives forever but it won't take your son away. No, it'll bring him even closer.

Today is the day that I get to marry the man of my dreams and I couldn't be any happier for the future as your daughter-in-law.

Today I say "I do" to your son and I'm so very lucky that he chose me.

Thank you for bringing him into this world and into my life.

Thank you for raising him to be the man I get to marry.

My Ethnicity

Hispanic is not a race... it’s an ethnicity. The term Hispanic describes a group of people whose common thread is language and/or culture. I’m a Hispanic woman born in Argentina to Korean parents. I self-identify as Hispanic/Latina and my personal experiences can’t be summarized by the color of my skin or the languages on my tongue. That is because every single person in the universe has a unique experience. Whether someone labels me as Korean or Argentine or American, that will never change my experiences as a Spanish speaker, immigrant, child of divorced parents, Californian, college graduate (Go Bears!), omnivore, writer, or any other label I choose for myself.

I have had the opportunity to visit so many places in my lifetime, and recently one of those places was Nashville, Tennessee. There is so much to do and see in Nashville but here are some of my favorites that I would highly recommend.

Your Work Week As Told By Michael Scott And Stanley Hudson

"The Office" is basically the best American TV show created in the past 15 years (you can fight me on this). And through all its hilarity and cringe-worthy "that would never happen in real life" moments, the show really does have a lot of relatable themes, as can be seen by the little compilation I put together of Michael Scott and Stanley Hudson.

October Is Overrated, Let's Just Accept This Fact

I have never liked the month of October. I like the fall weather and the beginning of wearing sweaters in the crisp fall air, but I never associated this with the month of October.

The Plight Of Being Bigger Than A D-Cup

"Big boobs are like puppies: they're fun to look at and play with, but once they're yours, you realize they're a lot of responsibility." - Katie Frankhart, Her Campus


This probably sounds like the most self-absorbed, egotistical, and frankly downright irritating white-girl problem... but there's more to this I promise.
