With Love

Time flies. In less than three weeks, I'll be in Argentina. For those of you out of the loop, I've been accepted to a MA program offered by Georgetown University at la Universidad Nacional de San Martín in Buenos Aires. Short of a possible Christmas vacation, I'll be in South America for the next two and a half years. Holy crap.

When I studied in Barcelona, I sent bloated emails chronicling my experience to my loved ones, dubbed "Missives from Spain." Out of a desire to save their inboxes from the groaning weight, "Con Cariño" is born. This experience will likely be the biggest adventure of my life, and I want to invite you all to participate.

"Con cariño" is an apt description of what I will post here - love letters to and from Argentina. The title is also an intention I've set for my time in Argentina, and for my life.

Whatever life brings, and whatever I am called to do, let it begin and end... with love.
