My Auntie Squee is bilingual. Speaking Spanish is a big part of her life, so learning it in pieces is becoming part of mine.
It's not just "this word means that word", there's more to it than that. There's meaning and nuance and idiom .
We're both so excited for all sorts of milestones. Our being long-distance makes us move towards them gently, with occasional little rushes of new things. It's rich and luxurious in its slow movement.
The word for that is despacito . It means slowly, carefully, mindfully.
I love her so much.
