I wonder Wednesday series

hey gang! Our amazing friends headed back to Phoenix on Sunday and all I can say is WOW! What an amazing time time we had and it was so good to see them after over a year and half. They loved beautiful Puerto Rico and especially loved hanging with sweet Gabriela. I secretly think they came all this way just for her and that’s alright by me. Lots of loving from so many people can’t be a bad thing!

So we’re slowly getting back into our routine (and I mean slooooowly) and I got to wondering how it is that certain people come into your life. I mean, if you really think about it there are MILLIONS of people walking around and how is that you end up meeting that best friend, that friend who becomes like family, your wife/husband. One different decision, one left turn instead of right, and things could be a whole lot different. Just think about that. 

We were very lucky to have Judie, Michelle, Kristy, and Gene as neighbors who truly were a blessing before and after my mother’s passing. Their friendship with my father after I moved away helped him through that period of grief and I can never repay them for that. 

And I can say that about a lot of the people in my life who somehow miraculously found their way into my little <crazy> world. I appreciate and send them love everyday.

Halloween 2015

Hi friends! We have some amazing friends visiting us this week from Arizona so I’ve been MIA but I just wanted to share some quick pics from our Puerto Rican Halloween. We didn’t have any trick or treaters and didn’t look like our neighbors were too into it but Gabi had a blast dressing up and showing off to our neighbors across the street. Next year we’ll definitely head someplace where she’ll be able to get the full experience. It was so fun checking out everyone’s lil trick or treaters on Facebook. Hope everyone had a great time!


Pure. Joy.
