Florida. A visit back home.
January 9, 2011 § 2 Comments
Florida was fantastic. Straight up fantastic.
I am so thrilled that I got the chance to hug so many precious family members and friends after such a long period of absence. Staying with my aunt and uncle (who are like second parents to me) brought back so many great memories of when I studied and lived with them in Miami. Hanging out with my cousins, especially my cousin (and sister) Xixi, was like a dream come true – seriously, that girl and I could laugh in any situation, I love her to pieces, just adore her.
We made the trip “up North” to see my brother and his family too. I cannot count the ways that I’ve missed that little family which consists of my brother, my sister-in-law Stacey and their two precious little girls. I had a great time with them and I cannot wait until I’m in their presence again.
I also got to see my friends, both from Broward and Dade County – what else could a girl wish for! Thanks again Katie for organizing that get together at your house and thank you Denice for canceling that appointment so that you could see me. I love you guys and miss you all so much and I can’t tell you enough how much it means to me to have friends like you.
David, what can I say? You are a sweetheart and I really, really hope that you make it out this way. Like you said, you’ve got to do all of that traveling NOW, before “you” turns into “two, three” or more ;) Barbie, you are a true “yummy mummy” and I love you sooooo much. It was so great to be able to hang out with you and Xixi- just like old “tims.” I pray that we can do that again really soon.
Here are a few pictures from our trip – I started off by blogging from Miami but had to quit because I didn’t want to take time away from being with the people that I love. Mom, Papi and Keese, we missed you and everyone is anxiously awaiting to hear news of your arrival in your new country.
Peace and Love,
