2015... it feels like it´s been gone since forever, as well as I´ve been missing from this computer for too long myself. So even though is the middle of January, it still is my first day of 2016 in this blog and my thoughts are echoing loudly inside my head to come out. I feel content and restful of the year that just passed, as I am excited about the infinite possibilities of this new year! The girls are growing up so very fast, Ale will be 13 in two weeks, and with that teenage years are sure to challenge us to our very core... Each year defies me a little more as a mom and as a wife as a woman. IT doesn´t get easier, it gets messier, it gets more challenging it gets funner!
For New Year we traveled to Florida to visit Gabriel´s family. He is one of seven siblings, and five were going to get together this year at one of his sisters´who lives in West Palm Beach... isn´t that awesome?? We had the best simple time ever, barbecues at the beach, movies for the young, beer drinking night for adults as we watched the kids become best friends for life and make memories that will last a lifetime. WE talked for hours, remembered all times for hours again, we sat danced, we sang, we were always loud... we were family!
I could sit endless hours just looking at them...
my babies ready to celebrate
no age difference whatsoever!
This is what happens when you get your American Uncle to dance like a latino!
After this much fun what better than more? We didn´t win the lottery this year, but last year on the cruise we took, I won a cruise! So on January third we set sail again!!!
cruising... something I can definitely get used too!!!
Specially afternoons spent like this...
Gabriel always asks me why it is that I always stay behind... well, who wouldn´t with this view. Just watching them be brings joy to my life!
Benefits of having teenagers and a toddler?? you can take the night off once in a while!
Yeap Ale... we are going swimming with dolphins!!!!!
So here we are, starting a whole New Year... I will always walk two steps behind taking care of this family, I will then walk beside you, and in front of you when you need me too... The thing is that I will always be there, always! There’s a giant beach out there, the cruise of life that will take us everyday to a new destination, because even if it takes us to the same place everyday, or if it cancels a port of its itinerary there will always be something to enjoy as long as we are together.
So whatever it its that we make of each day, we will sing, dance, we will make noise, we will make color, we will forgive each other, we will make love, we will carry the twinkly lights that we took of the Christmas tree in our hearts, and we will shine through, we will thank and praise God for the love that we have and even though we might cry somedays, we will smile!!!
Happy New Year!!!
