We're Going to Paradise

Our friends are AMAZING! They are sending us to Hawaii for a MONTH! Just me and Juan. For a MONTH! Oh my. We're so excited. Sarita, Nono, Nana, and Papa Memo had our bags packed for us this morning. With our tickets. I can't believe it. We're going to be here in a few hours!

I don't know how we got so lucky with our friends. We really are lucky. Nana, Nono, and Papa Memo are going to take turns watching Sarita. All the guys in the mariachi pitched in money for our trip. And literally, everything is paid for! I feel so blessed!

Our friends know how much Juan and I need this vacation. Since I got pregnant, we haven't been on a trip. And we could never imagine leaving our daughter when she was sick. But right now, she is in the middle of treatments. During one of her 6 week breaks. It's still going to be tough to be apart from her. But Juan and I really need this.

The last 4 years have been tough. We've endured our little girl's illness. And a few miscarriages. A major flood. And almost losing everything. Believe me, we're going to enjoy this trip. Thanks again to ALL of our FRIENDS! We'll see you when we get back from PARADISE! ~C

Cari Bear's Blog

How did I not know that our little "Cari Bear" has a blog? It's really cute. And so far, she's posted about her holidays, traveling, her daddy, some crafts, and school. She is a super special girl to us. Cari is Papa Memo's daughter. And honestly, she is the most amazing young lady that I know! So go take a look at her blog! She even wrote a post about Sarita yesterday. :) ~C

I got this amazing gift for Christmas. From the very thoughtful Chiquitita. She happens to have so many great ideas! And she's my Comadre. And one of my very best friends. You know the kind. When you life is falling apart, you call them. La Chiquitita is that friend for me. She inspired me and encouraged me to start my blog. Yup, she has been blogging for almost 10 years now. Her private's AMAZING!

And she's been journal-ing even longer. I remember the very first trip we ever took together, La Chiquitita had her journal. And she was peacefully lost in her words. Writing away. It always amazed me. But she just loves to write.

Before Christmas, we were talking about journal-ing. And a few of us were wanting to start on this little project. My Comadre had a good idea. And got all of us these amazing journals and pens. A very thoughtful gift. The first few pages, she wrote a nice letter and added a few quotes. I will cherish this forever!

Over the last few weeks, I've been writing every day in my journal. I like to blog. And I really like to read blogs. Like no bodies business! Especially the more personalized, family blogs. :) But journal-ing, I feel like I can write about anything and everything on my mind. All those scary thoughts, and happy things. And I never feel like I'm going to be judged. It's a nice little hobby to get into. And I enjoy setting 10 minutes aside every day to just be alone with my thoughts. ~C
