Kyle and I took an anniversary trip to my homeland, Colombia. Did y'all know that although I was raised in Memphis, TN and everything about me is Southern through and through, I was actually made in Colombia? Full blood Spanish. This country is a charm and a half. Ask Paris, she was here the same week as us (Celeb status) ;) Anywho, this trip was needed. It's funny, different cultures really do shape you. While we took this trip to celebrate our second wedding anniversary, I feel like it refreshed us as people in general. Most of the Colombian population is so poor, yet so happy. They fill you with their generosity and welcoming spirits. Being unplugged from technology was a plus too. Kyle and I got to really enjoy each other's company, and be surrounded by my family. Man, I sure do miss that bunch. Spending time with my sister and her amazing little family was so wonderful.
For a recap- well, we watched a lot of TV, ate a lot of food, slept a lot, did spa time, shopped, and played with the two best twin nephews in this planet. the besttttt.
Our hearts need a little filling once in a while, don't they? I find that when I'm away, I get to put my priorities in order. Praying, reading the Word, loving my family, and reflecting on the things in my life. A quote that gathers my thoughts is "you will find that it is necessary to let things go, simply for the reason that they are heavy."
After the ten days were over, I had to have a small sinus surgery, so I stayed for an extra week. Now I'm en route back home, back to real life. Except with a bandaged face.
Have a great one, and THANK YOU for reading!
