Destiny, Marco's wife, my sister-in-law, and good friend, simply amazes me. On top of running a small business, while visiting she made it a point to go on a few outings (with a six week old!) to open our eyes to the beauty of their part of the world. We went to a local farm where the we could explore, pet animals (not something Cullen was interested in!), run around, and enjoy the toy train- all placed against a backdrop of rolling, luscious, green hills. Just idyllic. Another day we went to a sprawling, local park in the early evening. It was kid heaven. A huge jungle gym, slides, a "general store," fun sand box, and, best of all... SWINGS!
I often pinch myself at how lucky I am to have been blessed with such an amazing family. The laughs, snuggles, hugs, kisses, amazing conversations, and overall wonderful memories made during this quick, but very full visit will be cherished forever.
