Thanksgiving is only a week away, and that makes me nervous this year. My parents are hosting Thanksgiving this year, that means I will also welcome the family in my new apartment and that is just a little nerve-racking. I have only had a few visitors here and three of them were impressed because they … Continue reading Thanksgiving week

A lot has happened since the last time I was here. We've done a lot of work in the apartment and the rest of the house and I think we're closer to being able to move in. I didn't think we could do this but it looks like we can. All of this made it … Continue reading Congratulations France!
Today I want to take the chance to, once again, thank my mom for always being there for us (my brother and me), through the good and the bad and never, ever letting us down. We disagree sometimes, she gets nervous when I drive, but some people don't even want to get in the car … Continue reading Happy Mother’s Day
This week, being the week before Easter, I thought I would be able to rest and relax. I was hoping to go to the beach, the movies and maybe even have a lazy day just staying home all day. The week didn't turn out this way. Begging with having to go get blood drawn on … Continue reading Easter break
I'll begin this post by sharing something I wrote last week but forgot to post. Yesterday I got on a plane again, this time coming to Boston to spend Christmas with Jose's sisters. This is a new experience because I don't think I have ever spent Christmas away from home but it will still be … Continue reading Christmas in Boston
This morning my grandpa had a new project, I don't know how many he's had since we've been here but I have been with him and my aunt to Home Depot at least four times since we've been here. This is a lot considering four is about the amount of times I go to Home … Continue reading The new project

I planned to have my Mother's Day post yesterday, on Mother'sDay, but doesn't it stand out more when it's the only Mother's Day post you see today? I hope everyone got to spend the day with their loved ones and that all mothers got the thanks and love they deserve all year long. Not only … Continue reading Happy Day After Mother’s Day!
Today we were celebrating my grandfather's 80th birthday, for this, one of his daughters planned something bigger than the usual immediate family lunch or dinner. This is a big birthday, so the celebration was a little bigger than usual. His friends, sister, brother in law and nieces were also invited. After lunch, before having cake, … Continue reading Friends/family
When I was growing up we used to go to this park where we could run around all day, there were swings, a lot of trees, grass to run around in and get covered in dirt and anything else we could find. I remember going there a lot when I was in elementary school for … Continue reading A day at the dog park
It had been a while since Robin and Lego stayed over in our house and I was nervous because I didn't know how we would be able to handle four dogs in the apartment but they spent the night last night and everybody survived. I survived but I feel as if I ran 5 miles today … Continue reading Our weekend with four dogs

She has a backyard where my dogs could run around, so we brought them with us (after asking her if we could) for lunch . Later my brother brought Robin and Lego, his two dogs. We had four … Continue reading Three Kings Day with my puppies

I'm back home after a great weekend with family in New Jersey. I was with my three aunts, my uncle and three cousins. I got to visit one of my cousins in college, walk around the outlets in Atlantic City, and fight with the youngest one (not really fighting, just goofing around), proving that I'm … Continue reading Weekend full of memories
