Come home

My friend and fellow Boston blogger, David from WGB, posted this video last month.  I thought I’d share the video on my blog today since many of us are prone to making New Year’s resolutions.

Happy birthday Dad

A little known fact is that one of the most amazing men of our time happens to be celebrating his birthday today. Happy birthday Dad.  Enjoy your last year as a 60-something and make the most of it. Wishing you much love and health in the years ahead.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving 2014, Lake House

Thanksgiving 2014 on Lake Winnipesaukee

Sergio and I have returned to spend Thanksgiving Day at my parent’s house on Lake Winnipesaukee.  Fortunately, the weather is more mild than last year when we visited.  While I’m very happy to share that the forecast is mostly sunny with temperatures in the low to mid 50s, last year’s surprise snowstorm in northern New England was unbelievably picturesque so I thought I’d share one of the photos Sergio snapped of me walking back to the house with his phone.

I also wanted to use this opportunity to wish any who may stop by to read my blog today a very happy Thanksgiving.

Congratulations Susan and Brett

married, marriage, wedding, familyMy youngest sister, Susan, is getting married later today.  I’ll be out of town through Saturday celebrating with family and friends and wanted to say congratulations to both Susan and Brett. I wish them a happy life together and wanted to welcome Brett to my crazy family.

Returning to the United States

travelIn a few hours Sergio and I board a plane to fly back to the United States.  I will miss my time in Brazil.  This year’s trip started on a sad note with the passing of Sergio’s father, but the death was also a huge release and relief of pent up stress, grief and many other feelings.  Despite the ominous conditions facing the family, the holiday was surprisingly cheerful and healing for Sergio, his Mom and the family at large.  The final few days spent alone together in Sao Paulo have been incredibly relaxing.  While I’m not looking forward to being crammed into the tiny United Airlines seats or the cold weather that awaits us, I am looking forward to returning home and feel refreshed.
