Asi es la vida ~

a beautiful day it was last Sunday. 
we went to the flea market.
I came home with a bag of roasted hot peppers
Beli came home with the Big Red Dog (Clifford)

and Hubby found tools.

~Life is good.

sometimes I want to complain, then bite my tongue and internalize my thoughts
just feeling a bit run down with routine
 looking forward to spending time with my family in Iowa next week
trying to be present
and embrace each moment,
as we all know, life never goes according to plan
We found out on Sunday, after returning from the market,
that my Father-in-law had open heart surgery last week (being overseas, family didn't want us worrying)
he is recovering and doing well
in fact he was released today.
My Mother-in-law was hoping to come and visit us next month
but right now the most important thing is that she stays and helps my Father-in-law recover.
Like Hubby said, it doesn't seem real that this happened.
He feels bad that he is so far away from his family but grateful that his Dad is in stable condition
yet one can't stop worrying.

Beli and I will travel to Iowa on the 13th and celebrate her birthday there.
She is growing up so fast!

  2. I'm glad to hear that your father-in-law is doing well. What a surprise to have to hear news like that AFTER the fact, huh?! O_O But hearing it beforehand might have been more stressful considering the distance. So, maybe the family knew best this time...Sending good thoughts....and sending admiration to Beli for her sense of style! :-) What girl wouldn't wanna wear a toole skirt and 'whatever else she felt like putting on' when she was out for a day of having a good time?! ^_^ You Go, Beli!!

  3. Best wishes for your father-in-law's recovery. Your photos are great, Elisa!! We'll be eating bunny for Easter!!

  4. such pretty colorful pictures!! it looks like summer on your end. and I am sorry for the worrying news. hope everything turns out for the best :)
