It's our 26 anniversary today. There has been plenty of sickness and health, tons of joy and a bit of sorrow, some richness and some poorness.
It has been an adventure; we've traveled, worked in exciting jobs, and now lived in a different country, a dream of mine since I was little. We see eye-to-eye on most of the important things in life, we challenge each other, and I couldn't have wished for a better partner to spend it with.
We couldn't get the boat today, but here is what we're doing on Tuesday to celebrate:
Mini pulled chipotle chicken tostadas served with pico de gallo, lettuce, cheese
Petit finger sandwiches
chive cream cheese, ham, olive garnish
homemade garlic humus, fresh homemade pickled beet, chive garnish
skewered seasonal fruits
Carl and I will not be drinking, in case anyone is worried; but all of our friends drink, so why deny them?
Now, on to the patio!
It is pretty much finished now; we wanted some sort of a fence between the patio by the guestroom and the driveway.
The pieces for the new patio mysteriously appear...
All painted a tasty chocolate brown
Later that same day...
Osvaldo and crew arrive to install it, including cousin Javier and Osvaldo's brother-in-law.
They finished this pretty quickly and I checked it out for reading possibilities.
No longer open to the street, you can barely see me in our private yard.
So now we have a little more privacy from the street.
Or a full view of whatever's going on- our choice!
Happy Anniversary, honey.
