Happiness in Pockets

In Honduras, vendors (especially women) create elaborate and beautifully-made aprons to help them take money and make change on the streets. I've always been in awe of those aprons. I mean think of all the possibilities for all those pockets!

Today, mom and I finally found a little shop in Juticalpa selling the aprons. I was so excited to finally have one of my very own. But I have to admit, when we put them on tonight I actually thought to myself, "What am I going to do with all these pockets?!?!

Milestones in Honduras

Just a few short days after beginning his new life in Honduras, Nick started a new journey as a teenager. We felt bold as celebrated this new era in our new home so far from everyone and everything familiar. (See the photos of this momentous occasion here!)

And this week we celebrated another milestone in Honduras as Nick begins a new great adventure―adulthood! And we can't imagine a better place to start than this place that had stolen our hearts. We've come full circle.

¡Feliz Cumplea├▒os, Nick!

This birthday was made extra-special because Nana was here to share it with us!

A special-ordered cheesecake for this special occasion!

May all your wishes come true!
