Time Flies

Boy how time does fly!

My last post was since 2014 and we are now in 2017. Somehow, life gets hectic and things get left unattended and since my blog was created as a way to just share a little something about myself and sometimes about my family, I neglected it for other things. In the past two years a lot has happened to my little family - husband, son and me.

My son is now four and a half years old! Imagine that! I've been a mama for 4 years already. I still fondly remember my days in Brazil with just my hubby and me enjoying life one day at a time. The saying "time sure does fly" is so true! Fast forward to four years later and we are once more back in Houston. Micah is growing up to be a wonderful, little energetic bundle of pure love and joy. He has us on the go with little time left to recover from our hectic days but I won't have it any other way.

Anyways, over the last two years we moved from Houston, back to Trinidad and then back to Houston. I just read my blog profile that says there's no place like home and I can't wait to move back to Trinidad to live. I am sorry to say that this is no longer true. Don't get me wrong. The year I spent in Trinidad was lovely. We got to spend time with family and friends, create memories and reconnect with people. However, the crime that is happening in our beloved country is scary and downright atrocious. I shudder to think what it will be like for my son growing up in that environment and I hope and pray that things change soon even though nothing points to that happening under the present government. My husband is determined to one day go back home and settle down but I am less inclined to readily agree with that unless the environment changes.

Back to the present. We are now in Trump country .... 2017 seems to have started off with some resemblence of happenings from 2016. So much hate and troubles that seems to have leaked over into 2017 but let's hope that somehow people start loving one another again and stop this shit! Enough is enough. We have become such a destructive society that we no longer seem to know where we are headed. I try to stay positive, to enjoy the time with my family and continue to make our memories.

I am excited for this year because my best friend Samantha is getting married. I am her maid of honour and even though I suck at that, I am super excited for her. She found a really great guy and I wish them all the best. So I am excited to go home for that wedding. Other things to look forward to are the family vacations we have planned. The unknown for this year will be where we might get moved to next.

Okay I think I will start posting more pictures and find topics to share. Let me just end by saying, stay positive people... hate less, love more. God knows we need more love.

Have a good night,
Love Leandra
