we're back

Well, it's back to the real world for the Acevedo family. We had an amazing vacation in Miami and I certainly enjoyed every second. I loved spending time with family and friends, enjoying some hot weather, meeting my new nephew. I have to be honest and say that it was really difficult for me to get on that plane and fly back to Denver. Don't get me wrong, I love Denver, but there's no place like home. If I can go further with my honesty, I have to say, I'm struggling. I was spoiled in Miami. I had so much help with the baby between my parents, grandmother, sisters, in-laws, friends... I was also able to spend every second of every day with my best friend, my amazing husband. We had a lot of fun just vegging out, meeting up with friends, introducing Liam to our loved ones.

Now we're back. I missed our cozy little house. I missed Jaxon. I missed the cool air of Denver. I missed our friends here. And it's nice to be back...but I also miss my family and friends back in Miami. I miss being surrounded by the most important people in my life everyday. I miss la fritanga. I miss sitting outside with Liam looking at the leaves and flowers on the trees. I miss stroller walks with Alex as we discuss our hopes and dreams. I miss all the adorable babies I met and their wonderful parents.

So I'm struggling. I'm lonely. I'm tired. I'm bored. I know God is good through all of this. He sustains me. He has a plan for my life. I trust Him. And I'm looking to Him for comfort and guidance. I know that at the end of the day, He is my everything and He is all I need. But I sure would like to hug my Abuelita right now and eat some gallo pinto as Liam plays with his best bud, Ayden. :-)
