It's been awhile since I've posted brcause I've been living a nomadic life. Mid December we moved out of our apartment. We stayed with friends (Pete and Stephanie) for 4 days. Then we went to North Dakota for 2 weeks. Now we're back in the Springs, staying with friends Brian and Melissa. On the 17th of Jan. we leave for Brazil and stay with Renato's parents for an unknown amount of time. So needless to say, we have been living out of suitcases since mid-December and will continue to live out of them for awhile yet.
While in ND we were able to see family and friends and say goodbye. Here in the Springs, we had a farewell party and got to see lots of friends. So we are having a good time and enjoying life here in the States while we can. The funny thing is, I haven't even cried yet. CRAZY!!!! I think it's because it feels like I'm just saying "See ya later" to people, which is true. We plan on coming back at least once a year. And the friends we've made have meant so much to us, we have a deep bond that time and distance don't hinder. I have a week left in the states and I'm planning on eating as much Mexican food as possible before we leave. :)
