Te Quiero Mucho, Guatemala

Well, this is this last blog from Guate. Can you believe it's even happening? Can I? No. Not at all. My bags have been packed, my goodbyes have been said, and I have about a 2-hour window for a nap before I leave for the airport. Ugh. Tomorrow is going to be a rough day.

So, in just a last few words before I hit the hay:

I know that among my loyal blog followers, my description of this place and these people and this year is practically scripture, hah. I tell you about the mundane and the important, and you feel like you're living it with me. But here's the thing -- no blog could achieve that. To understand this year, to really get it, you have to have lived it.

But do take my word on it: lived it we did. I can't count the number of risks and adventures and leaps of faith I took this year. We squeezed every moment for what it was worth.

I have laughed so much and so hard this year -- with kids, with friends, at myself. I don't remember the last time I laughed this much.

And I have loved so so so so much this year. To a million different people and places.

So from the bottom of my heart, thank you to everyone who followed along these past 13 months. I have no idea what comes next, but I'll keep you updated.

And to Guatemala, cuidate. Te voy a extrañar, y te quiero un montón.
