Four years... that's how long it's been since I was last here. I don't think I fully realized it until I walked through the front door. Funny isn't it, how places stay the same in your mind, and in reality, nothing ever stops changing?

I'm anxious, to see how this trip goes, I want it to be such an awesome experience, because who knows the next time I get to be back here? But if I learned one thing in this life, it's that the best moments are never planned, and your favorite memories are the unexpected little things.

Everything is beautiful: the babies, the tias, the mountains, my group - I love it all. There will always be a little piece of my heart that belongs here.

Today we went grocery shopping (always interesting) and went walking to the bread store. Ecuadorian bread is the best! Tomorrow is our first full day with the babies!!
Once we get our schedule going I'm sure I'll have some great stories for all of you!
Much love from South America!


  1. praying for a lovely time in one of your "homes" and so glad that you got to go back there after such time. missing you!

  2. I knew you were in Ecuador, but I left a stupid message on your phone...I pray you have an amazing trip! You always have such beautiful words to share, cant wait to hear all the stories!
