It's been more than one year since my wife and I got married and moved to the United States. And about 11 months ago, we moved to Minnesota. We come from the small island of Puerto Rico. Although Puerto Rico houses around four million inhabitants, it doesn't matter where in the island you are, you are always at less than four hours from anybody else. So there is always a lot of family stuff happening. Always a birthday, a party, or just a good dinner to attend to.
Here in Minnesota, we have no relatives for miles (the closest live in New York). So after one year of being away, you kind of start missing them (even your sisters!). That is why we have turned our second room into a half guest room. And we're having a lot of people over this summer. My two younger sisters came for a week. My mother- and brother-in-law are coming tomorrow for two weeks. The day after they leave, we will be hosting a Japanese student for three weeks. After she leaves (they just keep coming!) we will be hosting a Chinese student for one or two weeks.
We will be a lot busier with more people in the house, but it sure is fun. It is always a joy to live out that famous phrase: "Mi casa es tu casa" (my house is your house). Hopefully I can extend some of that to this blog. I hope my readers can feel at home (and feel free to comment!). Thanks for all of your visits. They always make my day!
