As I am packing out and wrapping up our adventure in Ecuador I received beautiful Christmas ornaments from Rita in England! I am sitting in the echoing house and thinking the three beautiful ornaments I have received from dear friends from MKB. I know our Christmas tree will have something special when we arrive in the US.

  1. This was such a fun swap to do! As we’re an ocean away from my family I get a little lonely, especially at Christmas. I felt such a warm feeling receiving beautiful gifts from around the world, from families who understand.

    Merry Christmas to all!
    Feliz Navidad
