How wonderful it was to spend this Christmas with family. Emily’s dad and step mom visited and treated us to a week in paradise on the southern coast of Nicaragua, San Juan del Sur. We’ve never spent the 25th in such style! Great food and drinks, stunning sunsets and coastlines, sunning and beaching all day long…it really doesn’t get much better. The best part though, was to be able to spend it with these two loved ones. Through countless laughs and a few tears, gringo Spanish accents, card games (even if we didn’t know all the rules), and just time to catch up on life, we took advantage of every moment and had one of the best Christmases of our lifetimes.
