Airport Pick Up

After 4 long hours of waiting, downing Starbucks coffee, making a fool of myself in public with my baby cousin, girl talk with my aunt and a $17 parking fee (can someone say ridiculous?!) -- it was all well worth it.

The man above in the yellow shirt is my cousin. He and my dad use to ride down a hill on a sled through my grandparent's corn field in Cuba 40 years ago (and I'm pretty certain each and every time my grandpa kicked their asses!). I have a lot of family and they are pretty much all over place so it was a real treat to meet him today. He is here to stay and best of all -- can speak English! 

My favorite pic is the second one (:

I love my family. And after a long walk through the neighborhood chatting away with my love, embracing the beauty around and simply living in the moment -- my heart feel's so full.
