“Hello”…. from the other side

Hi! I wanted to send out a little update on my life over on the other side of the world. πŸ™‚
Things are going well and we had a wonderful visit to TX to see my family over Thanksgiving. We also enjoyed some time in NYC as well. It was Wissam’s first time to NYC and he loved it! I also loved getting to see him enjoy one of my favorite cities for the first time. We spent some wonderful time exploring Central Park, wandering in Times Square, eating wonderful food, experiencing a Broadway show and meandering through the city by subway like experts. πŸ˜‰

My parents have a lovely new home in TX and we enjoyed getting to see it and spending some good time with my family. We were able to rest some, do some shopping and Wissam got to see a real TX rodeo, which was quite the experience! Maybe it’s time to get him some cowboy boots! We also loved getting to eat lots of Mexican food and we can’t forget the froyo!! πŸ˜‰

Rodeo!

While I was in TX I got to visit my best friend and see her new little baby girl who is so precious!! It was such a fun time to visit with dear friends.

Christmas was spent in Lebanon and it was beautiful! We went to see some beautiful decorations in Byblos and it was a wonderful season! I love Christmas in Lebanon. There is so much joy and the decorations everywhere are so beautiful!

Christmas Eve we spent time with family and some special friends. We played games, enjoyed a lovely meal all together and had a gift exchange. I am so grateful for the most important gift of Eternal Life and a personal relationship with my Lord.

Our little apartment is coming along nicely and we are really loving it! We finished our bar area and it really adds a lot! We also just added some carpets and they make it cozy and much warmer. πŸ™‚ We have had some really cold days so far this winter and a little bit of snow. I hope we will have more because it’s so beautiful when it snows here.

We are really enjoying our time together and I am so grateful that I married my best friend. It’s so much fun just to be with him and enjoy talking and sharing our dreams for the future together. I am so thankful each day that God brought us together and I am excited for what He is doing in our lives.
