  1. Hi, I have been visiting your blog. Certainly produces envy view the photos, the scenery and not being there¡Congratulations for your work! I invite you to visit my blog about literature, philosophy and films:

    Greetings from Santa Marta, Colombia

  2. What a great year it has been for you! We miss you terribly, but are so proud of you!

  3. It reminds me of how last week, I had to think for a second about what I did for my birthday last year, then I was like "Oh! We had a going away party for Charity!" quickly followed by "Holy crap, she's been gone for a whole year now." I'm not entirely sure what relevance that has to anything, but 'ofa lahi atu! : )
