V is for Vivir

Vivir is to live in Spanish. Sometimes life throws you curve balls when you least expect it. It's a journey full of hardships and trials, but also fun adventures.  Moving to Guatemala was one of those curve balls that was thrown at us. It wasn't easy picking up and leaving everything we knew behind and packing only 2 large suitcases and 2 carryon's as our only belongings, but it's been a ride that we have absolutely loved despite the struggles we have faced. 

We've met incredible people, we are learning more and more Spanish everyday, I've learned to do laundry by hand and we've learned to just do with what we have and enjoy the simple things in life. There are so many more things that we've learned through our journey through life that has helped us grow. It's been an amazing ride so far. Even though the lord threw us a curve ball in coming to Guatemala, it's been one of the best experiences that I've ever had in my life!
