Day 15: Friends and Fun
One of the things we made sure to tell our family and friends was that they were welcome to come visit us as we traveled. Of course, we meant it sincerely, but wondered if anyone would actually be able to make the trip to Playa del Carmen. We know life is busy, and schedules are packed.
So…imagine our surprise when we had not one…but TWO separate visits from dear friends! On Sunday afternoon (yesterday), our friend Linda, also from Chicago, met us at a restaurant close by. We finally got to introduce our husbands to each other, and shared a lot of great conversation and laughs over some delicious pizza!
Today brought another great surprise. We were thrilled to find out that friends we had not seen for three years were coming to visit us in Playa! It’s hard to express the joy we felt at being able to see loved ones while living so far away from “home”.
Visiting with Federico and Rene warmed and encouraged our hearts and it was so exciting to be able to introduce them to our children. To Linda and Scottie, Federico, and Rene…thank you for making time for us. What a memorable time together!
