Life: A Light Blog Post

I don’t know how it happened, I guess time kept turning or something, but we have now been in the Dominican Republic for 6 months. It feels like home. We have our routines. We know where to go.

I think that’s part of the reason why we haven’t blogged in a while. Everything seems normal now and who wants to write about normal, let alone read about normal? I’m grateful for normal.

November and December were jam-packed with one special date after another— Alex’s birthday, our anniversary, my birthday, Christmas, and New Year’s. We were able to spend all of those days together and, some of them, with my side of the family. What a huge blessing!

Along with all the celebrations, we got a girl kitty to be our big boy’s little sister. Her name is Jules and we absolutely love her. Those two keep us laughing.



You know how when it’s winter you wish there was at least one warm day, so that you could stop hibernating? Let me tell you something, all of our days are relatively warm (62 degrees Fahrenheit being the coldest I’ve seen during the night), and we’re still hibernating.

We’re looking forward to having some really dear friends come visit us during this first part of the year! Let us know if you’re coming to visit too. We’d love to have you!

In God’s grip,

Alex + Leslie
