I love to eat dinner at home with my family

I love to eat dinner at home with my family.

I love to share a meal at home. I love chatting with the family about the day, sometimes about serious things and oftentimes about silly things.

I love to laugh together with the family at the table. We are in our own world, in our own cocoon, protected from the outside world where we can speak freely and be ourselves with each other.

I enjoy this time because I know sooner or later our kids will come to a point where they will no longer be at home. They will have their own lives with their own families. They will then experience the happiness that I feel now as a parent.

Time flies and I always need to remind myself to appreciate these special moments.

I love to go out together with my family

I love to go out together with my family.

I love it whether it be a short trip or a long trip.

I love the short errand trips to the supermarket where we sometimes play in the aisles of the supermarket, sometimes getting involved in impromptu games of tag or hide and seek.

Sometimes my girls and I get to hearing a song in the store and start singing it. Sometimes we’ll dance in the aisles. We have been to Latin American grocery stores where salsa and merengue  are playing and we’ll do a quick dance in the aisles.

Sometimes we may go to a general store like Wal-Mart or Target and find the pool noodles or foam swords and play out a fighting scene. I love the moments.

I also love the moments in the car when we are listening to music (and if I’m driving, it’s normally electronica or house) we hear a song that we all start singing and dancing to.

I love to go out together with my family!

I love Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

I love Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

I love the rawness of it. I love that it is like a chess match. Any change of position can change a match for either opponent.

I love to practice Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. I love the challenge of going against an opponent and trying my best to defend against submissions. I love escaping potential submissions.

I love going on offense and trying to defeat opponents.

I love Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

I love to eat food from other countries

I love to eat food from other countries.mofongo

I love to try new foods that I have never tasted before. I love to try out of the ordinary dishes or dishes with interesting ingredients.

I love tasting new flavors. I love when we go out as a family and all get something different. I enjoy tasting the different foods that everyone else gets.

I love going to restaurants whose owners are from different countries. I love when they bring their own unique style to the food.

If I can eat the food from another country in that country itself, it’s even better!

I love to feel the wind with my hand as I drive in the highway with the window open

I love to feel the wind with my hand as I drive in the highway with the window open.

I love to feel the power of the wind on my hand. I love to make the motion of a worm and feel the wind automatically pushing my hand up and down.

I love to feel the wind between my fingers. It’s liberating in a sense. It’s a natural hand dryer.

It feels pure.

I love to feel the wind with my hand as I drive in the highway with the window open!

I love to take selfies with my family

I love to take selfies with my family.

I love to record those memories. Those priceless moments in time that I will never have with them at that precise age. I love the smiles on their faces.

I love to look back at those older pictures and be happy because of the moments we shared.

I love to take selfies with my family!

I love to get to know others personally

I love to get to know others personally.

I love to know what drives others. I love to know about their passions. I love to know where they come from and where they want to go.

I love when they share details about their family. I get a real appreciation for them. I get to understand them better and can relate with them at a deeper level.

I love to get to know others personally!
