In a few days i will be turning 35... Last few days have been rough, this will be my 2nd birthday without my dad.... Ive been going thru a lot in my life lately and feel like ive lost a large piece of myself. Honestly, i thought i was a lot stronger then I am. I wish i could call him and hear his voice and tell me "con animo". Tough to lose a best friend and hero. This years, like lasts years birthday shot will be dedicated to him... Because without him i wouldn't be who i am today. Love you and miss you so much pops.
It has been a amazing trip overall... This is the first trip i have taken with my mom as a adult, and has been the first vacation for her since my dad passed away. I was worried about it at first, I wanted to make sure she felt included in everything since she only speaks Spanish. She told me the other day she needs to stop laughing cause her jaw hurts so bad... This was music to my ears. Watching her have first experiences have been amazing. Lindsay walked with her on the beach (first time), my cousin took her into the water (first time), she got to see where my grandpa worked in Santa Monica... So many first to count. Im blessed to have this experience with her. ·
