Bienvenidos Atlanta!!

I'm not sure if it was the time difference or not...but the days in El Salvador were LONG! This was a good thing. I remember being at the beach or in the pool and it felt like 5:00. Thinking we should get ready for our dinner reservations, I would check the time and was always baffled that it was only 1 or 2 o'clock. Things moved slowly, time moved slowly, people moved slowly. The last month of school for me was fucking ridiculous a little busy so I soaked up the El Salvadorian pace as much as possible. No where to be at a specific time...no watch..no phone...just peace.

Mi mejor amigo La boda de

The day of the wedding arrived and by now, SJ and I were totally ready for the journey. We had made contact with the outside world, got a general idea of where to meet up with Neal, go the times, and were out the door in record time.

I was literally a scared ball of nerves and felt so out of control. I kept telling SB that had I taken this trip with anyone else...I may have had a mental breakdown! Somehow...that man bring out a patient and level headed Jess. The next day was Thursday. Jueves. (I do remember some things from High School!) We started the day off with a massage on the beach. It was JUST what my body needed after…

EL SALBADOOOOR!!!

[caption id="" align="alignright" width="210" caption="The map that saved our lives!"][/caption] When Neal asked us to come to his and Jude's wedding, I wasn't sure that an excursion to another country would fit within the things we were going to be able to do this year. However, after much deliberating, Jess and I decided to do it. So we budgeted out the next few months and booked the trip. The events that followed were something I will never forget. :) The morning of the trip sprang on us faster than we thought but we were ready. Chase was dropped off with his dad and we hit up the airport. We had…
