The other morning, Phillip and I decided to take a little date and go out for breakfast and coffee. We left Kimberly in charge of our children and left her our cellphone numbers in case she needed us, and we walked just a couple blocks away to a bakery.
~Phillip and I as were leaving for our date...pardon our "Square Eyes" (as my brother-in-law Michael calls someones' eyes when they have just awakened. =)
~My sweetheart and I.~
~Our fun date at the little bakery. We had such a nice time just relaxing and chatting together. The food was yummy too.
While on our date I asked Phillip to tell me his 5 favorite things about Colombia, and I also asked him to name some of his favorite memories of the 3 years our family has been here. Then I told him my answers. Some of my favorite things about Colombia are as follows:
The beautiful Andes Mountains
The Colombian people
The coffee and yummy food
The Dear caring Colombian friends that God has placed in our lives. They love us like their family and we do them too.
Their custom of bringing a little gift to ones' home when visiting.
And their custom of always serving their visiting guests something to eat and drink when they are in their home.

~The other Thursday Phillip was in a taxi headed to church when a guy passed selling roses. Phillip asked the taxi driver to make sure he had heard the price right...for the price was UNBELIEVABLE!! He had heard right and He got me 2 dozen beautiful red roses for about 90 CENTS!!!! That is one of the perks of living in Colombia! =)
