Just wanted to say Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! I am here in Melbourne Beach, Florida at my sister Rachelle's house and this is a shot of her "backyard"! It's a beautiful day here, a bit cold actually (colder than Cali!) but its getting warmer by the day. We leave bright and early in the morning to go on our cruise to the Bahamas and I think the adults are more excited than the kids! I know I won't be blogging when I am on the cruise so I thought I would post something quick before I left.
Its really nice to be here with my family.... it makes me realize just how much I miss being close to my parents. But I am most thankful for my family- who have been there with me through thick and thin, and there has been a lot of "thick" these past couple of years. I am also thankful for my friends, even though you are all scattered everywhere since Katrina hit... I know we don't get to talk everyday, but I still think about you guys often and hope you are all well.
Be safe and take care this Thanksgiving holiday. Love, Riza (Picture below is with my nephew Lucas)
