Ten years ago, the first date. Two became five. The love, remained strong…

14 Jun

Today my husband and I celebrate the 10th anniversary of our first date. Here we are, again at a beach town in Brazil, remembering the first moments. Now we’re joined by a lovely army: our 3 children.

The Miranda Family got to spend the Brazilian Valentine’s weekend at the Love Beach (Praia do Amor), in Pipa, Rio Grande do Norte. Kids had a  great time and the most deserving mom and dad got to enjoy each other’s company. Life has taught us a lot: we’ve been learning how to be more understanding, especially regarding little things, which in the beginning, used to upset us. Now, they just seem so small in the large scheme of things… We’re still learning…

{Note: the children’s nanny also came! (smart, right?)}

More details – about our relaxing weekend, the nearby beaches we got to visit – coming soon…

      Oh Janet! So good to hear from you!!! We miss you! We’re very happy for your 25 years, as well. Leonel and I will get there, eventually….

      We’re going back to the same beach town we met, 10 yrs ago… i just don’t know how we’ll manage the kiddos… (my parents, maybe?) 😮

      Let’s see… Hugs to Ed. Love from Recife, Raquel, Chico & the Little Mirandas

      Thank you, Becky! Coincidently, it was (Brazilian’s) Valentine’s Weekend, so, we could have a double-celebration… Who would’ve thought 10 yrs ago that it was possible to have a semi-romantic getaway with 2 toddlers and a baby?? 😮 Not very romantic, not a lot of sleep because of the kiddos, but still very much appreciated!

        Amazing how your definition of romantic changes with kids 🙂 I am so glad you had a great weekend! Well deserved.

          It absolutely changes, Becky! If you’re able to get some face time with your loved one, at the end of a busy day, having all the kids being attend to, healthy, fed, clean, quiet/sound asleep, and the opportunity to enjoy a glass of wine together, that’s heaven! 😮
