A year of growth and new beginnings

I wanted to say that 2007 is going to be a year of growth and new beginnings.

John and I are entering our seventh year together and our fourth our married happily. We have traveled together all over the USA and now ready for Mexico. Our house, Castillo de la Arena (Sand Castle), in Playa Adriana Baja Mexico is getting started - VERY exciting! We have a few trips planned this year; Canada with Liamarie during summer break and Guadalajara Mexico with our friend Roger. And in between growing our business and building our home "I love you John, my friend, lover and partner in crime. We have great goals to tackle and I will pull them down with both hand and make you proud to me." - to John from Rachel

My parents are retiring to the sun and sand of San Felipe Mexico; the ground braking on their property is happening as you read this; it will be a race of who finishes first us or them. We will be watching the building process for them, taking pictures and making sure all the little things get done. "I am proud to have you two as parents; we have grown together to be stronger family with out killing each other. Ha!Ha! Thank you and I see a good 2007 with a big step towards the sand between your toes." - to Mom and Dad from Rachel

Liamarie is becoming and beautiful young lady that we love very much. I see her swimming like a dolphin on the swim team, singing like a angle in chorus, and looking good with blue or red hair doing it this year. "Be strong and be the best that you can be!" - to my Liamarie from your Rachel :)
Troy is working on a lobster boat at the Channel Islands loving every minute of it. I remember the times John and I spent waking up on the sail boat watching the sun come up over California and hearing the birds and sea loins as we ate breakfast; who couldn't love that? He drove his new truck though pea soup fog to spend Christmas with us, The first time all of us together for the holidays; surprising his sis and grandma - The Best Christmas ever! "Enjoy every minute of it and remember that we love you - we are just a phone call away." - to Troy from Rachel.

Please check we us from time to time and let us know what you and our friends/family are up to during this promising new year of 2007.
