So our anniversary was last week. On April 4th Mundo Emilia was born. Monica and I invited all of our family and friends and we had a double celebration. Why double? Because it was also Holy Week. And here in Guatemala there are many festivities during this great week. Guatemala is internationally known for  its processions and sawdust carpets. Make sure you click the images to read the posts about Holy Week in Guatemala.

So now that we are in the liturgical season of Easter, I remind you this words of saint John Paul II and wish you all a happy Resurrection Sunday.

“Do not abandon yourselves to despair. We are the Easter people and hallelujah is our song.”

Oh! And I almost forgot. Happy Anniversary Mundo Emilia!
