just visiting...

As Micaela would say "Hello Lovies"...

My name is Marisa and I am lucky enough to call Micaela my bestie. For those of you who don't know, we met almost a year ago (wow i can't believe it has been that long) when i found her in this great blogging community. She was going through a devastating breakup and her post just moved me. The way she expressed herself... so quick to accept her responsibility at the ending of what she thought was "THE" relationship. I commented immediately and from that day on, barely a day goes by that we don't communicate in one way or the other.

We couldn't be more different outwardly, I am a 33 year old wife and mother of a 13 year old daughter, tall, fair skinned. She is a 25 year old single (for now...more on this later) girl, petite, with beautiful olive skin... but from the beginning we got each other.

You know the "how did i live my life with out you" kind of connection. We have told our sad stories, seen our negative sides and love each other more for it. I can safely say in my 30 plus years of life I have never had a friendship like this one... and did I mention, we have never actually met in person?

So... It is an honor that she asked me to do a few guest posts while she is making the big move across the US to her new home in Virgina... (as of this morning they were on the road counting down 18 hours to go)

I know she is extremely grateful for all of your well wishes and kind comments about this big change in her life... moving from her beloved Texas away from her close knit family and a job she loved, to start a new life with her Darling Friend Max.
As she put in a previous post "I have to see about a boy"

.... and it is my privilege to tell all of you, that as of last night her Darling Friend, has become her Darling Fiance.. (insert...jumping up and down)



As you can imagine Micaela is beyond happy, and will be anxious to share all of the lovely details when she has safely arrived at her new home.

In the mean time I hope all of you will allow me to keep you company...

I am absolutely beyond excited for my sweet Mickey. Max is a great catch and I know how much they mean to one another. They balance each other out so well.

Mickey you will be a great wife, and one day a great mom as well. I know I haven't seen you much since I moved...but I miss you already... Even though we have both stayed busy over the last few years just knowing we could go get a drink together or if I needed someone to talk to you were there means the world to me.

I will miss your beautiful Lechuga smile...I love you sweetie! Give Max a hug for me!
