I'm from Chicago, USA, working in Lima, Peru and travelling every once in a while.
Owen, Heidi and Nealanit are a lovely young family. Owen's enthusiasm for preparing the house for their holiday reunion with his parents was infectious and we did what we could to help him pull it all together. And we were delighted to be invited to Nealani's first birthday party. They are very attentive parents raising an adorable and typically active one-year old. We weren't able to give them nearly enough time to clean up some of the extra "enjoyment" a house receives from a toddler. A new group was moving in the same day so we had to ask Owen and Heidi to try to check out by noon. I appreciate that they recognized there were some things they didn't get to. We are thrilled that they will be neighbors and looking forward to staying in touch. We enjoyed hosting them and encourage others to do so. If you've ever been young parents they will bring back a lot of very fond memories.
