May Memories…

May is a big month for the Castillos! On May 25th Jose and I will celebrate our 10th Anniversary! We were married in St. Louis du Nord.
For the first time in a year – we will be visiting our beautiful friends and family there! May 18th is flag day and St. Louis is ready for a huge celebration! I’ll make sure I video the parade and all the dances! Our entire staff is going! 🙂
We are also getting ready to celebrate our one-year anniversary since moving to the Mole. I was reading through my blogs last May and reliving some of those precious moments. I came across this blog and it had me grin from ear to ear……
