My heart is still smiling from last night's FaceTime chat with my niece, Juliana. She sang me a song, told me she missed me and even called out to her uncle Joe. I literally melt every time she says "Hiii tteee-aahhh" (tia, meaning aunt in Spanish). I miss her and Isabella so much but at least I have photos and memories like this one from when I was home in July. It's so hard to be away from them but thank god for Skype and Apple FaceTime that let me stay connected - definitely helps in not getting homesick (at least not too much).
Anyone else live far from home and rely on Skype or FaceTime to connect with family or friends?
