It's been a long and extremely worthwhile time: sometimes funny, sometimes exhausting; yet all this time, we have felt a very lucky couple.
A favourite Spanish writer of mine, Antonio Gala, says often that one of the main virtues of people in Andalucía is their wisdom to reduce their needs, in order to feel fulfilled with few things.
I personally agree with that. Even if you intend to accomplish further things in life, the value of every moment has to be enjoyed. The small things. During all these years, with the highs and lows, the good and bad, we tried to keep the perspective and focus on the truly important things. I think we succeeded. Alba, Manuel, Lucía and Irene helped a lot for doing it.
Happiness is not getting everything you dream about; rather, it is to enjoy every second, realizing about its value.
