Happy Wednesday! 

Well it's another gloomy day in Texas, I feel like I say that in every other post! But if we're being honest here I rather have rain than 100 degree weather, well except if we're going to the beach! haha I spent the day running errands and working on some blogging things! Also Coffee With Rosa turned ONE! A year ago I decided to re launch my blog and just do the dang thing! It's been a dream of mine to do my blog and to actually take it serious, and just go for it. I'm not going to lie it's been hard and there are soo many bloggers out there but I personally think there's room for everyone! 

Today on my way to Wal-Mart I felt this "homesick" feeling. I'm sure we've all felt it before. In that moment I craved to be home, I was almost in tears because I miss my family, I miss seeing familiar faces and just being home. Texas has been my new home for almost 3 years now, wow I can't even believe it's been that long already. And Texas is great don't get me wrong! I've made new friends, Julian has also made new friends, so life here hasn't been too bad. 

In a way I feel like an awful wife & mother because my new home is here, my family is here. And I am so grateful for this place we get to call our new home. But it's okay to feel homesick right? I come from a very small family, my mom, dad & sister. It has always been just us four. Now that I look back I realize how AMAZING my parents are. And they are even greater grandparents. I thought we were spoiled but our kids...way worst! It's funny how as you grow older you realize so many things, you start to appreciate the little things, things that you didn't fully appreciate when you were younger. 

I spend waaay too much time thinking what would my sister and I be doing if I lived closer to home. In my mind I imagine us going to Target, picking up some Starbucks, bringing our kids along and taking them to the park after and ending the day with a yummy dinner. Of course with one or a hundred tantrums from our kids haha. 

Now that I know how to cook a little more, I regret the days my mom & dad would come home from work, exhausted, and I wouldn't have dinner ready for them. Why? Because I was just lazy. Because other things were priority. If I could just go back in time. I feel like my video calls to my parents have decreased over time. Some of it has to do with the fact that my mom can pick up on any & every emotion in me, mothers instinct. So if I call her on the days where I'm mentally & emotionally not okay (there's been a lot of those days) she'll be worried half to death for the next 3 months. 

I miss the days where we'd head to Wilmington early Saturday morning, stop by Mcdonalds for some breakfast, head to the beach, do some shopping, and finally have dinner at Golden Coral (moms favorite) or a taqueria (dads favorite). I miss those days. 

I could go on and on about all the things I miss. But I'm sure you get the point by now. I just miss home. I enjoy doing these "Coffee Talk" posts because I can just spill whats on my mind or in my heart to you! I genuinely love this community! And the unconditional support you guys give me. 

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and for continuing to support my blog! It truly means the world to me. 

Also don't forget you can comment at the end of this post and share feedback or whatever you'd like! I don't want to fully depend on Instagram or Facebook to have a virtual connection with y'all so I also want to interact with y'all on my blog!  

I hope you have a wonderful day!
