The Best Thing I Brought Back from Chile

I didn’t bring them back, but they traveled the same day on a different airline, and I drove to a different airport to pick them up and took them to my family to surprise them.

Who? Thanks for asking. My Tia Monica is like my Chilean mom. She was our maid or nanny growing up since I was 2 years old; a very special lady to us. I always go to her house to eat some of my favorite dishes when I go to Chile. This time we ate and visited, and I gave her an invitation to my sister’s wedding, with her name on it. I meant it as a keepsake, but her daughter said, “You should go!” And lo and behold, the next day she had a passport and they were shopping for tickets. She and her granddaughter came and even though they were delayed a few hours we pulled off a very nice surprise for our family. The video says it all!
