Picture This

Here´s a quick picture update of my new life here in Nicaragua.

 Our Christmas tree. Bianca decided we should put my statue of Mary in it so that it could be a ¨Mary¨ Christmas tree :)

 My very own room - I affectionately call my bed the taco bed (note how it sinks in the middle)

 Laguna de Apoyo where we spent three days on our first retreat together

 Homemade pierogis for Christmas Eve dinner - I definitely have a greater appreciation for making them in an assembly line!

 Our house

 My community mates in Ciudad Sandino with our dog Muñeco

All of the Jesuit Volunteers in Nicaragua on Christmas Eve

I know that wasn´t a lot of pictures, but I hope you enjoyed them! Merry Christmas to all!


  1. Looks amazing girl! :) Merry Christmas! Love and Prayers!

  2. Hi Adrienne,

    Never a dull moment. Sounds like you are getting immersed in the culture. Can't wait to hear how you ring in the new year.

    Love Ashley

  3. Hi Adrienne! So thankful for all the ways we are able to communicate! Pictures are definitely worth a thousand words! I love you and miss you, Mom

  4. Hey Adge! :)

    The house looks quite nice, and the view of Laguna de Apoyo is beautiful! So happy to hear that you are doing well!

    Also, thank you for the birthday wishes - it made my day! Love you!

  5. I love the pictures!!! Your community mates appear as cheerful and exciting as you. I am sure Grandma is very proud of you for keeping the pierogi making tradition. Your first retreat location looks very peaceful and relaxing. Wishing you joyful moments each day! Love and miss you! Auntie H
