larisa is married to the sweetest guy named isom and together they created the future heart breaker, gabe.
cutest couple in the world.
larisa and i met through a local moms group in hawaii. i consider larisa family. something about raising babies at the same time in paradise makes for fast and easy friendships. sadly with navy life there's always the time when transfer orders come and you're saying good bye to the people that have become part of your life. i think for military families in particular the friends that you meet along the way become surrogate family members. they fill the void of being so far away from your real family. larisa and her family made our three years in hawaii very special. my child still refers to larisa as "auntie risa"...lol. even after leaving hawaii almost 5 years ago she's one of the people i've maintained a relationship with through facebook, email, texts and sometimes even words with friends...hahaha. the reason for that is that being friends with larisa is effortless. she makes staying in contact an easy thing. when life gets crazy and i'm behind in emails and phone calls i know i can shoot larisa a text or a facebook message and it's all good!
