I thought I would start my first entry by explaining the title of my blog. Everyone seems to be getting busier and busier, working more and more, essentially putting work first. One of the things I love most about Guam is that "Friends and Family come first." We have the luxury of living on a small island and being able to get together easily. Since we are on a small island in the middle of the Pacific, our friends are our family and that is why we are all so close. This has become most important as we are there for each other during births, deaths, holidays, the good times and bad. Sometimes life on Guam can be challenging, but it all works out as long as you put your friends and family first.
