This past weekend we traveled down to Galveston to visit our nephew Kyle who’s serving in the U.S. Coast Guard. After spending about a year and a half at a duty station in south Florida, he’s been stationed in Galveston for nearly four years and he recently put in for another year there. The reason: Alyssa.
You may think us biased because he is our nephew, but Kyle is a really wonderful young man, and now he’s got a cute, sweet girlfriend. Alyssa finished culinary school recently, worked in a bakery as her first job after school, and is now part of a team opening a new restaurant in a hotel a bit north of Houston next month. According to Kyle, she’s a great pastry chef! We shared five meals with Kyle & Alyssa during our 2-1/2 day stay there, and lots of delicious Gulf [of Mexico] seafood was enjoyed by all! Yummy deserts, too!!
We are pleased to report back to the family that Alyssa is a really terrific young lady. It’s clear she and Kyle are very happy together and we’re all very happy for both of them.
K & A — We hope you can join us on the road in the near future – there’s always room in Charley for you! xoxo –AL&F
