I was recently asked if I would do this whole, "move to Mexico" thing again.

My answer, yes*.

*I'm sure I could drone on and on about how, "everyone should try something new" and it's been the "best thing that's ever happened to me," but that's annoying. The fact of the matter is, it has worked so far. And, it's worked pretty well.

I like where I am in my life right now. (I like even being able to say that.) I love being so close to my siblings. I'm at the point where I don't see myself every living apart from them. I like how happy my husband is here. He wakes up and smiles. I like the sun. (I'm solar-powered, according to C.) And I like the ocean.

I like how people look out for one another here. The lines between "work associates" and "family" are starting to blur.

I miss T-town, but at this point, this most southern place on the Baja peninsula is becoming our home.

Yes, there have been moments/days when being here has been hard. And, I'm sure those moments/days will continue to plague me. But, I'm thinking that's just the way it goes.

I'm very pleased (and still shocked) at where we've ended up. However, right now? I'm in a good place. We're in a good place.


It has been a long week.
You know what I'm talking about.
The kind of week where you have a headache for 3 days in a row.
The kind of week where when you get off work, you're exhausted.
The kind of week where you need alone time.
I for one, am very pleased the work week is coming to a close.


What IS up, Mexico?

So, I've been a subscriber to TIME magazine for about 2 months now. I've actually received THREE of my WEEKLY magazines. The other ones have been apprehended, accosted and commandeered.


(yeah, I'm about 2 more magazines from swearing. TOTALLY annoying.)


Something very exciting happend to me this weekend...

...I saw my FIRST whale!

Yup, ok. I just saw the tail, but still - I got the chills. It's so cool.

C. and I were in the pool this weekend and he was staring out into the ocean. And wah-la, he saw a particularly playful whale tooling about. We watched her (I prefer to think it was a her) for about a half hour. Jumping around and playing. It was SO cool.


Note: the image above is not said whale's tail. Just a likeness used for dramatic effect.
