We’ll Be Warm Soon

  We’re heading out in the morning – and are excited to start on this next chapter in our Mexican adventure. Even though we’ve always interviewed the places we’ve visited as potential new homes, for some reason this trip feels a lot more serious. It’s probably because of our level of commitment as well as Paul’s impending retirement. We’ll be in Mazatlan for a week and then Queretaro for another.

Of course the new MP3 player will be a treat...

  I thought about doing a post yesterday but I loved that picture of Seattle and didn’t want to see it moved lower on the page…isn’t that dumb? What a beautiful day that was, though. As we become more and more immersed in planning our move, the blogs I read daily become more and more important to me. I just want to know what people are thinking and doing so much – I guess to try to project what I...
