Friends! We have big news (which isn’t really new, I am just WAY behind on blog posts hahaha)! We got a new puppy! She is a sable German Shepherd who’s parents are both military trained GSDs…so she was basically born to be badass! We named her Bea, which sounds like the German word for bear… Continue reading And Bea Makes Four!
Have you ever heard of a cenote? They are these magical sinkholes here in the Yucatan Peninsula that were formed by the meteor that killed the dinosaurs. They are filled with freshwater and connected through hundreds of underground rivers. There are NO above ground rivers in this part of Mexico! I had never heard of… Continue reading I Must See ALL the Cenotes!!!
If you know my husband, Seb, and I, you know FOOD IS LIFE! We love to cook and we love to eat and drink well. Holidays are special times for us, even if it is just he and I celebrating with eachother! Since we were doing just that this year for Thanksgiving, we decided to… Continue reading A Rockin’ Moroccan Thanksgiving!
A Long Awaited Visit Sebastian and I got married in my parents’ back yard two years ago in August. It was the most beautiful wedding (I’m gonna toot my own horn here! lol). Our family and friends gathered and danced and drank and ate yummy BBQ until 2am! Woop! But then, in September 2015, we… Continue reading Getting to Know Mexico
FHave you ever lived in a place where things just keep going wrong for you? We absolutely loved Chile, but we could not catch a break there! Our computer cables kept dying so Seb couldn’t work, no one had replacement cables locally, we couldn’t order new cables online–Chilean sites don’t allow foreign credit cards and… Continue reading Journey to Mexico: Part II
-or- How to Travel Internationally With a Big German Shepherd and Come Within Inches of Losing Your Mind Part I I’m just gonna come out and say it…moving from Southern Chile to the Yucatan Peninsula with our dog was a nightmare. I’ve never flown with a pet before so I’m not sure if what we… Continue reading Journey to Mexico
SURPRISE! We moved to Mexico! And it only took me 4 months to post about it! haha…so that’s why we were so busy around Christmas time in Castro, and we’ve been busy here since we arrived! While we are sad to say goodbye to Chile, we realized it was just not where we were supposed to… Continue reading Hola! From Mexico!
I know this is a little late, but we are pretty busy around here these days! (More to come on why in a later post). Christmas has come and gone once again. I remember when I was little not being able to sleep on Christmas Eve, getting up at 4:30 or so, and racing to… Continue reading Christmas Surprise in Castro!
Oh hey there…that’s right I still have a blog! Let’s just start off by letting you know…things for our computers have been kind of rough this year. Seb’s charging cable first started dying right when we got to Chile last year and it took about 5 weeks for the new one to get here. So… Continue reading The Market of Castro, Chiloe
RAIN, OUR HOUSE, AND THE NEIGHBORHOODS OF CASTRO! Life in Winter on the Isla de Chiloe is much much rainier than I imagined! I’ve lived in Seattle and then we were in Vietnam for 1.5 years–these places are famous for their rain. Vietnam even goes through a Monsoon Season! Yet nothing compares to this Chilote… Continue reading Lluvia, Nuestra Casa, y Los Barrios de Castro!
