Thinking of home! Happy 4th, Wherever you are:)

Leaving Texas is always bittersweet. After a recent trip home I am still thinking of family, friends & home. I'm happy to be there & while the time is precious, it ends all too fast. We enjoy every single moment we spend with our family. The only thing that makes returning to Mexico a little easier are the friendships we have established South of the Border. Life in the Ex Patriot community is fraught with moves & goodbyes but when we do establish friendships they have a certain resilience & strength. It's truly the Carpe Diem thought of seizing the moment & living in the present which helps me along.

What's not to miss? We always miss our girls mucho!

I can't imagine life here without friends to share the joys & those little daily aggravations! There are plenty of those but what is life without those grains of sand rubbing us the wrong way now & again? This 4th of July, I'll miss those fireworks & BBQ ~ living somewhere else on Independence day makes me wax poetic & think of home. So, keep those sparklers lit, the beer cold & the BBQ pits stoked! We're thinking of you! Happy 4th of July & God bless Old Glory & long may it wave!

Laughter & Friends!
