This is our story of immigration struggles and moving to Mexico so our family can be together. Thanks for stopping by and hope you enjoy!

One week in and doing great!

I just want to say i feel like i am adjusting really well. I know it is still new and there will be a  lot of ups and downs, but for now i feel good. I miss my friends and family, but i have already made some friends (shocking for me, i am super socially awkward) and Cesar has enough family to go around.

I came prepared with my Xanax and have not needed it once, have not even come close to having an anxiety attack. Heck if things stay like this for awhile i may consider lowering my dose or going off of my daily anxiety meds that i have been on the past year.

I love sleeping in...well i get up around 7am and that for me is sleeping in, even though it is almost 2hrs earlier than anyone else is up. Gives me time to check emails and such and also now i have a walking buddy for the mornings. The town has a really nice paved walking trail, in walking distance from where we are.

It may take awhile to get used to the bugs, and the heat, and not flushing toilet paper. When you pass someone on the street they say "goodbye" instead of "hello" The streets are noisy all night and i can't buy my favorite treats at the store. Dogs run loose and i am nervous around stray dogs....but those things don't matter. I am with my husband and our son and living out what i believe to be God's plan and will for our lives.

Good for you!
Hi just wanted to say thanks for also following me on my journey!
Did you spend any time in mexico before you moved there to see how the lifestyle worked? When my fiance got deported in May I spent two weeks there and kinda got a feel for what I would be getting myself into. It is kind of scary but exciting at the same time.

Felicidades! Glad things are starting off on the right foot.

Lisa, i visited 6 times in the past year and a half, the longest visit being about 4 weeks. So i had a good idea what i was getting into.

congratulations!!! Glad to hear that you're doing well!

Thats good! I will be going for my second time the last week of December for 3 weeks so that will be my longest trip before actually moving there. But it is just exciting and feels like the right thing. I am happy for you, and I just pray that everything turns out well on my end also!!

Lisa, i tried to comment on your blog, but comments are restricted to team members. Just curious where in the US you are now and where you plan to move?

Hi Rebecca, Sorry I did not know I had that lock on my comments. Still trying to get used to all the blogging business so I think the lock is off now. I am currently in Riverside, CA. MY fiance's family lives in La Barca, Jalisco, so that is our next stop. It is about 2 hours away from Guadalajara.
