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!


Yay, tomorrow we are going to Guadalajara to meet up with our friends Issac and Amanda. Check out her blog Borders Aside. This will be our third time meeting up with them and we are very excited. I only wish they were closer (it is about 2.5 to 3 hrs to Guadalajara)

How did i meet them you ask? Well about 3 yrs ago when we found out what the problems were with my husbands immigration status, i googled it and found Amanda's blog. They are in the same boat we are immigration wise. Anyways i started following her blog then emailing her, and then decided to meet up with her, even though it was way out of my comfort zone to meet someone on the internet. I am glad I did though! So now we have a fun weekend planned in the city. It only took two months of being here to get it together 8) (our fault not theirs) Anyways i will report back with all the fun happenings and this time i am taking lots of pics

When Amanda told me she knew you, I couldn't believe it! She also knows Melissa from "Living On Refried Dreams." I mentioned to Amanda that if you guys would like to stop by, "mi casa es tu casa." I would love to meet you too and then we can all blog about it.

Jackie, i would have loved to meet you, but the hubby came to and well we just had to make it fun for all. Could not leave him behind.

Hoping i can convince him to let me come out for a weekend on the bus and meet up with all you ladies without him.

Rebecca, Amanda explained to me exactly what you wrote, and I understand. I hope you had a good time and were able to pick up some yummy treats.

That's so great! We have one couple here in El Salvador we have become friends with via the internet as well and even though we can't get together as often as I would like due to distance, it helps so much just knowing they are here sharing in all the same experiences. I hope you had a great time!
