Chances Taken

In more ways than one, I've taken chances. One, I've started a blog. Or... shall I say I'm ATTEMPTING to start a blog. :) Two, I've found love in Mexico. I won't get into the details of the situation. However, I WILL tell you a little bit about my hubby and I. We've "known" eachother for almost 18 years now. I put known in quotations because back then we didn't really know eachother too well. It was more like we knew OF eachother. We shared similar friends and both found the other attractive (although it wasn't known at the time). Fast forward about 15 or so years, we got back in contact and I went to see him. I pretty much never left. He's always been very attractive and once I had his attention, I wasn't about to let him go. Add three years, one engagement, and one baby to the equation, and we are now at present day. Attempting to plan our future together, raising a beautiful daughter, and experiencing this new life... all while still learning new things about eachother... TOGETHER.

The adjustment hasn't always been easy for us but, fortunately, he keeps me level-headed and seems to do a better job at fixing problems than I do. I mean this both figuratively and physically. In a blond moment, I called him the 'fixer of the house' (aka handyman to MOST people, LOL), but I really mean it in more ways than one. He fixes our home & he fixes us. He is great. He makes me laugh. He makes me happy. When I'm with him and our daughter, I feel complete. Through bad times and good I am here for him (dispite what my come out of my big mouth at "convenient" times).

Some people would call me crazy, some might think that I'm stupid. But, I actually LIKE living in Mexico. Sure there are a few things that I miss about the US... but I get enough of it when I come up to work. I like the slower-paced life. It's like our own little world. It's where I've found love and it's where we have started a family. It's where I'm happy. I look forward to continuing to explore all that Mexico has to offer me and my family in the years to come. I look forward to making memories with my loved ones. It might not be the life that some would want to live, but it's mine, and I love it. My love for my husband has no borders. I just hope he can put up with me forever. ;)
