About

Wife. Mother. Friend. Adventurer.

Aren’t we all different things to different people? Not too long ago, I was climbing the ladder in corporate America. The oldest child and the only girl, I’ve always been predictable: Go to college. Find boy. Marry boy. Adopt dog. Have child. Raise child. Work for Fortune 500 company. Excel. Live and die by my Outlook calendar. Rush. Rush. Rush.

 

Then one day, my husband came home and asked if I might like to move to Mexico City, and I said, “yes”. Did I mention, I had never even been to Mexico City? And since then, things haven’t been so predictable.

Chapultepec-17Goodbye job. Goodbye paycheck (I will miss you the most!). Goodbye cars….I love driving. And, goodbye to my family, friends and my very safe, structured and predictable life.

And, hello, blog!

Que te vaya bien.

    Hi – Like you, I am soon to become a trailing spouse in the DF (moving this summer) and have read your blog with great interest! I have some questions that I would love to ask, about schools (I have a 13 year old), your relocation company, and how you found a ‘muchacha’…if you are willing, is there some way to email you privately? Love your blog!

    Then one day, my fiance came home and asked if I might like to move to Canada, and I said, “yes”. Did I mention, I had never even been to Canada? And since then, things haven’t been so predictable. SOOO SIMILAR! Isn`t, it? 😉 Good luck for everything, but 1st of all, happy blogging! 🙂

    Hi! It’s been a while! I have been following your posts with great interest as my own move-date gets closer…I see that my blog has made it on your radar – thanks for the ‘like’ on the Lucha Libre post! I am still building a decent inventory of posts before I start to promote it, but am encouraged that a few people seem to have found it in the meantime. We will be making the shift likely in May, and I hope that we will be able to connect once we get there!
    best!

    Sometimes getting away from a structured and predictable life is the best thing you could ever do. It was for me. Love your blog!

    Haha, I enjoy the lightheartedness you wrote your ‘about me’ with. I stumbled upon your blog on the Lucky Mag contributors page and glad I did. I’ll be following you to see more about your adventures. 🙂
