…I married my my best friend and partner in this adventure we call life.


(no worries, I won’t get all gushy on y’all)

And how are we celebrating this anniversary?

We are in the middle of driving 1370 miles as we move from Lake Chapala (near the BIG city of Guadalajara) to our new home in Playa del Carmen (near the beach city of Cancun)

Last night we arrived at our friends house past Mexico City -kind of ragged and tired looking- and had a great visit.  There was even the added surprise of finding out that their downstairs neighbors are friends of ours we met in Manzanillo.  How cool is that?  Not only that, but in a couple towns over is a family that we met way back when we were “checking things out” before our move to Mexico.  Mexico is a large country but we are so thankful for the blessing of having a wide circle of friends.  I hope our kiddos have a clue of how cool that is.


My biggest thank you of the day goes to the man that I am so glad to have married. Our life has never been boring but through it all I am so happy to be by your side.  We managed to continuously work together and are raising a happy family.


We are all a little weird and life’s a little weird

And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours

We join up with them in mutual weirdness and call it love

-Dr Seuss

    Happy Anniversary!!! Friendship and appreciation in marriage makes for such a wonderful union.Nice blog in appreciation of one another.
    …. and I like the way you note the brotherhood all over the world as well. Yes, we also hope Madi appreciates this aspect of the WHY we know good people and not just the fact that we know them!

    Happy Anniversary! I hope everything goes well with your move and you can go somewhere special for a meal together and call it your Anniversary. 🙂 Just being near such beautiful places is like an anniversary present! 🙂 I love the beautiful water and beaches you will be living near. I hope everything goes well with your ministry there. Love and hugs from Arkansas!
