What a year! It started out just as I was really settling into life in Mexico, and I think what I remember most about the first half of 2011 is feeling really happy. And what better way to start the year? Of course, like all good things, my time in Mexico came to an end, and the boyfriend, Marley, and our new addition to the family, Sombrita, packed up our house just five minutes from the beach and moved to San Francisco. Dropping everything and moving to Mexico was what many - myself included - would consider a bold move and I admit that there were times when I couldn’t suppress that voice of doubt in the back of my mind. While I told myself everything would work out and that there was no option for failure, part of me feared that might not be true. But, after a stressful week spent living in a hotel while looking for a job and apartment, things started to come together. The boyfriend and I found an apartment despite not having jobs (what was starting to seem like an impossible feat), and I soon landed exactly the kind of job I had hoped for. While it was sad to say goodbye to my lazy beach days, I grow more enamored with San Francisco every day and I look forward to what 2012 has in store.
