Mosaic Monday - Missing Mexico

Viva Mexico!

Our business is in Mexico and we lived there for a few years to get everything established and our son set up to manage 
the operation. We have lived here in the U.S. now for 
nearly two years... but, oh how I miss those
wonderful times we had with our son and his family
and our friends. We traveled as much as we could
and built a ranch home for the family and our
business partners to enjoy.
We were just minutes away from favorite places:

* 5 minutes to our son and his family's home 

* 7 minutes from the beach - beautiful view and great food
* 15 minutes from our friends' beach homes

* 30 minutes from Manzanillo

* 60 minutes from Pinar de Cheyenne - palm trees, close-up view of the volcano, cool air

*180 minutes from Guadalajara - shopping, movies,
historic palaces and more!

I really miss the 

*12 minute drive to Rancho Don Pedro - our ranch
where we would barbecue with our son and his 
family, have dinner parties and just quiet play time
with our grandchildren.

Karen...Your grandchildren are so precious.I just love that little picture of them. Thanks for stopping by my Buttons for Baga and sharing your thoughts with me. I really appreciate your kind words. This mosaic with your pictures of Mexico is lovely. I had not heard about Anerican Agriwomen, but I certainly am familiar with M.E.’s “Snap Out of It” saying and pictures. Hope you have a good week.

Oh, that cool air you mention sounds fabulous. As do all the places you were close to there. You had a very special life down there. Do you get to visit very often?
My Dad was in love with Mexico the way you are. He spent every chance he got down there. I was "this close" to being born a Mexican citizen instead of an American one.
