I failed on that count.
For months, we have shot pictures, travel many kilometers, enjoyed good time with friends… and we only have shared a few galleries – well captioned by Louise. But I lacked the discipline to expand these galleries with blogs to express thoughts not conveyed in the pictures.
Let’s reflect on 2013. It was a successful year, with two trips up North, visiting our families in Burlington and Vancouver.
It was a successful year as our physical and financial health remained excellent. It was also a time of decision.
While we were dead against having two places to live, we now feel that it may be the best answer to putting a square peg in a round hole:
We are Canadians. Our families live in Canada (Jérôme’s brother is in France). Being in Mexico is great, but it is very far from Canada, for sure.
After thinking on our various options, we have decided to become summer birds: have a cozy chez-soi in a quiet area of Mexico, to spend the winter, and spend our summers in Canada, with Louise’s family in Québec.
Our "Florida" room in the house in Jocotepec, Jalisco.
No picture from our apartment in Québec... But we are looking for something like:
Since we left Canada in 2007, our lives have been chaotic, adventurous, unplanned, full of trips, travels and visitors.
With our move(s) in 2014, we already feel that we need time to settle, enjoy the song of the birds and start a slightly more organized life. A few months in Mexico, a few months in Québec, a few months traveling.
That lifestyle may support a better discipline, and lead to better pictures, and blogging more often.
