Musings on Mexico

“I just want to live happily ever after, every now and then.”
Jimmy Buffett

When I think of my time in Mexico, this is how it makes me feel. Like I’m in my happily ever after…….at least until I have to return home and back to reality.  Not that my reality is harsh, but I’ve been working for a very long time and I’m looking forward to when everyday is a Saturday.  Still, I won’t complain because I’m thankful that we have this little slice of paradise we get to taste every now and again.  I’m grateful that I have a job to return to with accruing vacation hours to use on my next trip. Someday, in the not too distant future, I will retire and take some very large bites out of that piece of pie!

Now that we are more settled in at Casita Paraiso, life in Chemuyil is enjoyed at a nice and easy pace. Unless we have an appointment (which are very few and far in between) or are meeting someone to go out to dinner with, we seldom look at our watches. Whether we’re in the pueblo, walking from shop to shop or sitting at the beach with our feet in the sand, and floating in the Caribe – all is right with the world. No worries, just in the moment of happily ever after.
