Ready or not, here I go!

I'm new to the world of blogging. I wish I had known about it 8 years ago, when I first moved to Mexico. I could have written hundreds of blogs about adapting to my new life. For those of you who don't know me, I am an American, born and raised in the good ol' U.S. of A. But 8 years ago, my husband, Alfonso and I decided to move to a small town in Mexico, with our two very young children. (Hope, was almost 3, and Nick, turned 1 the day after we arrived.)

Why Mexico, you ask. To be closer to my husband's family. And close we were, indeed! For 3 and a half years we lived with my in-laws. Which isn't as bad as it sounds. Lucky for me, I have been blessed with wonderful in-laws. My father-in-law, Don Chuy, is a very old-fashioned man. And my mother-in-law, Doña Esperanza, is just an amazing person to know. But that's not all. My husband, is the youngest of 6 children. 2 are currently living in The States and the rest live here in our small town. They are all married and have children. If we don't see eachother during the week, we all get together on Sunday afternoons for lunch at my in-laws, all 19 of us!!!

In the 8 years that we've lived here, I have given birth to another 2 children. I went back to the States to have my daughter Ashley. And my youngest son Jack, was born right here in Mexico.

Well, I hope everyone will enjoy getting to know our family and learning about the wonderful culture and traditions that Mexico has to offer.

God bless and take care,
Leslie Limon
