Texas and Oklahoma Photos

I wanted to share the last pictures from my time in Texas. I also tagged along with my parents on a road-trip to Oklahoma City to visit some friends, so there’s pictures from that as well. The longer I’m apart from my family and my country, the more I appreciate the time I do get…

Why I’m not giving up on Mexico

It’s no secret that moving to Mexico has been a dream of mine since I was in middle school. The 10 months I spent living in Ireland in 2012 went, all things considered, flawlessly, and I expected my time Mexico to be even better because I loved it so much. Things were relatively easy in…

Life Lately, in Photos

I’m currently in Texas, but here are some photos in Mexico from a couple of weeks ago: Carlos and I spent our first Valentine’s Day together (in person, that is) by eating Sinaloa-style tacos and quesadillas.
