Not All Orchids & Butterflies



No, not all parts                                 
of my new life here
are orchids and butterflies—
wouldn’t be that way anywhere
But in Mexico,
living full-time
as a legalized permanent resident
and all the promise
and commitment
and responsibility                 
and long-termness that   
that brings

has its moments

that’s for sure…
has its moments           
for sure…
they just somehow
seem to have different
edges, and dimensions
some obvious and in your face,
subtle and submerged in the color and rhythm of the culture….



About the author: Are you interested in knowing the inside scoop on moving to Mexico? Coastal vs. Central, Visa Process, Schooling, Housing, Medical Care & Expat Health Insurance, Car Importation, Budget, Cell Phone Service, Ins & Outs of Daily Life in Mexico? Together with my Retired Firefighter Hubby and our now 17-year-old twins, we immigrated to Mexico in 2012 from Southern California to create our lives anew. Nine years into our Mexico Adventure, we continue to help families, individuals and couples to carve out their own re-invented, re-inspired lives south of the border. If you too are interested in creating a life of design in Mexico, feel free to contact me at [email protected] for details on how I can be of service to you and your family. Saludos, Katie ☘️
