Why did we leave the States to Move to Mexico?
We are often asked these questions (in addition to many others!)–usually with intrigue and curiosity–other times with bewilderment and skepticism.
What about The American Dream?
Why did we relocate our family to Mexico, uproot ourselves from our country of birth, begin our lives anew South of The Border?
The answers are varied but all end up at the same place.
A Better Life
We wanted a better life for our family–to cultivate abundance and longevity, enjoy the precious, never-to-be-had-again-moments, get out of the rat race, slow down, smell the flowers, disconnect and reconnect.
Prior to our move to mainland Mexico in 2012, we spent many years exploring the Baja Peninsula, including leasing a 30 by 60 piece of sand in the slow-paced fishing village of Bahia de Los Angeles on the Sea of Cortez.
At one point during our relocation research, BOLA was a serious contender—as was La Paz México, Colorado, Washington, Oregon, even North Carolina!
Even now, at the nearly seven year mark into this Mexico Adventure, we have zero regrets about our decision to raise our family South of The Border.
The adventures continue to evolve and reveal themselves in the magic and gifts of each day. Oh the stories our children will tell!
We are eternally grateful to our Querido México.
