We had Lisa’s first birthday celebration in Mexico while on our recent trip to Bacalar. As we prepare for this huge transition, there are constant “firsts” and “lasts”. This will be our last Christmas in our beloved home in Austin. While this sounds rather morbid, it really isn’t. It’s a way to acknowledge the sad feelings and yet count down to our much anticipated departure. Our new friends presented Lisa with a flan cake alight with candles. It was a sweet gesture and also helped celebrate the day we signed the contract to buy their property.
