Last week, I posted this on my instagram:
Normally I would post something like this on my blog but given the circumstances I am going to use instagram to post. Back in February my husband and I decided to move closer to the ocean. We felt that the places we had backpacked through in December provided us with a vibe like no other. A place with people who think and are more like we are. A place where we imagined raising a family one day. A place where we could grow as individuals and as a couple. So we began taking the necessary steps to make this dream come true. A dream so big that we are astounded at our resourcefulness and determination to make it happen against all odds. We set a date as to when we'd leave and on July 15th we made it happen. Packed up our things into our car and drove the 15 hours to Tepic, Nayarit. We are in awe of this place and it's only been a couple of days. It was the most beautiful road trip with its green hills and excellent weather. And with the ocean an hour away, the adventures are going to be endless. This is the beginning of a new journey. A new HIStory. I can't even begin to explain how big a part God has been in this new beginning. I will leave that for my blog as this is becoming a novel. Stay tuned for more adventures!
I can't believe that we actually put all of our belongings in our car and drove the distance to pursue a dream together! In the span of 3 years I have done this twice. Once for love and now for life. Both working in tandem and offering the best of everything. I am truly truly honored that God has worked His plan and we stayed confident that He was going to provide us with the light at the end of the tunnel. Man oh man, He definitely exceeded our expectations and we are truly grateful. This city has been magical. Beautiful. And the way that it has received us has been the best experience so far. Smiles everywhere you go, never a dull face, and lots of happy people. Happy people equals a happy city and a happy city therefore creates a happy life. That's the equation I've come up with for Tepic.
We have a lot to discover still and so many places to get to know. So stay tuned to this blog here because it's going to get interesting!!!
P.S. Anyone from or been to Tepic before? Give me the insider tips in the comments below!
