I'm Back!

Hola a todos!

Well its been a lengthy break, but I am back I missed my blog terribly!! I am going to be making a new blog about our life here in Canada,our adventures, the ups and downs of adjusting to life here, immigration, and anything else that comes to my head.

Coming back to Canada, I was a hot mess. I was miserable, in a lot of ways I felt like I failed myself and L for not trying to make it work there.. Three months later, I am starting to adjust to life back in Canada. The good news? Summer Days are back! So this means it doesnt get dark until 9pm which is really nice, bbqs, sunshine, and showing L all around canada, in true tourist style! :)

L's paperwork for permanent residence is currently being proccessed. In Canada there are two stages for immigration. The first is that I have to be approved as a sponsor, then our case will be transferred to Mexico for another few months while they decide if we are truly in a genine relationship, and once we satisfy all of their requriements, they will issue him PR! Right now Stage 1 is taking approx. 90 DAYS! Which is crazy, considering in december it was only 45 days, but we keep telling ourselves that it will be worth it in the end.

After that, we have some big plans for us.. but I wont be going into too much detail about that until we are at that stage.

I missed this so much, I am so happy I am back! the blog will also be having a big makeover too, but I just wanted to update everyone!

An Update and Goodbye

Hey Everyone,

Just wanted to give an update. L and I are two weeks away from sending in our application.. We are super excited about this. We spent the day preparing the application and now it is all ready to go, just have to wait a few more weeks. Since my last post, I feel a lot better as my reverse-culture shock has settled. Mexico will always hold a special place in my heart, it is my second home. I am forever grateful for the lessons it has taught me, the wonderful person I found there that I simply could not live a day without. As we move forward with life, its time to close the chapter on this door. In the past year alone Len and I have spent 6 months in Mexico and 6 months in Canada.. starting over constantly can get exhausting. I have also been spending too much time wondering 'what if?' Too scared to continue with life here worried that we made the wrong decision to return..I realized I fantasized both Mexico and Canada in its own ways, but as I spend more time here I am beginning to see a more balanced view of the two.

That being said, I have decided to discontinue my blog as another way to move forward with our life. I  wanted to say thank you to all and let you know how grateful I am to have found such wonderful people because of my blog, and I hope that we can all keep in contact. Feel free to email me if you want to add me on facebook.. mexi-canme@hotmail.com.

Saludos and muchas gracias a todos, amigas!
