One Year Anniversary

We made it.  One year has now passed and we are still alive.  Most of us.  Some of the chickens did not make it but to be fair, they did not move with us from the states.  The cats are doing well after my paranoia passed about not letting them outside.  It’s dangerous…..scorpions and all that.  They are going outside now and are happy.  No scorpion problems.

  1. You did do it and what a year you have had! I’d say your move has been a smashing success, congrats on the one year mark. That is one of my favorite spots also – it looks so beautiful and peaceful in the photo but I love it when it’s filled with people too! Can’t wait to visit your beautiful home and town again!!

  2. Congratulations! Jobs well done Ana and Mickie.
    Did I spell Mickie right? So very happy for you both. Family time was (and is) much needed time. Fun fun fun. TEQUILLA!
