New Adventures Coming Our Way

Our big news for the year--moving to a new country! Job has been working in Mexico since March, and I am on a plane down there right now. This is big for us. Lots of changes from Boston, Massachusetts to Monterrey, Mexico. We are very excited about our opportunities there, and are ready for a whole lot of new adventure! But my goodness, we will miss Boston. So, so much. We have grown and developed as individuals and a family during our time here, and absolutely fell in love with the city, New England, and all the people we have met here. We have lived here the longest in our marriage, and dug our roots deep, even in our relativity short time of 5 1/2 years. It will always stand as an important chapter in our history, and our future kids will know how much Boston meant to their parents.

Job's experiences at the Boston Conservatory, and particularly with his teacher Markus, prepared him to gain employment performing full time in the Monterrey symphony orchestra, and teaching at UANL (a university in the city). It is a blessing and a dream recognized to be able to make a good living performing his art.

I have had the best job during my time in Boston. Working as a nurse for a very incredible young man, and with a fantastic team at the Kennedy Day school, FHFC. I grew in my career, and loved going to work each day. It was a happy mix.

We adventured around the city, traveled the New England area and beyond, and tried to fully integrate ourselves into life here. We loved each season, even the crazy, memorable snow storms. We took the T, ate the food, met the people, walked the streets (we're not street walkers, but, you know), saw the sites, went to the events, and embraced this place to the fullest we could. In a word, it is home.

But home is wherever we are together; so, we are looking forward with bright eyes to our new home and new life in beautiful Monterrey, Mexico!
