So what is the point of this post you may be asking? I'm not really sure other than to say that I'm learning to enjoy life day by day and that actually is a hard lesson for me to master. I was so accustomed to fast paced, crazy days at work, then running home to start my second job - all the time frustrated because I didn't have time to do the things I longed to do or more time to spend with my family and friends. Then all of a sudden I have that time and I have to admit that it has taken me almost two years to get used to that. Sounds insane I know. But I'm getting there and part of that journey has taught me to sometimes just sit still and look at the scenery. To watch a bird hopping around our garden. To literally listen to the birds sing. I don't feel so guilty over "wasting time" doing those simple things because in the end, maybe they are more important for the soul than worrying about finishing the next article I'm working on. Being here in Mexico has helped me learn those little lessons. Like I said before, Mexico is a beautiful country.
Here are a few more pictures from Patzcuaro, el "Pueblo Magico" and the surrounding area.

Have a great weekend!
