Little life update

Hola from San Felipe! It’s been nearly two months since the last time we spoke *inserts crying emoji face here* When you go so long without writing it’s difficult to hop back on the blogging train. Where do I start? What do I say? What to catch you up on? To get the blogging ball…

Mexican food-hopping with Dad.

There’s something that my Step-Dad and I have a lot in common and that’s our love of food! He’s also a really great cook and has taught me a lot about cooking since him and my Mom have been together. Since I leave in a few days he decided to take me out for a daddy daughter day date to go shopping and…

Is this water sanitary?

Yesterday about 15 minutes before leaving on a desert adventure and trip to the waterfalls here in Mexico I got sick. When I say I got sick I mean sitting in the bathroom puking my guts out until I was in tears. THE WORST. So, this canceled my trip for an adventure that day. The…

Festival del Camarón

I still feel like a shrimp after this past Saturday evening at the shrimp fest. The shrimp festival in San Felipe has booths of art, treats, and of course shrimp all the way down the Malecon. I told myself that I could eat whatever I wanted and as much as I wanted that day without feeling bad about…

Valley of The Giants || San Felipe, Baja California, Mexico

This past week I had the treat of going out to Valle de los Gigantes which means Valley of the Giants….what kind of giants are we talking about? Okay, desert rats and cactus lovers such as myself, I’m about to steal your heart with this. It’s a forest full giant of cadon cacti. There’s something…

Shopping in Mexico

Beach Please

What’s one of the greatest things about being in Mexico? I’m so close to the sea!  San Felipe is located northeast of  Baja California which means we are located on the Sea Of Cortez (The Pacific Ocean is on the other side of the Baja) Where we are the water is pretty shallow and feels like warm bath…

Hola from Mexico!

Well, we made it to San Felipe! We drove in on Sunday early afternoon and everything went surprisingly smoothly. I was expecting delays getting into the boarder, multiple questions, troubles getting visas, etc. The greatest part was arriving in Calexico and the GPS said we were an HOUR away from Mexicali and the boarder but…

THE BLOG IS MOVING TO MEXICO!

Today we say “See You Later” to the Red Rocks of my home in Southern Utah. I have had the greatest blessing to have some time to be home for a good few months to soak up some quality time with my grandparents, friends, new Utah adventures, and the great sunshine of our hot summers. I also had the greatest opportunity…
