A Year of Waiting

by Kim August 30, 2015

It’s been a year of waiting. Waiting for the baby. Waiting for news on the book. Waiting to see how our life takes shape as those dreams from Mexico make their way into the world.

On Big Changes

by Kim February 24, 2015

I’ve neglected this blog in the last month and there are good reasons for that. In fact, life has changed so completely in the past few weeks that I feel almost paralyzed as I sit here attempting to explain it all, complex as it is, in a tiny little blog post.
