Going SOUTH

As some of my dearest readers may remember... Gustavo and I built a house. We were COMPLETELY in love with the house and PICKED everything... Long story short, after many missed deadlines and an unsightly tree...

We decided that we no longer wanted the house.
My heart was BROKEN! I had everything shipped and ready to move in...

THEN- We found a second house that honestly, was not everything we wanted... But it was ok. In the end, Gustavo talked me out of that house too! (Thanks Babe!!! Good Call!!!)

I am getting closer to the DIRTY THIRTY and I am feeling the need to SETTLE. I am looking for the 3 S's (Safety, Security, Stability)

One thing that I love about Gustavo is that he is like me as far as adventure, travel and taking the easier but not so traveled road!

We have NO intention of returning to AMERICA. Not to live.

We are setting our sites SOUTH of the border to Central America!


Most people just look at us like we are crazy when we tell them that we are going to Nicaragua; but heck, we are used to those looks!


Here are our main reasons:

1. Low cost of living: 1 USD to 24.40 Nicaragua cordoba









2. Low MURDER rate (13:100,000) Steady for 5 years:)

3. Beautiful weather, cheap medical and a fresh start!

Before and After Flat Pics

My first flower design!!!


The kids and the Nanny did the sand here... The personal touches mean a LOT! One each!






BEFORE

AFTER
The furniture stayed in the same spot because of the CABLE... It looks much bigger in the living room though. I think that it was a good change and it happened with small pieces. I went crazy in IKEA! I cannot wait to decorate our house in America! With Gustavo and I on the same team, I know our house will be LOVELY!
Which is better? Before or After?
