This week’s post is brought to you by sticky babies. I spent the last few days teaching and living at a family-based foster home type situation about an hour outside the city.

That's me and an agave bush in the town of Tequila yesterday! I hear there are snowstorms hitting the USA again this week. Clearly you all should move to Mexico with me.
