I have a really exciting announcement! I’m taking my first big trip in a very long time… I’m traveling to Mexico City next month! I’m taking my mom with me because my husband is super busy with multiple writing projects. But it’s also something special to do with my mother, who is from Mexico City, and spend some time with her.

I used to travel to Mexico City every summer during high school (it’s the only other country I’ve ever been to). At that time, I just wanted to smoke and drink and go to clubs, so my plans for this trip are a little different. The last time I was there was fifteen years ago, when my grandmother passed away. For many years I did not want to go back because I missed her. But then, I developed a whole other reason for not wanting to go back, or travel anywhere for that matter…

Since traveling is essentially the act of being lost and wandering, I had no desire to feel more lost than I already did in my own life, at home in Los Angeles.

It was in my early 30’s that I developed a serious wanderlust, but it’s been hard to find the right combination of time and money. They’ve been hard to sync up.

All that being said, I’m so excited to finally be traveling, and I love that Mexico City is the first destination. Stay tuned for some fun traveling posts…!
