It is always weird when we stay here in Ajijic Mexico during the holidays. There is not near the commercial aspect here. You are bombarded with gift giving and all the normal trappings of the holidays up north. I find that it is more about getting together with friends and sharing hugs and love. We have been invited to several cocktail parties and such and it's nice to plan on seeing those you love. I go into this knowing that this will be the first year where I won't be drinking or eating what everyone else enjoys but I have got it down to a real science and just take my own snacks that are gluten free. Friends know me and don't mind at all. And the not drinking thing doesn't bother me at all until the party goes on too long and people get silly. But my DH knows this gets on my nerves and he always is willing to leave. So lucky to have his support. One of the parties is right next door so when people get silly I can just walk home and DH can continue on if he likes.
Looking forward to my walk today. It's a beautiful clear bright and sunny day. Then we get together with dear friends for lunch at a favorite place where I enjoy their grilled Mahi fish tacos.
Have a wonderful day.
