Home is Where My Heart Is!

My wife and I took off and headed to Mexico. As we descended on Mexico City I could see Popocatepetl and Iztaccihuatl in the background and heart soared! HOME! There’s really nothing like it! I live in one of the most beautiful places in the United States – Fort Collins, Colorado – the Choice City but I also have a home in Mexico an hour and a half south of the metropolis in Amecameca.  How wonderful to have 2 Homes. We love both of them dearly.

Having somewhere to go is Home.  Having someone to love is Family..  Having both is a Blessing

Amecameca means Family to me. My Godparents - May they rest in peace – gave me all the love my parents were incapable of. Their Family – now mine – fills my home with Love and Laughter, Blessings and Tears of Joy! When I am home in Ameca my spirit drinks the air of kindness and beauty!

In Colorado, my Wife and I do our best to bring that same flavor of bursting Love to our Children and their Wives and look forward to the day when we can share it with our Grandchildren. Every tradition, every daily practice of old blended with new adds spice to the mole.

Fort Collins and Amecameca have so much in common. They’re each a satellite of a huge metropolis. They each sit at the foothills of the most beautiful mountains in the world. They’re each known for their tourism and education. They each celebrate the past and the present and envision a sparkling future. They each have Family we dearly love!


When in Mexico we said to our loved ones, “Bags are packed and saying Goodbye for awhile! I'm going home!” You see, two beautiful homes to love! Now, I’m home in Colorado and when we looked out the plane window and saw the airport in Denver our hearts soared! HOME! There’s really nothing like it!

PS  Smoking never crossed my mind!
