Chiapas, Mexico

We are getting really excited (and nervous) to move to Chiapas. We found these beautiful videos showing us all the glory we can expect to see.

This first one is all about the city we will be living in. It looks so cute and full of cultural beauty. Caitlin spent some time here during her MesoAmerica Tour. She loved it.




This one is all about the state Chiapas. Hopefully we get to explore a lot of the surrounding areas while we are there.



Hopefully you enjoyed those videos. And hopefully this made you want to come visit us in Mexico even more!

Taking Care of Business

So Caitlin is basically amazing when it comes to selling earrings. She has sold more than 60 pairs so far. Sound crazy? Not really. She is amazing. I don't want this to sound rude, but I have been completely blown away at the response to her earrings. I mean, I thought they were good and she was talented - but I'm her husband and you never know if that perception is skewed. Luckily, it was not, and she has been ultra successful and we are getting really excited to put the money to good use in Mexico. 

This past week (or maybe two weeks ago) there was a 5/10 K race on my campus, so Caitlin set up a booth to sell her earrings. She was pretty successful that day, selling 10 pairs of earrings. It is really cool to see how much people love them, and even cooler when you see people wearing the earrings around. Today I was talking to a friend (actually handing her a pair of earrings she bought) and two of the girls at the table were actually wearing earrings they bought from Caitlin. How cool is that?

We are really excited about things and appreciate all your support. If you are needing some earrings, maybe as a gift or for yourself, you can use the coupon code MOTHERS for free shipping until May 12 (Mother's Day). What mom doesn't love a nice pair of earrings? :)
