My Mexican Permanent Residency Visa and a NEW BOOK RELEASE!

Hola from Sayulita, México!

  1. Those residency card photos are the WORST! Mine looks absolutely like a mug shot. They won't let you smile, which makes them so wretched. Yours is actually not bad. Congratulations on the book. I have a few library ebooks I have to get to first as they have due dates, but I definitely look forward to reading Pickle Jar Test soon. :-)

    1. Emily, thanks for saying my mug shot is not bad. You're right, they won't let you smile--I should have included that in the blog :)
      Thank you for your plans to read Pickle Jar Test. Let me know what you think.
      I hope you and your family are doing well.

  2. Oh and congratulations on getting your PR too! (Meant to include that in the above comment but got ahead of myself!)

    1. Thank you! Getting my Mexican Permanent Residency card was a huge step!
