Today is Christmas everywhere, and since I got home to Monterrey I've been constantly thinking about Christmases past, when I was a girl living in Mexico City and how we took the train every year, yes, the choo choo kind of train that took about 16 hours to take us from Mexico City to Monterrey, a trip that would take today only one hour by plane.. it's not too far away in the past, well, almost 20 years. Once we got finally here, we would go stay at my grand parent's house and spend Christmas and New Years and then on Jan 2 we would take the train back to Mexico City. The best part of it all, of course, was the trip!
Thinking about Christmas for this Found Art Tuesday I thought about how it used to be such a happy time for me because we were on vacation in a different city and we got to spend time with all this family we didn't see so often because we lived somewhere else, and then I realised this is exactly what is happening to my family now. I have two small children who feel it's such an adventure to come here to Monterrey and have such a wonderful time here with the grandparents, cousins, etc. So really the most important Christmas is this one, today.
