South of the Border

Thanks to hard work and jobs well done, my husband and I joined several others from his place of employment last weekend on an all expenses paid getaway to Mexico.

I wished I had taken my Canon, but my cell phone camera worked well enough.


It’s raining sunshine!

Loved the vibrant colors of this hotel. Views from the beachfront restaurant weren’t too shabby either.


The Midnight Sun

Here’s to hoping these snapshots from my time in sun soaked serenity will keep me warm as tonight’s temperatures here at home dip into the teens.

  1. Great pictures! Glad y’all had a good time. Mary went down there last year for Ella’s senior cruise and said it was gorgeous.

  2. Hooray for a well-earned vacation! Those pics make me want to hustle and be a travel writer. SIGH. Hope y’all had a blast.
