This is the last of our Mexico pictures. My parents are still down there, and I wish we were too. What a wonderful break it was, in the midst of complete chaos. Thanks to everyone who sent good vibes our way and PLEASE keep them coming.
More pics here, here, and here.
So sad our vacation is over…
Back to work we go. It has been a bit chilly in Santa Barbara these last few days home. Brrrr!
We had such a great time with the folks. We could not ask for better parents, on both sides. We laid out, read books, and ate some amazing meals. Now, back to reality.
On a side note…please keep the mister and I in your prayers, as we are about to endeavor on a few new challenges. We know God will have our backs, but a little extra prayer never hurts.
We are still in Mexico, and enjoying every moment of it. The husband decided to go parasailing the other day, and I about freaked out. I asked him if all of our life insurance was up to date. (half kidding, half not). It was pretty spectacular to watch him fly. I stayed on the ground and watched.
I also snapped a few pictures of the locals, who never cease to amaze me. Always so happy and joyful. (maybe it’s the cerveza). And the water, who could ever say that they don’t like the ocean, the sound, the feel, the beauty, I love it all! I also love tacos.
ps, husband took a camera up in the sky with him, so the aerial views are amazing. And we snuck a quick photo of mom and dad.
We decided to run off to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico for a week. The husband and I have a jam-packed schedule in the coming months. Our life is so full right now, I didn’t even know it could get this good. So, before all the craziness happens we needed a little r&r. By the way, someone told me to try the coca cola down here, even though I don’t drink soda, and I did, and it was exceptionally good. Must be the syrup. I don’t know, just try it if you get here.
Happy Friday, from the desert. I’m on a fun girls trip, in Arizona. We are
sunning, eating, and shopping. Life couldn’t be much better.
have a wonderful weekend!
The husband and I decided to go on a little getaway for our one year
anniversary. We went to Palm Springs. What a fun adventure it was. We stayed
at La Quinta Resort and
Club. The grounds are gorgeous and the staff was amazing. We did lots of
lounging by the beautiful pool.
I have always wanted to check out Joshua Tree
(the inner-hippie in me). We decided to take one day and go explore the “ghost
town”. We stopped as soon as we arrived in Joshua Tree, to grab some food, at a
really great place called Crossroads Cafe. The small cafe reminded me of a struggling
musician hangout, with really chill folks. The food was delicious. lots of
vegan items and smoothies, along with some yummy sandwiches. After exiting the
cafe we drove 1/2 a block to the entrance of Joshua Tree National
Park. Wow! The most amazing place I have ever been. We drove 12 miles and
reached 5600ft, to see the most beautiful view. I suggest checking this place
out. You will not be disappointed. After gawking for a good hour, we headed
back to Palm Springs to relax some more before going home.
This was the
perfect little getaway. Thank you, husband.
PS Palm Springs had a Target and
Homegoods store, which I had to stop at, because as you know (or may not know),
Santa Barbara has neither.
