We are finally in Mexico and it feels like a dream come true. It's been 6 since I was last here and I am simply delighted to see my friends again and to visit such a magical place that is Tulum.

So far, it looks like taking the weather with me has worked, we've had a couple of fast showers but nothing very major, cloudy most of the time but with a few rays of sun to keep us hoping for more.

Just today we hang out by the beach in the morning, had 2 breakfasts and visited one of the many beautiful lagoons of the area. Tomorrow we are moving to a friend's hotel and the probably visit some cenotes.

Sunday will be the ruins, World Cup Final and most important event of that day is my husband's birthday. There is Wi-Fi (and free) at most hotels, so I might be able to share more adventures soon!

'till then...

taking the weather...

On our way to Mexico today...

Here in Grand Cayman it's not raining and although it was a little overcast yesterday, I am expecting to do like the Crowded House song and "Take the weather with me"... So please, join me in this little prayer so we can get some good, sunny weather during our vacation.

"Dear father, thank you for the rain that gives so much nurture to the soil and the plants. Thank you for the sun that gives warmth and energy to all living things. Send us some of that precious sunshine to keep us company during our holiday, but mostly thank you for everything everything you gives us everyday. Amen."

Until we meet again in the cyber world, I will be around here...

See ya'...

travel ready

Remember the time with people actually used to dress up to travel? I don't think I ever did, I always go for comfort over glamour and now with even more reason, since going through security is something like this:

Stylish girl getting to the gate... 

The she reaches security and...

Like I said this is never me, I am barely stylish in my daily life, so you won't see me traveling like that, although I can totally relate to the two colors socks, LOL!

So, "All my bags are packed, I'm ready to go..." 

It's so exciting to finally go away on a long vacation, I really cannot remember the last time I went away for a whole two weeks of just vacation while visiting other than family.

Back in 2007 we went to visit my husbands family in Maryland and Ohio, and that was fun but it was 100% family time, which is cool, but nothing like an actual vacation, just the two of us, with a few friends around to visit, but still, us together, at a hotel with our own itinerary and time management, lovely!

Well, tomorrow is the day, and I am so grateful to God for giving us this opportunity, I am going to make the best out of it and enjoy myself to the fullest.

I dunno what the internet accesses situation will be and whenever I can squeeze in a post I will totally do it, I will have my notebook with me but, no promises. I do promise lots and lots of pictures and stories for when I come back... so stay tuned and I'll keep you posted!!!

Blessings to all!!!

Sunny Tuesday

Well, I guess my sun salutation post from yesterday was enough to encourage a day of sun on the island, now time to go out and thaw from the past rainy days, oh no wait a minute, I have to work today and tomorrow, but then is off to Mexico... yey!

We went to visit my brother and sister in law yesterday afternoon, their house is very nice and such a big improvement from a 1 bedroom apartment they used to rent before... Had a great time; good company, delicious food, good wine, and a nice place... can't get better than that! Oh, yes they even had a chocolate cake for my husband for his coming birthday that we are going to celebrate while in Mexico.

Mau & Gaylene's new Cayman Cottage

But I guess besides the sun reading my blog the following Kitty decided to put the Sun Salutation to the test... isn't he adorable?

Today is also my older brother's birthday, so a BIG shout out to him (even though he doesn't read my blog), hope he is having a fab day and that God blesses him for more years to come... Love you bro!

(mark, me, The birthday bro Gian, his wife Tracie)

So, lots to do today and then is off to Mexico. can't wait I am so excited, have a nice day!

here comes the sun

The entire weekend was raining, on a off and with very strong (at least 30 miles p/h gusts) winds. There seems to be a disturbance located southwest of us and unfortunately heading towards the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico for the next two days, hopefully it would be passed that point by Thursday as we are heading that way on vacation.

So on today's post I figure it might be better to put some sunshine somewhere, how about a Yoga Sun Salutation to send good vibes to us as well as our next vacation destiny?

If you have never tried this series of movements I highly recommend them, they are great for your heart, your coordination as well as your balance. Better to practice them very early in the morning, but don't worry if you feel awkward or you think you are not flexible enough, the more you do them, the better you get, and the benefits are fantastic.

You don't even have to kill yourself and do a lot of them, with at least 3 sets once a day or every other day, I'm sure you'll see a difference and feel more energetic.

Today is a holiday here on the island (Constitution Day) and I am working from 9am to 3pm, then we are going to go see my brother and his wife as they just moved to a new place, hopefully it won't be raining too hard!

Happy Weekend and stay dry!
