Bon Voyage!

Good morning, dear ones! 🙂 How was your weekend? What lovely things did you discover or create?

I had a great weekend, but a chock-full, crazy-busy, now-I’m-so-tired-I-can’t-think-but-it-was-worth-it one. 🙂

I was able to go hiking with my friend Stacey, stay up much too late talking up a storm with her and our pal Trish, grill fresh salmon and all sorts of veggies with my bro and sis-in-law and a whole slew of dear friends, cheer on my sibs and friends in a marathon they ran today, and meet up with more family and friends for ice cream at Mallard, a splendid ice cream parlor in Bellingham.

Now I’m cozy in my armchair, sipping tea and luxuriating in the stillness and quiet, smiling at lovely memories and planning a new week.

This week is an exciting one for me because I’m heading to Cancun, Mexico for a writing assignment!! I still can’t quite believe it. 🙂 I’ve never been to this part of Mexico before, and cannot wait to explore, meet interesting people, and park myself on the beach for a few hours and do absolutely nothing but soak up sunshine, read a good novel, and rest, rest, rest. This will be my first vacation this year and although it’s a working one and only for a few days, I’m absolutely thrilled to pieces. I promise to take all sorts of pictures and share my adventures with you. 🙂

What is your favorite sort of a vacation? Are you a “happy to turn off the phone and stay home” sort of person, or do you like to head out to new places?

I wish you all a beautiful week!

Raphael Neff - If anyone will take in Cancun, it will be you, Krista. Excited for you that this opportunity came up! Know you’ll have a fabulous time, and eager to hear how it goes.

I’m actually SO excited for Hawaii – first time. Joanna is super-thrilled. It’ll be a rejuvenating experience. As much as we love travelling it’s crazy how few times we’ve been outside the USA.

bellini valli - How exciting. Enjoy the much needed sunshine after living on the Pacific Northwest:D Cancun is a vibrant and interesting city once you explore away from the hotel strip.

[email protected] - What a great weekend indeed Krista! It’s always nice to catch up with a friend and just sit and chat your mouths off. Even better that you also got to sound time with family.

Lucky ducky! I hope you have a wonderful relaxing time in Mexico! I love a vacation where I can eat and try a lot of new foods! I used to be a stay at home type, but now with kids I want to show them the world and love going to new places with them!

Tracy Myers - Enjoy yourself, Krista! For me, a vacation is anywhere I can put up my feet and relax… be it in the sun, or a rainy day with a good book. Friends and loved ones are the icing on the cake. Have a great time.

Joanne - Babe I hope you laze about in the sun and enjoy every second of your vacation! I will miss you but I want to hear all sorts of lovely stories when you return!

Bekah Mae - So excited for you! Have a lovely trip and don’t forget to RELAX!

corrie - Lately I’ve loved LOVED staying home with the phone off and either cooking or enjoying a glass of wine while the man cooks (like right now!) but I hope to have adventures of your sort soon! Lots of love, Corrie

Anna Johnston - Lucky Krista.., so jealous. Cancun is on my bucket list of places I must see, I’ve heard wonderful things & as a sun lovin’ Aussie, ‘this I must see & experience’ for myself 🙂 Have a wonderful time, rest up, turn off the mobile phone (but take loads of photos please…., so I can turn a deeper shade of green) Have fun!

Barbara - You’re going to have so much fun! Be sure to share with us…
I love nearly all the Caribbean islands but our favorite is
St. Lucia. Could stay there forever!

Zita - I fell in love with the first photo of this post!!! Where was this taken???

Lucky you! I was once in Mexico visiting my friend. I was in Mexico City, Teotihuacán, Puebla, Cholula, Veracruz but not in Cancun! It must be beautiful!

Cancun Carol - Very nice, those pictures are beautiful!
