The Three Amigas Trip - Top Ten List

I am back !

Feels like I should still have sand between my toes...

Was thrilled to see my Man and to sleep in my own bed last night

but definitely feeling the glow from

a marvelous Three Amigas Vacation to Playa Del Carmen, Mexico !

(Touch down - Me, Suzanne and Nathalie taken by our Mexcian bus driver in Cancun)

Rather than go on and on about our wonderful time,

I am going to give you a Top Ten Best Things about My Mexico Vacation.

El numer diez


10. The warmth...they were having a bit of a cold snap this winter, but the days were in the low 80's and the nights were cooler in the 50's. Still - there is nothing like that sunshine warmth on your skin for a Northern girl like me...

Kathy said...

You are absolutely the devil to taunt me with these pictures! Seriously, it looks like the most wonderful, relaxing, fun vacation. The picture of you in your turquoise bandana adorable, and I cannot wait to read more about your shopping trip. I've been to Mexico twice: once when I was eight years old and once with my husband and children. The colors, climate, and music of Mexico are just intoxicating, not to mention the food and libations! I'd love to return with friends to see the folk-art of the region. All envy aside, Kim, I'm so glad you got to take this trip.

Love,
Kathy
