Back From Paradise: Slice of Life Tuesday

I’m back!  A great week away and as I unpack and wash shorts and tees to put away, prepping for the winter ahead, I’m happy/sad to put the life we shared into my memory banks. Here’s some of my favorite pictures that will allow me to return when the snows of January and February  are getting me down.

So funny to think I used to HATE the idea of a beach vacation.  Why waste time laying around, browning when you could be off adventuring? So much to see… I still love adventure vacations but to take time for a book marathon, taking my Kindle out for a spin,  trying out new cocktails on a beach chair in front of a gorgeous ocean, being treated like a VIP at the Excellence Playa Mujeres,  enjoying my sandals for a week in late Fall AND…

having Tuvia by my side.. 

and I have one day to get myself back to “normal” and then repack a bag, fill my gas tank, stop by and pick up Tara Smith and we are off, for that important adventure coming to us in Boston….NCTE, NWP…. and a chance to reconnect with family and my absolute favorite city!

Let the adventures continue 🙂

  1. This year in your favorite city and next year in my favorite city (DC)!
    What wonderful photos from your trip. Looks like a beautiful resort. And so wonderful Tuvia is healthy again so you could share it together.

  2. Woo hoo – the clouds gave way and a loevly time was had … as the pictures tell! Can’t wait to hear about it all on our ride up tomorrow.

  3. Any place with a beach and beautiful water is most definitely paradise! Looks like it was a wonderful trip…welcome back to reality 😉

  4. What an awesome vacation for resting and relaxing! I need to soak up some of those sun rays too. Have a fabulous time in Boston with Tara and Linda. I would love to have had you to show me around. I’ve never been to Boston, but it is on my wish list.

  5. Looking at the pictures makes me relax. Glad you have them to pick you up on dismal days. Being with Tuvia – the best. I love the pictures of the two of you together. Your smile is awesome! Have fun in Boston – lots of learning. 🙂

  6. You both look genuinely happy. I love that you put ..Tuvia by your side.. in bold. This is what matters the most. I hope that many people will share their inspiration and insight from Boston.
