Back in the Saddle Again









It's not that I don't enjoy my life here at home, in the cold, in the gloom. It's just that it's not fair that in some places, it looks like this year round. Why don't I live HERE?

Cabo San Lucas was...amazing. Enchanting. Warm, beautiful, seductively captivating. I didn't want to come back. Except...alas, I missed my babies.
But other than that, I was ready to become a citizen. I think I forgot my phone number, my bank account number, my social security number, and practically my name. I actually learned to speak spanish fluently. My name is now Lila, pronounced Leela, (long e for the i). I eat catus now. It's pretty good.

Here are a few more shots of why I didn't want to come home:
The pool where I spent many hours reading New Moon (again). And below, the view down to the beach from the terrace. Ohhhh...

Since I didn't have access to any of my files while I was there, I couldn't get any work done. (Darn.) So I have spent just about every waking moment since I've been back on the Snazzy Bag pattern for you folks to be able to try out. It's almost done now. Just a few little tweaks.
But it's really hard to concentrate on working, when all I want to do is imagine myself back there.

This is the pizza that I had for breakfast one morning. Then I went for a very long walk on the beach. Very long.

That's me having a delicious Diet Coke in Cabo. It tastes better there.

And By the way...what's up with my frizzed out hair? Humidity and I are not friends.

Mmmm...Guac.
I know this is probably getting boring for ya'll. Sorry. I'll get back to work now. But can you blame me?I just want to thank my dear friends Jackie and Kirk for inviting Hal and I to their unbelievably breathtaking home in Cabo for an entire week. (Here they are, basking in the rays on the beach.)
We couldn't have had more fun, or have been to a more perfect location. It was divine. I owe you guys BIG time.
I could make Jackie another Juicy knockoff...but somehow I don't think that quite cuts it.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing ALL of the photos of your heavenly vacation. That is one amazing place. Since I didn't get to go any where that lovely this year, you gave me a momentary getaway. Glad you had such a great time to revive.

Oh, you lucky duck! We love Cabo, and should have gone there last month for our vacation instead of Walt Disney World!
Where do you stay? We stay at the Sol Mar or Playa Grande, and this looks similar.
Thanks for posting. It looks like heaven compared to all this snow!

Oh, duh! I guess I have to read the whole thing instead of drooling over the pictures! I have to make friends with Jackie and Kirk to get to stay at this lovely place. I think I'm moving to Mexico!

Well it's about time! Ok, I would forgive you if you never came back from there! I would miss you, but I would totally understand. Breathtaking! Ugh! You look very happy and I'm so glad you guys took a little time off to bask in the sun!
I think we need to all pitch in as sisters some time and get a place down there....when we make our millions :). I can't believe that people actually live like that! Wow!
Gald you are back, safe and sound!

Jessica Levitt said...

Wow, I'm totally jealous. I was desperately trying to convince my husband that we should go there for our vacation this year, but I gave up. I did get a nice spa retreat, but no beautiful weather and ocean like that...

Carli said...

Looks wonderful. I could go for a vacation about right now. I am really tired of this cold weather especially after yesterdays snowy weather. it is good to see and hear that you had a wonderful time, you deserve a break from all of the hard work you have put in!

Janis said...

It looks divine -- and warm! I wouldn't want to come back either. :)
