i totally forgot to post before i left town but we are in mexico right now. about 1 hour outside of cancun in a cute town called Playa del Carmen. lots of charm and amazing beaches.

my sister Jenna got married here on saturday and the entire family has been here all week swimming, drinking, laughing and making some great memories. we head home tomorrow and while i will be a bit relieved to say goodbye to the extreme humidity, i can't say i will miss my lazy afternoons at the pool, unlimited margaritas and seeing my family every morning. it has been a wonderful trip... despite the fact that i somewhat accidentily hit my brother in the face yesterday and cut his eyebrow open with my wedding ring... ooops, long story....

i will post pictures when i am home, but so far my favorite part was helping out at a trash the dress photo shoot the day after the wedding. i told my sister about this back when she got engaged but i never thought she would be up for it... but she loved the idea and i can't wait to see the results... she is beautiful and her new husband is a charming fire fighter so everyone at the beach thought we were doing a high fashion shoot... it was quite funny.

i also found this amazing shop downtown that has tons of wonderful dia de los muertos stuff. i love it all and think i may be coming home with a handful of skeletons.

in other news, i just bought this lovely kit. i am so excited for my friend KL and wish her only the best. she truely has a wonderful eye for this kind of thing. Congrats Kerry. I am so proud of you and can't wait to play with the kit.

hasta luego amigos!
