Isla Mujeres - Here I come!

I am pulling out my suit cases for Mexico!!! My exile is in Missouri is coming to a close and I am gearing up emotionally for island life again. I can hardly wait. My enthusiasm is only dampened over concerns for my mother-in-law who is in fragile health. I'm hoping she'll get strong enough to come visit us. I am trying to convince her to join us on our precarious adventure. My husband thinks it would be too hard for her, but I hope when I am 78 I am doing such exploits! We will arrive on the island prior to high season and hustle to get everything perfect for the onslaught of guests. As usual I am stuffing suitcases with fresh linens, blow dryers, ipod dock alarm clocks, as well as, a few decorative pieces. There is no traveling light in this household.
I am looking forward to baking fresh bread for our guests and my cream cheese and coconut cinnamon rolls. In fact, my mouth is salivating in anticpation of a REAL mango. Somehow they never taste as good here in the States. And I can hardly wait to stride out into the ocean with my fins and snorkel gear in hand. My neighbors are the giant sting ray that is always lounging around my beach, or the cluster of parrot fish that live in caves near by. I can't wait to come a callin!


  1. Do you think I could fit in your suitcase? I would be happy to try <3

  2. How wonderful! I adore the anticipation of and preparation for a journey to a much loved destination. I bet you are there by now and I hope you were greeted by fresh mangoes (I completely know what you mean btw - living in Australia for 12 years taught me what a good mango should taste like!!), a symphony of beautiful fish and a beach basking in sunlight.

    Thank you so much again for your wonderful comment on my 'By invitation only post' - it truly reached my heart and I feel so appreciated. xx


  3. You must be so excited to be returning! Hope your mother in law regains some strength & decides to join you, sounds like a great adventure.
