Mexican Retreat

While my wild and crazy days may be well behind me, my life with two kids includes some wild and crazy moments of its own.  Albeit, a very different rated G kind of wild and crazy.  Most recently, I’ve been finding myself mentally transporting to a place of “calm” when things are at their most hectic. Usually, this calm involves flashbacks of a recent child-free vacation to Mexico: beach, sand, cocktail(s), good food, good company and PEACE.  So today, I’m taking it one step further and physically bringing some “Mexico Love” into my day.

I’m feeling muy bueno already.
