If They Don't Let You Go to Wales, Go Here Instead.

Cancun isn't a place I'd ever go to in real life. We got to have that once-in-a-lifetime experience of saying "anyplace but here" last week. It doesn't measure up to seeing so many of my favourite people in Wales, but it was still a beautiful, amazing place (with a million tourists). It was so unplanned that we had no expectations, we just went and hung out.

Although random trips out of country are not really my style, my hope for myself is that I be open to gifts that come my way, and not be too mathematical in my measuring of joy vs. sustainability. Trending towards frugality and sustainability, but finding joy (and not freaking out) at the unexpected.

So crazy. Looks like a great time, though: Noah looks like he had a blast!

I'm so sorry we missed you at reunion! Adam was especially sad because you were the only people he knew already! But your photos, especially those of Noah, look like you were able to make the most of a horrible situation. Which is no small feat I'm sure! I love Noah's favorite place! :)

You will have to tell me all about it, perhaps in the new house in CT?

We would love to! You are very welcome to visit any time! We are now conveniently located just 2 hours from Boston. :)
