hola!

it would make a much more interesting vacation story if i could tell you what miseries were had on our vacation to the grand palladium resort in punta cana, dominican republic. the terrible flight delays, the hotel switching rooms, the bars serving watered drinks, the restaurant food not only disgusting but sickening as well...

but the truth of it is, would you mind seeing this view off the end of your toes during the middle of the week? tropical turquoise caribbean waters and sugar-sand beaches?
and don't i look really stressed out with that pina colada melting away in the warm sun?

no snarky comments about my luminous whiteness, please.

and the cafe con leche, served up hot and fresh each morning? ugh! simply awful.

the view from the room was miserable and disappointing...as was the dark and cramped room...
if i told you the truth about our relaxing vacation, you'd be bored to tears and back again. everything was so nice, pleasant, wonderful and happy! that is, except for the lingering blistering sunburn on t's chest and shins. ugh.

glad to be home (to daughter with the flu) and excited to catch up on y'all's blogs! i'll post more photos soon.

p.s. t is opposed to me posting the "half-nude" photo of myself. any other objections? now, tell the truth!

Wow! Looks sooo beautiful! and I had a cafe con leche in a Dominican cafe in Washington Heights once and it was delicious. Must have been a wonderful time you two had. And as for your skin tone? I'm right there with you sister! I'm so pasty, I almost glow in the dark.

susan-- the coffee was rich and delectable. good to know i have pale-faced sisters out there.

Welcome home! I'm pasty, too, but my thighs aren't as toned as yours clearly are, so that's my only objection. You look so darned RELAXED...how lovely. :)
