First thing on my mind this morning is… shucks, I missed getting Monday Musings out yesterday! As I cut myself some slack after a fun filled busy week, (shared with my gal pal, Mel, visiting from LA) my next thoughts are detox and diet, LOL.


My post today is random… a couple of weeks in pics and more.

Time with visiting friends and family is always eagerly anticipated as we’ve decided to live in a land far, far away (for Mel it was all of 2 hours). We’ve created an awesome community of friends in our new hometown, who are quickly becoming like family, for which I’m grateful. The past two weeks brought together family/friends from the past and present ~ I’m honored, blessed and simply tickled pink.

I’m reminded of my blessings when:

Friends from the Seattle invite us to their Thanksgiving feast for the 3rd year in a row, YUM!


An impromptu concert erupts on our deck, wow! Muchas gracias to Los Ambienteros ~ Geo, Latcho and Andrea… so kind!



Check out their CD and enjoy!

We had other friends visit from Canada, with whom we shared many good times. Sadly,  we just couldn’t connect with another friend. Karen, we’ll see you next time!

Last night we were invited to dinner with new friends, dining in a lovely garden with twinkly lights overhead,  serenaded as the fellas got their groove on. WOW!

We took a few excursions with friends from Canada and the states, to Punta de Mita, Sayulita, Rincon de Guayabitos and San Pancho.

Feather earrings made locally and sold on the beach.


Kids love playing in boats.


Turtle waving hello as we sailed by.


 Whales spouted and played in the distance.


The sun said goodnight with an awesome light-show.


Music on the beach.


Wonderful store in Sayulita. Their offerings are grand and I adore their displays!


Always on my mind is our inn, Amor del Mar, which gets more and more exciting each day as we bring it all together. Tiles are going in, walls are getting finished and ready for paint and so much more… we’re so excited!

Took the inaugural walk up our ‘stairway to heaven’ masterfully crafted by Ramon. Beats the heck out of climbing a ladder in my flips flops. Yippee Skippee!


LOVE this color combo.

The past two weeks included music, lots of music, always music in our lovely pueblo, sunset cruises, whale watching and turtle sightings, giving thanks and breaking bread with friends, excursions to little seaside villages around our Bay of Banderas… and more!


My hubby worked more than me this past week as Mel and I goofed off. Now it’s time for movie nights and rest as I pamper my love and get back to… can I call my life reality?


As I end my random musings, a quick plug:

Please consider contacting us when you are ready for a vacation in paradise. Our 3 bedroom fully equipped condo is available for a week in February. Beyond that, send us your dates and we’ll get right back to you with avaiability.


View from the kitchen sink.

I’ll keep you posted on progress at the Inn. Our first guests arrive the last week in February ~ woo hoo!

PS: Thinking Christmas? A wonderful gift for the gals in your life, check out this wonderful skin enhancing product our good friend, Melanie, has created.

Have an INSPIRING week.


Inspire someone today!

Not feeling it? Be Kind, Be Generous, BE LOVE!
