Like Fiona Apple sang in the 90s: I’ve been a bad, bad girl.
Well, okay, not THAT bad! Not felonious or anything — not in a drown a basket of puppies kind of way — just in the “Oh wow, it’s mid-February and I haven’t posted on my blog since Thanksgiving!” kind of way.
The end of the year kind of got away from me starting with a long weekend trip to Mexico for our friends’ wedding, followed shortly thereafter by a month long trip to France…which then led into me spending the rest of the month of January and into February playing catch up! My News Year’s resolution to post on my blog weekly flew to the curb faster than the one to slow down on my dairy and bread intake. (It’s FRANCE, y’all — how am I supposed to NOT eat fabulous baguette and excellent brie? Seriously!)
So lemme post some pictures to assuage my guilt and follow it with a promise to do better from here on out. That okay?
To start off, these are the Mayan ruins we visited at Tulum, Mexico.
Breathtaking, no? And here is the beach:
We made friends with some of the locals…
And enjoyed this wonderful cenote just down the road at Xel-Ha, which we had completely to ourselves:
You can see why I was too preoccupied to spend much time in front of my computer, right? And France proved to be no less distracting, though in a completely different way. For instance, this is the absolutely charming city of Annecy:
Beautiful, isn’t it? And then the lovely, untouched snow in the mountains at Chamrousse:
We encountered more snow and skiers at Correncon en Vercors:
We spent New Year’s Eve in Paris where I took this very sparkly shot of the Eiffel Tower with a full moon directly above it!
And finally, here is me with my husband posing along the Seine River in Paris with Notre Dame behind us:
Okay, enough travel porn for now, I guess. But you can see why my focus was not really on my blog, can’t you — and forgive my neglect? For I’m back at it now and ready to start knocking your socks off with some new and exciting material! Or something like that. So let me get caught up and just say happy President’s Day today to y’all…and a very belated Merry Christmas and Happy New Year…and a happy MLK Day…and a Happy Ground Hog’s Day…and a Happy Chinese New Year…and an only slightly belated Happy Valentines Day…
Oy, I was gone a long time… 😉
