Feeling refreshed - my vacation part 1

I can't even begin to explain how wonderful these past few days have been. I am sorry I have not been around much, but I really needed to take some time off to recharge my batteries as well as spend some quality time with my family.

Hubby, Leela, brother (and his wife), Mom, Dad and I will be spending the next few weeks traveling throughout South America. 


Even though it is fall over here, the weather is still very hot and extremely humid. It is warmer than spring time in San Francisco, that's for sure. The water in the pool felt oh so very refreshing. My feet were tickled with joy!

The food is absolutely wonderful and fresh. Look at this amazing steak, served hot and sizzling, with sauteed onions and fried eggs. I can't even describe the explosion of flavors in my mouth when I had my first bite. Can't wait to try to make this at home!


And because it has been so hot, you tend to crave lighter foods, such as salads ! Fresh cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, olives, organic eggs and my favorite: hearts of palm!!!



Leela has also been able to get some good R&R as well (and I must say she was a doll on the 14 hr. plane ride):


And South America is full of handmade goodies!!! I will be back later this week to share some amazing things that I have found!!!



I hope all is well with all of you!!! XOXO's
