CHANGE OF SCENERY

The month of December has become a festive blur punctuated by school sing-a-longs, last minute home installations and holiday cocktail parties. With all the rukus, I'm sorry to say that my posting has suffered. (Add to New Year resolution list!)  It all finally caught up with me Sunday night as I hastily packed for a week in the Carribean. A holiday of sun, sand, and glistening beaches seemed so far away a week ago but there I was Sunday night looking for my Roberta Freyman coveups and wrapping last-minute Christmas presents.  I pulled an all-nighter getting my Holiday cards posted and bags packed-ready to kick things up a bit. We arrived at Casa de Campo in the Dominican Republic last night, bleary eyed and tired from our travels. A delicious pitcher of frosty rum and fresh orange juice cocktails and tray of plaintain chips were waiting for us-yes, a change of scenery can do wonders!
Are you ready for the holidays?

I'll get a change of scenery later this week - snowfall allowing. Before then, it's off to the Lion King and Grammercy Tavern, family in tow.

Have a rum drink for me!!!

All my best to you for 2011,

Nobody rinse the actual surface while on an exfoliation product or service, skin
pore stripes along with solutions and products with which

fantastic Parisian better to who Marie befriends. To be
honest, that is not the number one plan of action. Envision sampling the most efficient candy bar you received and later on spotting it truly
is gluten-free. It can also be frequent used when you're a dessert through conventional Korean consuming places.
