A winter in paradise: Mexico

“For last year's words belong to last year's language. And next year's words await another voice.”  T.S. Eliot

Here's to the beginning of another year of traveling.   How I have not ever chosen to do a January vacation is beyond me!  The extra boost of Vitamin D right when you are hitting the winter blues was the perfect cure to these cold nights.

Breast Cancer Awareness

It's been quite some time since I've postsed last and I've had such a wonderful journey--more of that to come!  For now, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, I'm choosing to celebrate my mother.  Below are some highlights of our journey (so far!) this month in fighting for a cure.


Cape May Dragon Boat Race
Always an inspiration, my mother competes on a team comprised of soley cancer survivors.  These women are armazing showing the world that cancer won't slow them down.



 Intermission included a 60's themed dance party!  It worked--they won the "Spirit Award" at the festival!



 The Team


Luminosity 5K
In honor of my mom, her co-worker put together a Luminosity 5K for her with all proceeds going to her Dragon Boat team.  The team makes blankets and then hand delivers them to chemo agencies in the area.  The first Annual Luminosity 5K was complete with candle-lit milk cartons anchoring glow in the dark balloons lighting the path and plenty of glow sticks and black lights to go around.  We had 70+ people turn out and raised over $1400!  Thanks to all!







 Philadelphia International Dragon Boat Race
The ladies competing in their last race of the season!
 Only in Philly would the Mummers show up to entertain us :)  And if you have no idea, come to Broad Street New Years Day!

 Shannon and mom enjoying the sun and 86 degree October day!


Caught someone napping!
