Hello Friends! Did you miss me? I missed you. It felt really strange to not write for a few days and it felt totally liberating too. I enjoyed a real vacation and wanted to savor the moments with my girlfriends and to keep everything private, during the time I was away.
I went on a yoga retreat with one of my very best friends in Cabo, San Lucas, Mexico.
Everything was awesome and words can’t describe the fabulous experience. I am filled with gratitude and came back rested and relaxed and filled with joy.
My parents came to stay with my kids and to support Jeff, getting them to and from school, fed, loved, and to all their appointments. They were so lucky to have 5 days with their grandparents, being spoiled and loved day after day. I was thankful that they took the time to be here and that my kids were well taken care of. I was able to enjoy myself without worry because I knew my job was covered.
Stacey and I have been friends for 18 years, which is hard to believe since we’re only “29.” We both lead busy lives and don’t talk as often as we’d like, but when we get together, it’s like no time has passed at all. It doesn’t matter what we’re doing – we just enjoy each other’s company, sharing stories and laughing and playing together. Being on vacation with her and 8 other girlfriends was just magical. I am so thankful that she invited me to join her in Cabo to create and share more memories together.
We enjoyed doing several hours of yoga each day, listening to the sounds of the ocean and wind, feeling the warmth of the air, and practicing with amazingly strong women. We called ourselves the Yoga Mafia and laughed at the silliness of it all. These girls are amazingly strong, beautiful and graceful yogis.
We ate delicious Mexican food and drank homemade watermelon juice everyday.
We sat by the pool, drank shots together, ate chips and guacamole and enjoyed each other’s company.
We paddle boarded and did yoga on the water in La Paz, even while being scared by jelly fish, puffer fish and sting rays.
We were pampered with outdoor massages in the privacy of our house.
We danced the night away at Cabo Wabo, and danced in the moonlight on the beach until 3 am.
Life is good. Love this life. Love my girlfriends and family and am ever so thankful, especially for my BFF.
Hope you have a wonderful week and take good care of yourself. xo

Thank you Pat. It was a memorable experience, that’s for sure!
Welcome back! So glad you got to go and have such a wonderful time. Cheers!
Thanks Kris – it truly was relaxing and gave me time to be still, in addition to all the other things I described. There was time to do nothing, which is really something and took some time to get used to. 😉
I would love to know what organization you went with, because I want to go TOO! Love the photos.
Lenka – it was a private retreat, so I don’t have any recommendations to share there. There is something called Wanderlust – check out wanderlust.com, but that’s in a HUGE setting with lots of people and there are several locations. I’m glad you loved the photos!! There are a 1000 more! 😉
