Why Fiesta on May 5th ?

Do we really need a reason to celebrate Cinco de Mayo?  Is it just a day to enjoy Mexican food, tequila, or a margarita? What is the reason for all the fuss?  Well, as an expat living in the country of Mexico, we have learned that the people love each other, music and most importantly…

State of Bliss

Many things put me in a state of BLISS; a road trip with my windows down, hair blowing while music blaring, hanging out with friends, getting a Spa treatment, ocean breezes, sunsets, children laughing, reading a good book, blogging,  watering the lawn, watching birds flutter around in the bird bath, good chocolate, great conversations, sweet…

Timely Lessons

All that is needed is a basket of balls, clubs and proper shoes to begin my timely golf lesson with Romero.  Care to travel in my cart across the lush green expanse…. all a glitter with morning dew?  My used set of Big Bertha Gallagher clubs should lift any stubborn ball up and away…hopefully NOT…
