you never know ...

... until after the fact.

call me scrooge

... i don't really care ....

is my mind on an island? perhaps on hispaniola?

regardless! this season always leaves me in a 'tizzy. and because of the timimg of my trip, and the holidays, i am SO unprepared!

but, it's okay. seriously. finally, i feel like i have an excuse for not being ready.

i am never ready. i am more of a go with the flow kind of girl.

and, if an inflatable snowman is dancing in my head, so be it .... !

all my pictures are over here.

the photos are on snapfish. if you can't connect to the link, please let me know and i will send you an invite.

this is my favorite picture from my trip to the domenican republic. this photo was taken in batay 7, not too far from barahona. i was really hoping for just a landscape, but it's virtually impossible to take any photos without a child, or group of children, jumping into the photo. but, as luck has it, this photo wouldn't be my favorite without this little girl in her swinging dress in yellow.

the trip was fabulous. the only drawbacks were bug bites and bichos. aside from that, all was good.

i have not resettled though. this time of year feels a bit rushed and pressured. how do i deal with that? oh ... i stand like a dear in the headlights, "hit me baby !".

i have many more pictures ... all the rest are over here ... all untouched.
