Well, I should really be finishing the unpacking what with the baby sleeping, homeschooling done for the day, and kiddos playing happily with Daddy in the pool....but, alas, such a perfect atmosphere for blogging. Unpacking can wait, I say!
So many fun things to write about!
First, Cole has made a full recovery. Thanks for all your well wishes on his behalf.
Secondly, have you been to Mexico?? Do you know that smell? That delicious smell that to me says, "Ahhh. Mexico." I've been trying to pay attention and pinpoint exactly what is involved in this fabulous combination of olfactory delights. It's not a floral smell, like Hawaii. It's a much richer, earthier, muskier fragrance that almost has a texture to it. Let me try to describe:
It's a blend of ocean and burning organic material, with a touch of exhaust and leather furniture, carne asada on an open grill, a splash of mildew, and a healthy undercurrent of warm dirt.
Do you know this smell I speak of?
