Slipping these Mexico Memories into this Small Capsule... {Photos!}

These strangers showed up on the web's doorstep and moved in yesterday.

We were warmed by the welcome from a small few neighbors... thank you. It's so good to be here with you.

I hope you don't mind that today is for this cyber time capsule... have you ever done one of those real capsules? I think I did as a child... but couldn't resist opening it much earlier than intended... 

Purpose defeated, I'm sure. 

I was beyond giddy to travel with my kind handyman to the shores of the Mayan Riviera, Mexico just before saying farewell to 2012...

Packing two passports is rare...

Packing one suitcase was unusually fun...

Traveling for this full time job, without him, is part of this season. Goodbyes are all to familiar.. but it makes the "hello's" so much more fun


Here we are with our sandy toes...  breathing in the ocean.

We were delighted to travel with my handyman's family : 9 of us.

Three brothers, one sister and brother-in-law...


The trip exceeded built up expectations of ours...

We could have easily stayed another week on these white shores.




We hardly could stand to pose for even a little while... my poor mother-in-law... I learn patience from her.

Here's where the memories really took off :
















Why a family vacation is so great... according to my kind man active man :

There's always someone to do something with... when his bride likes to take a small break with an eReader.

Slipping this quietly into our cyber time capsule. Eventually burying it deep within this space... reminiscing in due time...


How do you save these beloved moments?
