{Mexico-Zihuatanejo}

Over Christmas, I spent a lovely time in Mexico. My parents were renting a condo down in Zihuatanejo so I joined them. Highlights? Strolling into town and buying fruit & veggies from the mercado; buying little Mexican crafts, such as gorgeous Virgin de Guadalupe/Christmas banners, pinatas, little nascimentos etc...; walks down to the local beach; swims in the pool; a day sail out on a cat. with my expert Dad/Captain... the list goes on. I think the pictures tell the story:

{aesthetically, I just love the Virgin of  Guadalupe icon--check out this funky bag I got in the market. Perfect for market shopping or a day at the beach}

{Santa also gave me this lovely candle in my stocking--because 'he' knew that I loved the aesthetic beauty of the icon. Here it is at home in my kitchen}
