My current view, looking through the window to my patio, is a stark contrast to the one below.. .  It's snowing!

Our Thanksgiving weekend was spent in Mexico, or as it is deservedly referred to in our family, paradise. Palmilla, a One and Only property, is a favorite location for a heavenly vacation..

Last year, a hurricane forced the resort to close, and our Thanksgiving trip was cancelled as a result. They didn't reopen until March of this year! The upgrades and renovations are certainly noticeable, but our favorite things about the resort ~ the comfortable and luxurious feel, the impeccable service ~ remain the same.

Her baby follows close behind...







If you follow the path above, it leads to the pool below. I never got a good pic of my own, but here's a wonderful image from their website... It's worth sharing :)







Agua, a bar and restaurant...


During the day, staff can be seen gathering petals and leaves in their baskets...

Each night, while we are at dinner, the turndown service includes a lovely floral design on the bed!



It actually rained much of the time we were there, but we were happy to be together. Vacations feel different after your children move out! 



Hope your Thanksgiving weekend was relaxing and joyful.
