I got intimate with a turtle. True story.


This was our view every day. Seriously it took me at least two days to relax and realize that I was on vacation.
 Hello! Man it has felt really good to not blog, or instagram or respond to email for a week. I could really get use to that kind of life. I went to the Gulf of Mexico with O, and our parents. Not a huge group, no kids. Just nice food, great company, ocean views all the time, sunshine and playing in the sand.

Also, the most amazing thing happend while we were watching the sunset on Saturday night. A huge loggerhead turtle came out of the ocean right next to us! She was really straining and slowly made her way up to the sand dune and started digging a hole. We called the department of wildlife and shenanigans and they had some people out to us in less than five minutes. Those turtles are an endangered species and their nests are protected all along the Gulf coast.

We pretty much just ate all the time!
We watched this lady turtle make a nest, lay her eggs!! like we watched her lay her eggs ya'll. Epic. Then she covered it up and made her way back to he ocean. She was guided by the huge super-moon that night, and her passage back to the water was such a huge event on the beach, about 50 people had gathered to marvel at her and applaud when she finally made her way back to the water. Sea turtles are my favoritest animal (next to elephants.) The turtle folks were really excited because even them, who have worked with wild sea turtles for years and years had almost never seen an event like this!


I am happy to be home now, and I am working on getting all of your orders out today and tomorrow. I have been plagued with really intense nightmares since I came home. Like last night I dreamed something so scary that I woke up screaming. I don't even want to tell you what I dreamed, thats how scary it was, it would make you have bad dreams just reading about it.

I had to take a picture of my favorite dinner we had. I love! grilled veggies with meat. Soo good.
Needless to say this morning was a coffee morning, and I am currently on a no sugar, coffee, alcohol  dairy, sugar or grains cleanse. Soooo. Did I mention no sugar? wine? I can't even brownie and red wine myself better. le sigh.

  1. That is so cool that you got to watch a turtle lay her eggs! That just doesn't happen every day.
    All the food looks so yummy. But I, too, need to be on a bit of a cleanse. My skin is crying out for help!

    Good to have you back.
