As I write this, I’m looking out the window at my very first Chicago snow. The flakes are swirling in the air and my kitty cat is quite perplexed by this new phenomenon. This ain’t Miami anymore, Max!
It’s warm and cozy inside, and like every good Caribbean resident-of-a-foreign-land, I have a variety of houseplants making the casa seem almost tropical. And I’m listening to parang, the Christmas music of my homeland. Feeling a little homesick, to be perfectly honest.
I have a slew of holiday gift guide posts to write and awesome items to give away, products to review and e mails to send…but in the early morning hours of tomorrow I leave for the Dominican Republic — going to the wedding of two of our best friends! So I may not get around to those things until next week. Instead of snow flurries past the window, I’ll be watching waves crash on a sandy beach, while I sip a fruity cocktail. CANNOT WAIT!
I’m for sure going to take LOTS of photos. And I’m taking a little (though much-needed) break away from the computer, too. I’ll be back next week with a batch of fresh new posts for you!
