Puerto Rico was a fantastic place for our wedding, and rather enjoyable for the extended honeymoon stay as well.  While the wedding portion of the trip was spent on the island of Vieques, part of our honeymoon was spent in old San Juan.  Of course, we had to hit up the museums and galleries… read more.

My Friday blogging goal is to write about someone/something that inspires me.  I have been a bit stifled by this topic over the past two weeks (during which time my goal was not met, for which I’ve already forgiven myself!).  I know that my standstill is about limitations I have placed… read more.
