I'm Thankful

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! (I was late getting this posted... I actually started writing it on Thanksgiving morning!)

I'm back from a mini break to Cancun! John and I went on a 5 day trip to Mexico as one last hurrah before his surgery next week. For those of you keeping track - John finished his chemo and radiation about 5 weeks ago and has been getting better and better (both physically and emotionally) ever since. He is feeling much more like himself again and we were so glad we got to enjoy a relaxing vacation together before he starts to feel like crap again.

We stayed at the Westin in the hotel zone in Cancun and it was beautiful :)

We relaxed by the pool, relaxed on the beach, relaxed in our room.... you get the idea.

I did alot of this:
Relaxing in style

and John did alot of this:

I started a new sock while I was down there - because really - you need a new sock when you go on vacation!

We only left the hotel once - to see some of the shopping areas. We bought some souveniers and stuff - but the best thing I took home with me - are the memories of a great trip.

Sunset is a magical time

Here we are flying into the sunset...


Until next time - Adios amigos!

Looks like Mr. Java is sporting a vacation beard. This according to Mr. Spice is truly the hallmark of a good vacation. I so glad that you both had a great time. Will be praying for upcoming surgery and Jon's continued recovery.

I'll be sending lots of healing thoughts for the surgery.
