off, to the philippines!

Picture 1

well friends, it’s that time again.  VACATION TIME!!!!  dlb and I are packing up our bags, again, and flying off to the Philippines tomorrow!  in the middle of this grey month of November, I couldn’t ask for a better 10 day vacation than a trip to see my Dad, complete with sunshine and warmth.  we’re looking forward to laying on the beach, snorkeling for me, scuba diving for dlb, and lots and lots of amazing fresh fish and mangos to eat.

I didn’t schedule anyone to guest blog since the week of Thanksgiving is typically pretty dead around blog world, so I’ll pop in if I get the chance to share some beachy photos with you.  I’ll be back here on December 1, have a wonderful Thanksgiving friends!
