My sister was beeeooooteeeful. As you can see! Her dress was very Arwen, with gorgeous trailing sleeves and beading.
We headed to Brasso Seco for a hike. I love the picture of the van full of anthuriums. The forest was so GREEN, and Max and Khalil bonded and sped along. Max is such a good hiker now compared with how he used to be! I had a crayfish pedicure: they picked under my toenails and it's WEIRD! When the big ones came along I said 'yowch!' and ran away! The hike was a great battery-recharge for me, and it was so good to hang out with Kelly.
And then, we came back home. Max was a great traveller, carrying heavy bags and being responsible. It's good to be home, despite colds and rain. I'm just beginning to catch up here, and have a few exciting new projects which all begin next week! I'm going to have to be VERY organized and focused, but I'll let you know how it all goes.
