today was phenomenal as we hit the only tropical forest in the US national forest system - el yunque. muy bonita! we hiked to some gorgeous falls and breathed in the delicious air.
i've included two photos of my puerto rican adventure - one of the lovely wedding cake and another of me shopping in old san juan. the wedding cake was soooo gorgeous that i had to snap a shot and beau took this candid of me shopping away in this ultra european district of puerto rico.
after we returned from our excursion today, i spent 3 hours drafting long overdue e-mails as i had accumulated quite a backlog (my apologies). beau watched that game with some ball that peeps were all excited about while i awaited the always fab performance by prince (ok, he probably needs no link but i thought you would enjoy the photos). oh, and by the way, if you haven't seen him in concert yet, you must. his passion brings tears to my eyes every time as he is a very impressive performer who connects beautifully with his audience.
tomorow we return to dc and i'm homebound until i lead our annual spring blossom retreat the first weekend of march. it's been a fun journey here in puerto rico and i'm very enamored with this island of enchantment (that's what their license plates say) where everyone (especially boys) have impressively groomed eyebrows. come here, you'll immediately see what i mean. ciao for now!
