Dark & Stormy...


Can someone please tell me where the first half of December went?  I know I say this every year but I can’t believe Christmas is only 2 weeks away...how did this happen?

For so many months we’ve been planning and saving for our upcoming Bali trip and I can’t believe that I’ll be on a plane this Saturday (yeah!) Maybe it’s because this year is extremely non-traditional that it seems to be going by so quickly but even this weekend was over in a flash. From Thursday on it was a blur of relaxing days at the beach, company Christmas parties that got a bit too merry, Christmas lunches with the family, catching up with friends and simply enjoying the absolutely stunning weather that has finally arrived. 

On a side note,the title of this post has nothing to do with the weather but instead is dedicated to my new drink of choice - the beautiful combination of rum and ginger beer that makes up a dark and stormy (and will be consumed beach side in Bali, in large quantity).

Eeeek Bali time is nearly here. Seriously exciting. Our Christmas party is on Friday, but after a very messy one last year (and a very large hangover) I'm steering clear of such cocktails this year. xx

ps. love that first picture. It makes me jealous! xx

Oh my word. It's in the single digits here in the Midwest! Soak it up for those of us foolish enough to live in these climes.

Of course, Bali! I remember when you first mentioned it. That's pretty cool I must say and I bet you will forget all about snow when you're sitting on the beach sipping a margarita :)
