Last week in Mexico I went swimming with a dolphin named Chuck.
A few days later, before the dolphin excitement had even worn off, we went on an eco hike on St. John in the US Virgin Islands.
Did you know that St. John is an arid environment? I just assumed it would be wet and I was pretty shocked to discover that it was more like a hike at home in the Rocky Mountains than one in the rainforest. My favorite plant that our tour guide, Jen, talked about was the Moses in the Cradle. I love the deep purple leaves that are mixed in with the green ones.
In addition to swimming and hiking, I've been doing a bit of island-style relaxing with my friends. "When in Rome" right?
So that's what I've been up to lately. Never fear, though, the crafting bug is in me to stay, and I've been thinking up some new projects that I'm excited to start working on and blogging about in the very near future. These ideas involve knitting with super soft yarn, embroidering pretty letters, and stamping away.
Until next time,
