I just returned from a fabulous vacation cruising on the Celebrity Equinox for 11 nights. My gratitude meter is sky high!  I enjoyed great food, interesting ports of call, fabulous fun with my travel mates and uninterrupted Mommy time with daughter India.

The highlight of the trip for me was visiting South America which had long been on my bucket list. We spent two glorious days in Cartagena, Colombia, but also visited Cozumel, Costa Rica, Panama and Grand Cayman.

Part of the joy of visiting that part of the world is the sheer beauty of it. One of my strongest memories of this trip is that flowers seemed to be everywhere. While I will hold those colorful memories close to my heart, if they begin to fade, I can always turn to my quilt Give Yourself a Flower Garden for a memory jolt of just how good life is.

When was the last time you checked something off your bucket list?

  1. Just returned in March from Panama Canal and some of the same ports as you. Have had a long hiatus from quilting but am now more energized to complete UFO’s and begin new projects. Viewing your beauiful handwork always gives me a lift. Keep on quilting!
