A little Mexican calm juice

What if we just said “yes” to a few more things in our lives that get our juices flowing and our spirits calming? For me, that juice is the nectar of the sun during a few fabulous Mexican days. With this trip I bought at least a year's worth of Mexican calm and gifted it to my family upon my return.


On Super Bowl Sunday I dropped an entire apple pie in my oven - in the crack between the door and the oven to be exact. I smiled, scooped up what I could and said "we can clean the rest up later." My husband John said, "no big deal, now we have apple crisp." Our friend Dean said, "I would not be that calm if that had happened to me." I laughed and thought "Pura Vida (the good life)" and thanked God for the little Mexican calm juice that is still flowing through my veins.

Sigh. Pura vida, indeed. I love the new look. :-)

ahhh... Don't we all have those terrible moments??? Good for you, being so calm about it. I'm always proud of myself when I can do that (it doesn't happen very often!).

So let me get this straight. For orange juice, I go to Florida. For calm juice, I head to Mexico. Any idea where I need to go for hair juice?
