~ The Getaway Part VI: A Miniskirt ~

We saved the sweetest stop for last on our Mexico trip: the candy store. Filled with confections I only believed were of my dreams, we pranced around like giddy niños, sampling nuts and taking mad guesses as to what things could possibly taste like.

My final sewing project, a high elastic waisted skirt, fit the occasion perfectly. It happily flounced about with me through the aisles, it's bright colors inspiring me to stick with the rainbowy sweets to take home.

Portland was rainy as usual when we got home the following day, but all of these photos have brought the warmth, flavor and feel of our trip back to me. Thanks again to Karin, Ed & Christian for the fantastic time, and buen viaje home!
