Project365 - Week 6

As you can tell, Mexico is on my mind. We saved up our pennies to take an impromptu vacation with my sister and brother-in-law. Yes, I have to tan for a couple weeks prior to hitting the beach or else I will get really sunburned without that base. With the cold and snow this week, it felt really good getting some vitamin D. Counting the day until Cozumel!
