close to heaven...

I want to apologize to all my dear readers and blogging friends for my lack of posting and also for being so away of checking your blogs and comment. As well I want to thank all the expressions of concern and affection that many sent me.
Due to some circumstances I’ve been very busy with short time for blogging.

Sister Seeker and her husband arrived, safe and well and I got fantastic gifts which included this gorgeous pair of studded sandals and a fabulous top that I didn’t wear yet.

Meanwhile, we, Hubby and I, came to mainland and now we’re on holidays at a great Mountain SPA called H2otel (I love the name) on Serra da Estrela.

It’s interesting the duality of the islander in me that makes me miss the sea and my inner goat (I’m a Capricorn you know...) which feels the mountain in a special way.

We’re having a great time, being very well treated. Being the only vegetarian for now at the hotel, the chef made me a special menu for the entire week that was taken to my approval.

We’re spending most of our day time at the gym and the pool. The night is for dinner and to spend an enjoyable time on the bar, chatting.

So I think you’ll understand my absence...
However I’ll try to do some posts and go visit you all on the opportunities that I would have.

And I’ll be back soon with a great giveaway!!!! Don’t miss it!!!

For the time being, I leave you with some pictures of the day I arrived and last night outfits.

Take care and enjoy your time the most!!!

    How is the island?

    Well the weather has finally gotten hotter than usual here in the US, and especially here in Southern California. The sunsets are looking breathtaking, and the energy is definitely out.
