back in action

we made it home after a relaxing, beautiful anniversary trip to mexico a few days ago & dekel and i both are in action mode with our individual online businesses. we had a blast with each other & tried to soak up as much sun & spanish as we could. we stayed in a resort in san jose, a small town 30 minutes outside of cabo & just took a bus into the city when we had activities, like whale-watching and snorkeling. we also went to the market a few times & loved just walking up and down the cabo marina. we each gained about 5 pounds, but those margaritas, pinas & tacos were well worth it! mexico, we will be back :)

on another note, mirelle & i were the sour melan was accepted to be a vendor at the 1st annual wildflower festival in kemp, texas on april 12th. we couldn't be more excited to participate & really hope it will be a success! but an upcoming event (especially when we have never done this before and have no idea what to expect) requires a lot of work, in addition to making tons of product to take with us to sell at the festival. we must find a gazebo or tent for our booth, design a collage of our customers representing our products, figure out the layout for our booth and get tables, chairs & all other necessary items. i hope this opens the doors to many more festivals & many more business collaborations for the sour melan

but for now, i will leave you with a few a shit ton of photos from our cabo trip :)
