Pin of the Week: Displaying Personal Pictures

I’ve always thought that the idea of limiting personal pictures in your home is so weird.

Travel: Iberostar Grand, Montego Bay

For Memorial Day weekend, Pablo and I got away with some friends (that’s right! no kids!) to the Iberostar Grand all-inclusive adults-only resort in Montego Bay, Jamaica.
