Linger: to remain or stay on in a place longer than is usual or expected, as if from reluctance to leave; to dwell in contemplation, thought or enjoyment.

I spend most of last week, lingering in Mexico, on a beautiful resort near Cancun, on the Mayan Rivera with some lovely friends.

We lingered at the pool. Happy hour (2 for 1 drinks) anyone?

We lingered over dinner ... and then over dessert

yep, that is me licking the dessert dish ...

We lingered over Bibles, books, games and knitting (for me, at least).

seriously amazing book: One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp

We lingered on the beach

My beautiful friend, Lindsay
We didn't really linger at Chichen Itza (Mayan ruins and one of the Seven New Wonders of the World) but we did go there and it was cool.

We lingered in friendship, evolving and growing

We lingered jumped before and exploding sunset.

the pictures of which are not on my camera =)

I did record a list of blessings while I was there (#1243 - #1311) but I don't want to rub it in and be long winded. Needless to say, it was an amazing, relaxing, wonderful trip and when it was over, I got to fly home to my love and my cute doggie. =)
