"Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow"

-- Melody Beattie

During this time of the year I am reminded of how abundantly blessed I am to have such great family members and friends in my life! Thanksgiving serves as a perfect reminder of how fortunate we truly are -- even with the difficult economic times we are currently experiencing! Here's to a wonderful holiday filled with fun, food, festivities and good fortune! 
After munching on turkey legs and stuffing our pie-holes with stuffing, I hope the following gallery of photos taken in South America can fill up the remaining cracks and crevices! Nearly one year ago, I was privileged to travel with my family to the culturally rich country of Peru. The climax of the adventure was, unequivocally, the time we spent in Machu Picchu -- a holy experience which has no measure! Hope these images transport you to a land you've always longed to discover or reconnect you to a place you already consider a highlight of your travels!

Now go and explore!
