Elephants on Parade Skirt

What's so super about it?

There was an armadillo at school today. The kids were screaming; they had never seen one before, especially here in Vallarta.

That's the State Animal of Texas y'all!

Just this morning I learned that the Playa Los Muertos is named because of all the bodies that were strewn on the beach from a war over silver and gold in the late 1880s between pirates and the natives.

And this was where I ended up this evening. I wasn't the only one, the whales showed up too... It's amazing what you can almost miss if you aren't paying attention.

The Primaries are being held in Texas today, and while I'm not a Republican I thought I would wear my elephant skirt in political spirit. I'm also wearing it because I adore Lauren, my friend who gave it to me. I get so many compliments when I wear this skirt and the kids like it.

In many cultures, elephants with their trunks pointing up symbolize good luck. The trunks on my skirt are not pointing up, but they are joined together... I wonder what that means?

Lucky in l♥ve???
