M is for

is for
Mimosa

My other favorite room in LS's (Little Sister) new house (besides the afore mentioned kitchen) is the screened-in back porch. 
LS's favorite spot in Mexico is Akumal also known as "The Place of Turtles".  This is highlighted in the warm ocean blues of the upholstery and throw pillows of orange, red and cream stripes.  The art that adorns the walls and the brightly striped Mexican hammock that gently sways in the breeze.
This serene spot conjures up lazy days in that far away place.  A favorite hang-out for contemplation, reading and/or watching the very entertaining antics of new puppy Poppy.  This is where we chatted and sipped our Mimosas.  Yes plural!
