~I AM BACK!!!!!!!!!!!

OK, wow....I am back......I've been so buy this winter that my blog has suffered a lot!!! I apologize I want to be a good blogger I really do......but being anal and fostering a growing business in a foreign country doesn't allow for a lot of extra time to blog.......yeah I know blah blah blah....get off Facebook and blog and there would be plenty of time to blog! I want to thank a few of my fellow bloggers for motivating me to keep the blog going!! Namaste by Day,Loves of Life, Canadian Chica in Cancun and Motherhood in Mexico~~~Thanks ladies for keeping me motivated!! I love all your blogs and respect you all as hard working young women keeping life fun and light!

So yes I am back~ Lots has happened in the last 12 months. I went through one of the hardest times of my life 12 months ago but now I am proud to say after some butt kicking I am back and better than ever. I came back to myself and decided to do what I love which is being creative and I have built a successful business! I am the designer and owner of Chantel~Vintage Spoon Jewlery.....

I met my now boyfriend of more than a year, our first meeting.........I was less than impressed!! lol,

Our first anniversary at Costa Azul in San Pancho, Nayarit Mexico!

My 31st Birthday with my cutie!!!!

Most of all I am excited about this: I am going to be an Auntie!!!!

This is the beautiful couple that are the proud parents of this little bean!!! My brother Marcus and his beautiful wife Kelsie. They had their wedding here in Puerto Vallarta in 2009

My brother Gavin finally landed himself a pretty suave job in Seattle!! I will be flying up to visit the end of this month! Can't wait to spend a few days at his place in downtown Seattle!!! mom and dad's business Manntiques is ROCKING!!! So proud of these two, couldn't have better role models and mentors to help me along the way......I am one lucky girl!!!!

Ok, my first blog back to catch you all up~ Stay tunned as I have some more exciting news to share soon!!!




  1. Hello,

    When I first started by blog "Living in Nayarit" I came across yours and wondered if we would ever here from you again. Glad to see you've picked up the reins again.

    I will be living two hours North of Vallarta near a small fishing village called San Blas and was excited to find a fellow blogger that lived somewhere close to me.

    When I go to the states I fly in and out of the PV airport and usually end up staying in PV for a night or two. I have a sister in law who lives about 10 min from the airport.

    Sounds like you've had a wonderful past year and can't wait to hear what lays ahead.

    Your friend and fellow blogger Trinidad

  2. Welcome back!! I like Trinidad came across your blog when I started my own. I am located in La Barca, Jal. Congrats on becoming a new Auntie!! Soo glad that you are back and that we get to hear about your new adventures.

  3. Amiiiiigaaaa!!!! I love it!! I am so happy you are back, but I feel connected to you through good ole' facebook so I'm happy not all was lost!! LOL!!!

    I am soooo excited for you about your growing business - every time I see your things I fall in love. I don't have a creative bone in my body...I really, really don't. So I am always so impressed and envious (in a good way) of people like yourself!! You go girl!!!

    Also, YAY for the last year. No??

    Seattle will be a blast - I just love it there. Downtown Seattle is beautiful and love visiting the fresh markets!!!

    Can't wait for your next blog, xoxox from Cancun :)
