Es Vedra & Christmas in July.

Howdy friends! 
Remember that one time that I decided on a whim that a huge bloggy gift exchange would be totally awesome? And that I would call this huge bloggy exchange Christmas in July? Well... I'm makin' it happen, and two awesome girls have offered to help me out. You can visit them here and here (and you can see their pretty faces in the picture below).
Anyway, I'm going to open up registration for this on Monday. There will be more details then, but until then, just know this: 

It's a blogger gift exchange with a budget of $10-$20. Everyone is welcome to participate, and if you're international, you will be matched with someone on the same continent so as to reduce shipping costs. 


So... make sure you come back on Monday to sign up! This is just a heads up to let you know that it will be happening!!

Moving on... 

Once upon a time, I went to Ibiza, Spain and told you about a few of the things we did. I skipped a lot of other things, though, and I'd love to document them, so here's one of them. 
Es Vedra


Es Vedra. Some say that it's right next to the tip of the lost city of Atlantis, jutting out of the ocean. Others say that it has spiritual powers. Even if neither of these things is true, it's still an amazing sight, one that is definitely worth the hike (which, by the way, is not long or difficult at all). Fun Fact: It's the 3rd most magnetic place on the face of the earth.
The 1st time we went to Es Vedra - Day 4 in Ibiza

We visited Es Vedra twice, both times at sunset. The first time would have been good, but it started to rain right before the sun started to set, so we missed out. We had heard such good things about this location at dusk, so decided to come back on our fifth day in Ibiza. We did not regret it - not one bit.
Husband took this amazing shot.



Es Vedra was probably one of my favorite things about this little island, and there was definitely something magical about it. 

What is your favorite natural landmark??

Ooh Christmas in July! Too good to be true! This island is so beautiful, I would love to think that it was the tip of Atlantis (which reminds me of the movie). For me, my favorite landmark(s) is just D.C. It's so beautiful and perfect.
