YES! Celebrate365.com is open for business … but no shipping until mid-March.
This is our sixth year wintering in the Yucatán. We are renting a beach home for seven weeks and are “living the life”. Temps have been in the mid-80s with sunshine nearly every day.
Slow roast chicken pieces in banana leaves & marinate in sour oranges
with achiote spices. It is a Yucatán speciality. It is traditionally served with pickled onion. Here is it presented with wedges of sour orange. A hollowed onion serves as a serving vessel filled with the pickled onion bits.
Panuchos are a light snack or breakfast dish. Another
traditional Yucatán creation, these are tortilla filled with black beans. Then they are topped with fresh vegetables. Here we have lettuce, cabbage, shredded turkey, tomato, pickled red onion, English cucumber, avocado.
Follow our lazy days on the beach … away from Ohio’s cold and snow. And look for previews of the 2017 lines in the coming days. I am editing the web site to reflect current inventory levels and I am indicating styles that have been discontinued. Feel free to ask me questions … I am “connected”!
Still have room on the tree? We can help! Celebrate365.com still has a large stock of European artisan-crafted ornaments. Why not give yourself a gift?
In addition, the shop will be closing soon for the winter. We will be leaving behind the Midwest’s winter cold in favor of sun and sand in Mexico’s Yucatan peninsula. We will be away for 7 weeks and the store will be closed during that time.
Follow this blog as well as the Celebrate365 Facebook page to see what life is like for us in the Yucatan area. I taught high school Spanish for 26 years but I never envisioned a retirement perk quite like this!

Thirty-five Oscar nominations and eight actual Academy Awards along with 1100 movies in her five-decade career … it’s not surprising that Edith Head became synonymous with Hollywood’s “Golden Age” of movies. The iconic costume designer “dressed” dozens of actresses such as Grace Kelly, Elizabeth Taylor and Audrey Hepburn. Among Hollywood costume designers, Edith Head remains the queen!
One of the perks of being a retired Spanish teacher is avoiding Ohio’s frigid winter. For the fifth time, my husband and I are heading south to the Progreso – Chicxulub coast of Yucatan, Mexico. This year, we will be spending seven weeks enjoying sunshine, sand and hammocks!
Mother Nature seems to be having a little laugh at our expense this morning though. Seems our 6:30 AM flight from Dayton to Detroit was delayed. Delta has re-booked us later this morning through Atlanta and we are scheduled to arrive in Merida, the regional capital, just before midnight. Keep your fingers crossed on our behalf!
This year, I have opted to leave the store open for browsing and pre-ordering. BUT, be aware … the products are in Ohio while I’m on the beach in Mexico. I will not be able to ship any orders until my return in mid-March.
