Mexican Crudite from the Riviera Maya

Hey Everybody! Kathy here! It has been a crazy but wonderful week! We just got back from our girls trip and it was simply amazing! I was relaxed and at peace and completely surrended to the beauty and tranquility around me. I was so looking forward to bringing that feeling home with me. But as they say it was my last hoorah before opening my Pilates Studio.

My head is swimming and I’m going kinda crazy to get to an end in all of the preparation and planning of opening a business …. and a beginning to Lift Pilates Experience! So I lost my tranquility but I did bring back my new favorite crudite dish and I’m happy to share it with you!

Enjoy and listen closely for the sound of the ocean waves and the gentle beach breeze on your face, I know I will!

  2. Hello there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you
    using for this site? I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had problems with
    hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
