Have I told you how very special these two women are in my life? Lila and Jamie are my two beloved managers at Passionflower It's been almost a year since Becky (who we miss every day) left us and, I have to say, those were some big shoes to fill and they've done the job admirably. And without them, I wouldn't be down here in Oaxaca doing art and food tours. When you've been doing this as long as I have (20 plus years), it's really important to have some time to jumpstart the creative juices and charge the batteries. So, a way big thank you to my wonderful managers and really to my whole staff for taking such good care of the store while I'm here in Oaxaca.
