I recently returned home from a week long Mexican vacation and let…me… just… say…, I needed that break. It had been five plus years since my husband and I had gone on a truly relaxing vacation. If anyone is doing the math, it was pre-kids. We are not that couple that was timid about leaving our children, it was completely circumstantial. We moved to Minneapolis when I was pregnant with Oliver and then purchased our first home, which we’ve been updating relentlessly ever since. Then came Stella and poof, it’s been five years since we were able to sleep in, have a conversation that wasn’t about packing lunches or paying bills, and actually feel like a kid again ourselves. While I pride myself on having a decent eye for taking photos there is literally no wrong way to capture paradise. I dug through my numerous photos of sunsets and ocean waves and decided to share some of my favorites here!
My family and I took this trip to celebrate my parents milestone wedding anniversary and we traveled to numerous places throughout our stay. Our hit list included Cancun, Playa del Carmen, Cozumel, Isla Mujeres and Tulum. It was truly a trip to remember and this mama has returned to below freezing temps in Minneapolis with a gracious smile and a rejuvenated attitude. Here’s to starting off 2018 right!
