Is it too much to go from bitching about how hard I am struggling to be awesome to show you pictures of my awesome vacay? Hope not! Anyway here we go.
|View from our nice private patio where we worked out every day. 100 squats a day keeps your booty ok!|
|simple, elegant, restful and stylish|
This trip was my Christmas gift to O. He has had a very busy year, and has been working day and night. I could tell that he needed some time away, in a place with slow internet, and no kid or gutters, or dishes or making dinner....
|tequila shots in bed. YASSSSSSSS|
|Imagine the breeze rusting through the palm trees, the sound of the ocean, the scent of that amazing Mexican detergent (I love that stuff, what is it?) and cool sheets to lay your sun tired body on. ahhhhhhhh|
We stayed in our favorite spot, this is our second visit to Encantada Tulum and just one of many more we hope. Its a no-kids-allowed total relaxation, quiet, romantic, amazing place. We booked at the last minute so we were lucky to even have a room available since this property only has eight rooms. It was heaven. We love the staff there too, they are all so sweet. When we were leaving we just couldn't get out the door, it was just teasing and laughing and joking and we had to hug everyone.
|We always choose the same beach chairs and we think of them as "ours" now. Nice view huh. At night we sit here too and the stars above are amazing! You can see soooo much.|
|Carlos kept bringing me different drinks. My favorite though is the Mezcal Margarita on the rocks.|
I am so grateful to my wonderful parents who take Alia when we need to get away. We facetime as much as we can and my mom sends me status reports (you know, what poops she had and how she slept and what cute new things she is doing like giving all the dogs a hug. Yes... hugs for dogs it is indeed heartbreakingly cute.)
|I mean, how am I not there right now. I love love love all the palm trees. O does too. Natch.|
|We did get to zip along in this little pretty. We were supposed to snorkel and see a nature preserve but I got seasick. Boo. It was so much fun just being on the water though.|
