If you have stopped by the blog over the last week or so, you probably know that my hubby and I just celebrated our first anniversary in beautiful Cancun, Mexico. It was my first experience with an all-inclusive style resort, and I must say that I can understand why people rave so much about it. We ate lavishly, drank fruity cocktails till our hearts content, and were surrounded by friendly eager staff.
It was quite the experience; however, it wasn’t always the most comfortable. You see, I have an awful time just relaxing. Between working, volunteering, blogging, being social, and being a good “housekeeper,” I find myself with very little downtime. Needless to say, 5 days of none of the above left me a bit squirmy, but I somehow found a way to manage :) In fact by day 3, I had fallen in love with relaxing. My favorite spot on the resort was a cozy little cabana overlooking the infinity pool and beach. I cozied up there everyday and pleasure read, which I haven’t done in forever! I was able to finish the book Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet and finally started reading The Shades of Grey trilogy (after much prompting from my friends). I have been very reluctant, but I must say that it is the perfect easy read for a romantic getaway! In between sunbathing, reading, and eating, Jon and I also found ourselves snuggled up in our room finishing one of our favorite TV series, The Wire. I can’t say enough good things about this show, and while it’s not exactly romantic, it seemed fitting that it found its place in our relaxing, lovey-dovey weekend. I’m smiling just thinking about it!
Yes, it was a blissful couple of days, but now I’m having a hard time readjusting to the hustle and bustle of my “normal” life. Hopefully, I can hit the ground running tomorrow, but for today, I am relishing in my last few hours of rest and relaxation and still day dreaming of the beach.
Here are some of my favorite pics from our trip.
Do you have any favorite beach spots? Any annual summer trips? I’m thinking that we may make a beach trip an annual tradition for our anniversary and am already ready to plan our trip next year!!
