We stayed at an all inclusive resort in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. It was absolutely the best thing we have ever done. Ever. It was gorgeous, relaxing, and absolutely everything we could have ever wanted in a honeymoon.
The first night when we got in we just walked around on the beach, then had dinner and drinks and went to bed pretty early. An all night dance party and then getting up so early in the morning will exhaust you. Especially after eleven months of stressful wedding planning. So that next day we got up and had our lovely little breakfast in the room, then went out to lay on the beach....and we had no idea what to do with ourselves. After months and months of non-stop stress and busybusybusy, laying on a beach and trying to relax was nearly impossible. We both felt a little uneasy and jittery, almost like there was something else we were supposed to be doing. Luckily, by the second day we had the hang of it.
I literally took a nap every single day that we were there. We would get up, have breakfast in the room, go to the beach, float around the lazy river, come back, shower, lay around and watch crime shows like CSI (for some reason that was the only thing ever playing in English), I would nap, then we would get ready for dinner and drinks. Some nights there was a show, some nights we went to the little bars they had. It was amaaazing.
When I look back on our week in Mexico now I just get a little sad and nostalgic. Seriously, I don't know of a more relaxing time in my life. I also don't know why we didn't plan an identical trip for our first anniversary. I'm sure our road trip to Austin and San Antonio is going to be tons of fun, but....it won't be laying on a gorgeous in a bikini drinking a dirty martini.
So with that, I'm saying goodbye for a few days. We are heading out today for our anniversary road trip. I'll be back next weekend on a more regular basis. Hope everyone has a fabulous week!
