Hi guys! Well it is already Wednesday and by the time you are reading this (I am writing this Tuesday) I will be on my way to Nashville for the rest of the week. I have a couple things to do in Nashville to get ready for our move so off I go!
My husband and I often talk about the difference of a vacation and an adventure. An adventure to us is exploring a new place while immersing ourselves into the culture and seeing all the popular attractions and local favorites. A vacation to us is about relaxing and reading a good book, but not worrying about “seeing” or “doing” too much. While our big London/Amsterdam trip was definitely an adventure, our Cancun trip was most certainly a true vacation. Before we even got to Mexico, we planned to “not plan” anything. During previous trips to Mexico, I have swam with the dolphins, deep sea fished, snorkeled, and explored the town, but this time we didn’t even want to leave the resort. So we didn’t. And it was exactly what we needed. It was truly so relaxing and nice to not have an agenda.
This is where I spent all day on Sunday. It was lovely.
The water is so clear and beautiful.
We have decided we are going to make this a yearly tradition. It was the perfect time to get away. Although we both love the holidays, they can be a pretty stressful time especially with our families in different places. This was a special time for us to just reflect on how blessed we are and really enjoying the holidays. Can you see the rainbow in the picture below?
Lucky girl. 🙂
The resort had a cute little espresso bar too so every day after the pool we would grab an espresso or two. Espresso and champagne are my favorites. Not together, of course. 😉
Saturday night we got ready early and headed to the theater for a drink before dinner and ended up playing a round of scrabble. Did I tell you guys that I love games?
The huge Christmas tree in the lobby. 🙂
Saturday night we went to the Steakhouse restaurant for dinner.
When we ordered a drink after dinner while waiting for the show, the bartender gave me two glasses of champagne. For the record, I did not drink that big one! LOL!
Sunday morning we went to the gym bright and early before catching an hour or two by the pool before getting ready to head home. We had one last amazing lunch… I had a salad the size of my head and it was delicious!
We had such a great time on our vacation and I can’t recommend this all-inclusive resort enough! The food and drinks were soo good and the staff was truly amazing! We will definitely be back! I hope to check in with you all tomorrow or Friday! Have a great rest of the week!
