For those of you who read regularly, sorry again for the unexplained absence. I don’t know about you, but leaving on vacation is always a (great) whirlwind for us making sure all the pieces are in place. I also didn’t realize there’d be no wifi, so when we discovered there wasn’t, I took it as a sign that I should spend our trip being in the moment and grateful, and update you all when I got back. 🙂 So here it is:


for this (^) amazing guy who planned this amazing trip so that I would feel celebrated and have a chance to relax. I am so blessed.


for two of my favorite places to have my feet…in the sand and in the ocean.


for dinners (and breakfasts and lunches) together and hot weather (that made my hair crazy but my soul happy).


for dolphin kisses and dances, which were AMAZING.



for the opportunity to visit and learn about Tulum, Mayan ruins situated on a cliff overlooking the ocean, in the middle of a jungle. So cool.


I’m super grateful for days spent in beautiful places like these exploring and relaxing, for the beauty of God’s creation and for amazing little things like snails.

And last, but definitely not least, I am grateful that I am lucky enough to be married to my best friend in the whole world. I am so thankful for the time we got to spend together exploring, relaxing, reading, talking, holding hands, laughing, and just being together. There is no one in the world who knows me as well as he does and gives me the freedom to be more and more like the person I am meant to be. It is an amazing gift to be loved so well, to have a husband who works hard to make me feel loved, and who continues to get to know me better and better. He is a gift and I am so very grateful to have had this restful time in this beautiful place with my favorite.

What is the best vacation you’ve ever been on?
