Vacation Wrap Up

We are back from sunny Mexico! We spent 7 nights at an all-inclusive, adults-only, resort on the Riviera Maya to celebrate our 10th. Very relaxing, great food, beautiful resort (with an amazing staff), and of course, visually inspiring! It was just what we needed to get away from our responsibilities at work and at home, if only for a little while.

Enjoy some random pics and a "top 10-ish" list (in no particular order).

1. A new love for limes
2. Being in the ocean and snorkeling for the first time
3. Renewing our vows October 8th, on the beach at sunrise
4. A $248 peso bottle of sunscreen (translation: $21 usd, yike!)
5. Releasing baby sea turtles with local biologists Gaby and Jesus, under the moonlight
6. The clarity and range of blue tones in the Mexican Caribbean Sea
7. Watching hubby try to master chopsticks
8. Truly relaxing
9. The color of the flora and fauna in the tropics
10. Mayan Coffee. It's flambe'd!
11. No glasses and no sneezing for a whole week
12. Watching the most beautiful cloud formations I've ever seen
13. Scoring the resort's soundtrack from Roberto
14. An appreciation for beauty of the Spanish language
