tropical in so many ways || Mexico {part 3}

Tuesday, June 23, 2015

and after the rain came the sun-- and humidity.  it was glorious though, and we soaked up every last minute of tropical fun.  there was talk of course, of when we would be coming back, next year seemed like the consensus, who knows?  but having to hold back tears when the transportation arrives taking you back to the airport-- is surely a good sign the trip was memorable and magic.

and just so you don't think everything was perfect-- we did argue, like people tend to do.  About where to eat dinner, did you put sunscreen on!{him}, hang up your towel!{me}, about exploring further into Playa{he was right}, don't touch the iguana!{me}-- but if these are the things to fight over in Mexico, then I think every little thing is gonna be alright.

a few more favorites

+him jumping at the chance to play volleyball
+morning champagne on the balcony
+neon dresses
+white sand between your toes and in the sheets
+that margarita in Playa del Carmen
+the talking, the laughing, the joking-- being completely ourselves
+the Italian restaurant -- the Japanese one too
+his adventurous and exciting spirit, but mainly, just him


tropical in so many ways || Mexico {part 2}

 just like life there are unforeseen storms ahead-- tropical storm bill arrived on saturday to help us celebrate our anniversary.  it made for a romantic & lazy morning and a fun day of trying every tropical and boozy drink on the menu; even dressing up for dinner knowing we would be windblown and drenched, was fun, who cares when you're in Mexico.

day two of storms lead us into Playa Del Carmen -- he was excited and I was scared, typical.  But it was fun and adventurous-- making our way through the touristy shops and streets to the beach and back ending with authentic mexican food for lunch-- margaritas, guacamole, and tacos! this of course was my favorite part.

huddled together under the umbrella, in it together, weathering the storm.  making the most of each moment and phase of life, through sun and rain, blue skies and storm clouds-- we will hold onto each other and make our own way through.  together we adventure and celebrate and together stumble and get back up, how wonderful it is to have each other to hold onto through it all.  ironic how a tropical storm on your vacation can turn into a metaphor -- life is funny like that.
