En el mar, la vida es más sabrosa!

When most people think of Cancun they think paradise or spring break and for good reason. However, when I think {or even hear} the word Cancun I am transported through a whirlpool of emotions and memories. For me, Cancun means home. My grandmother, her wonderful husband, my aunt and my cousin all live there so I spent all of my early summer months as a child in the sweltering heat of Cancun.

{As much as I truly hated having to wear matching outfits with my sister and even though I promised myself that I would never do that to my future children, I just might have to!}

{Teaching my baby brother how to swim}

It was there that I learned how to swim and how to fish, where I worked through my awkward teen years, where I had my first crush and my first heartbreak and where I realized that I had fallen deeply and madly in love with the man that is now my husband.

{Mike’s first visit to Cancun…. look at the colour of that water though! Takes my breath away every.single.time.}

I recently returned from spending a lovely week there with family {celebrating my mama and her wonderful husband!} and it was on the drive back to the airport on the final day that I realized just how much love I have for that place. Some people experience that sort of emotion for a house but for moi, a girl who hasn’t lived in a house longer than 5 years, Cancun is that place.
