Mexico #2

This year we had the pleasure of visiting Mexico not only once, but twice! This second time around we went away for our 3 year wedding anniversary (November 27 to December 4) and we went to the Riviera Nayarit (near Puerto Vallarta). We stayed at the Riu Vallarta and we're spoiled with a lovely vacation once again! 

Overall we had an amazing experience and are so grateful that we were able to save our money and treat ourselves! 

Here are some photos to make you all a little jealous ;)

All-inclusive just makes us feel so spoiled and even better, carefree! It really is an effortless getaway!

Bed Rest

I've been meaning to do a post-Mexico blog post (we went away for our 3 year wedding anniversary) but honestly I've been sick since we got back, and it's taken all my energy/motivation away! 

It's now past Christmas and I realize I still haven't posted but it also seems my sickness has escalated even worse compared to earlier this month. I've spent the last three days bed/couch ridden, drenched in sweat or smothered in blankets to avoid the chills, fighting off spine and leg muscle spasms, and barely keeping my eyes open from such severe headaches.  

I generally tend to catch a little cold around this time of the year (working in a hospital around flu season has its downfalls), but this year is by far the worst it's been in a while! 

That being said I am slowly starting to feel improvements in my overall state of being, so I hope to have my post mexico details up soon!
