Our week in Mexico

I'm trying to think how to recap our trip to Punta Mita, and what really stands out was that it was relaxing, indulgent, fun, and fulfilling. 

To have 8 days with my family, minus Hannah who came the same day we had to leave, is worth it's weight in gold, and to do it in paradise? 

Our days were spent with a walk in the morning, reading, games, and pool during the day, happy hours watching the sun go down, and amazing dinners usually followed by music and more games. 

I took 800 pictures, but I think these next few sum our trip the best.

I love how Joel is waving and I am crying.

And, as luck would have it, our flight was delayed 30 minutes and right when a car pulled up, Hannah and her boyfriend walked in! It couldn't have been more perfect.
I can't believe another perfect Mexico trip is under our belts, but Joel and I feel really, really, really lucky to have that slice of paradise and be able to call it home. 

and, now....it's back to reality, until next week!


  1. Your trip looked amazing!! You got some great pictures! So jealous!!
    Ally - Life as I know it

  2. Great photos, Tess! I was wondering what type of camera you use? Do you just use your iPhone or do you have another camera you use, too? We're heading to Antigua for our honeymoon in April and I wanted to buy a high quality/affordable camera for the trip. Thanks!

  3. Okay, I think Max and I need to go to Punta Mita immediately.

  4. What a beautiful home you have there and special place to spend family time!! Those photos are absolutely gorgeous!! I've never been to Mexico except for some crappy cruise ship stops and I have always wanted to go! Hope you are adjusting okay to reality :)

  5. Can't believe I missed this recap! I am so jealous of yalls trip, it looked amazing! And you look so tiny and skinny!! Have a great week love!

  6. I'm only a month late reading this, but it has me ready to book a trip to paradise. SOOOO nice.
