Cancun, Mexico Part 2


                "In the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years."

                                                                                                               Abraham Lincoln

 Feeling so blessed to be on this trip and exploring a new place, we wanted to wake early one morning to see the sun rise over the water. We were first on the beach that day and the beauty was breathtaking.

Time to reflect, unwind, and just enjoy each other's company as a couple. We missed the girls so much and wanted them there with us, but we also realized that this time alone as a couple was necessary.... so we learned to embrace it and enjoy the day.


These are some more views from around our resort that we stayed at. Love how the sky and lighting changes as the sun slowly rises.




                                   This is one of my favorite pictures from that morning.


           We sat down on the beach chairs and just enjoyed the process of nature at it's finest :-)


      "Keep your face always towards the sunshine and shadows will fall behind you"  Walt Whitman




This is a video I took while we were sitting there, I just love hearing the waves.... deep breath and breathe.... whatever may be troubling you shall pass.... take a moment and just bask in God's beautiful creation.







"Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present"

                                                                                                                                   Jim Rohn






    One of Jerry's favorite things to do is to collect seashells as we walk the beach.... love this guy :-)


The sun rising casts a whole new beauty to the resort as we head to the restaurant for breakfast. :-)


                    So thankful... so blessed.... so begins another amazing day with the man I love.

Hi Sweetie! Nice to see you back. I caught up on both posts and it looks like it was a wonderful trip!! What a wonderful company and awesome boss to do that for his employees.

It looked like such a beautiful resort - and it's always nice to go a just be a couple for a while and not "mom" and "dad". Important to take that time for each other as couples.

Thanks for sharing your trip! Love it!! xoxo
PS: I'm going to be sharing a giveaway blog post soon (hopefully tomorrow!)

Such a beautiful resort, loved the video of the sunrise. Always good to spend quality time as a couple. Some of the quotes were lovely, I loved the Audrey Hepburn one at the end. Take care.
