Love In Cancun

December 10, 2015

Byron and I recently took a trip to Cancun. What a beautiful place! If we get the chance, we love to take time away just the two of us. Oliver is our whole world and we couldn’t imagine our life without him. Our life was seriously so boring before he came, and we can’t remember what we used to do with all that time. haha I will say though, it’s nice to just be the two of us every once in a while. We napped in cabanas on the beach all day long, went on water sports adventures, nice dinners, and just did things we knew we couldn’t do with Oliver at this age. Plus, he wouldn’t remember any of those fun adventures anyway. He stayed with my brother and sister-in-law and their two kids, who he absolutely adores. It’s so cute to see how much they love each other. I almost feel like he has more fun with the cousins while we’re gone than if he were with us. He always comes back knowing so much! He told me what Star Wars was… lol

With that said though, I kept thinking how I couldn’t wait to share these moments with Oliver when he gets older. I have a video coming soon about everything we did while we were there!! 

Such beautiful views everywhere! I brought lightweight dresses and shorts to stay comfy and still feel a chic, but I lived in my bathing suit most of the time we were there.

    Taking time just the two of you is so important, and it benefits Oliver to have parents that still are a couple, so I think it is great. I try to get away with Mr. Loca every once in a while too, especially as our second one is arriving in March.

    My epic swag bag would include..
    •Defintetely a LUSH bubble bar. They smell amazing and are so good for relaxation!
    •The “VIVO per lei” dead sea mineral face exfoliator is the best one I’ve ever used, but it sucks I can only find them in Las Vegas.
    •Shea moisture hand & body scrub – my philosophy is soft and supple skin can help you achieve anything.
    •LUSH cupcake face mask would be in my bag, too. It smells amazing and leaves my skin feeling great.
    •This might sound weird, but castor oil and a clean mascara wand! I’ve been obsessed with long eyelashes, and castor oil promotes growth and hydrates them. 💘
