Lost in Mexico

Standard

I’ve been flying under the radar the last few days completely caught up in the beauty of Mexico. It was a short trip but we filled our days to feel like we were there for eternity. St. Regis in Punta Mita is an amazing place. Not only is it beautiful but it is also like a quiet retreat. The resort is spread out so strategically well that at night it’s rare to see another human being. And the staff, amazing! There aren’t enough words in the English language to describe how pleasant and accommodating they were.  So, I didn’t do much writing in paradise because I was busy enjoying every minute. Here are a few pictures of this amazing place.

   
   

A Moment of Pause

Standard

Today I had a ton of time to think. I was sitting on a large porch eating breakfast by myself. The breeze and the view were amazing. I watched as the wind gently ruffled the palm trees. I enjoyed the quiet calm of the waves and how they gracefully fell against the rocks. I sat there thinking that I should do this more often. It’s nice to look up for a change. We all should. How often do you sit still and just look at the beauty all around you? How many times do you sit in a rocking chair and spend several minutes just rocking? We rush, we run, we over schedule and we are missing the really special moments that give us a chance to reconnect with who we really are. The me who is more than the thinker, the doer. The me that feels connected to each and every wave and every grain of sand. The  me who just watches and breathes and feels gratitude for these moments, that once in a while, I finally pause long enough to enjoy.

Counting The Days

Standard

When is the last time you had something to look forward to? I don’t mean like dinner with friends or a relaxing pedicure, I mean something to really be excited about? Travel is that thing for me. There is nothing better for my own soul than exploring a place I have never been to before. In two days it is happening and I cannot wait. My husband and I will be traveling to Punta Mita, Mexico for an adventurous mini vacation. We will be paddle boarding through caves, zip lining, repelling, drinking frozen concoctions and of course soaking in the scenery on the beautiful beach. I can’t wait! Tell me the last time you felt really excited about something. What was it?

Time to Just Be….

There is nothing better for ones soul than a few days feeling the sun on your skin and listening to the beautiful rhythm of the waves. This was our first trip to Mexico. I have always joked with my family that I wanted to be taken away for my birthday. This birthday, I got my wish! We had so many crazy experiences that I will blog about tomorrow. Tonight, I am grateful to be home and feel blessed to have traveled to such a beautiful place. But just for tonight, I will keep those memories to myself and try and go back in my dreams….
