My family always makes a point to make the most out of any holiday and long weekend. Back when we were all younger and life was a little more simple, we used to travel to the beach at least one weekend a month.

I've always wondered what the purpose of the "pedida de mano" is. Couples now-a-days get engaged and announce it to their families and that's as official as it gets.

Hello there! I've been MIA for the past two months as I settled back home, struggled to figure out what do with my life (post post-grad school problems?) and tackled the beginning stages of wedding planning. Things have been pretty hectic and abstract and wonderful.

The whole reason for this trip was to celebrate my husband's 30th birthday! We spent 6 days in Playa del Carmen walking on the beach, sun bathing and trying to brave the pool's and ocean's cold cold water. The hotel we stayed in was just heavenly, with little cabanas by the pool to sleep in, various restaurants, buffets and bars to choose from, really inviting you to just stay and relax all day.Read More
