Dreaming of the Beach

With the recent warming of the weather, Greg and I have been dreaming of the beach. Dreaming of a vacation where we can get away from the J-O-B, spend some good quality time with each other, talk about life, celebrate a year of marriage (what?! already??) and not to mention, spend some time in the sun. Turns out, working 8-5 for five days out of the week doesn't exactly allude to that perfectly golden summer glow.

One of the biggest pieces of advice that I've heard over and over again by those who are both older and wiser and been married for a bit longer is to TRAVEL. Doesn't matter where, just find the money (whether its a little or a lot) and just travel. Get away. Go see the world. A lot of people I know that are married and now have children, wish they would have done this more. They wish they would have prioritized this and made a way for it to happen, because its not that easy to travel once you have little kiddos running around.

Not that Greg and I have kids anywhere in the near future forecast, but we've been dreaming of the places we want prioritize and save for.

St. John
The Bahamas
Seattle (again)
Colorado - for skiing!
Lake Tahoe
New York City
Washington D.C.

The list could go on and on forever, and its always changing. Well, we've scraped up some money (by going without shopping for new clothes, or spending money on extravagant dates, and really just learning to live simply) and we're ready to go. Since we are newlyweds and the money we've scraped up is pretty meager, we're thinking Mexico. Close enough and relatively cheap in comparison to the other destinations on our list. So, that's what we're going to do! Head to Mexico. Haven't booked anything yet, but we are on the lookout for good deals!

Have you traveled to Mexico recently or are you planning on visiting in the near future? Have any places you could recommend? We'd love any and all insight! Reviews from friends we trust are the best!

We went to Cabo and stayed at the Riu Palace... it was wonderful!! And all inclusive so we could eat all day without worrying how much we were spending ;)
