James Taylor Said It Best

"Oh, Mexico
It sounds so sweet with the sun sinking low
Moon's so bright like to light up the night
Make everything all right"

Ben & I spent last week in Playa del Carmen, Mexico with two of our favorite couples: my sister Ashleigh and her boyfriend Scott, and our friends Lindsley & Tarik. After our Presidents' Day ski trip, we needed a warm vacation; "Spring Break 2011", as we called it (which Ben did not appreciate). We arrived at an all-inclusive resort on Sunday and didn't head back stateside until Thursday afternoon. Despite all our "white whines", there's really nothing to complain about - trust me, we tried. Drinking fruity drinks out of coconuts, getting our exercise in turquoise waters, laying on chaise lounges in the pool, getting massages on the beach ... it was pretty much the perfect relaxation vacation. The only times we had any idea what time it was were the mornings when we had to be at the most delicious breakfast buffet or our various dinner reservations each night. It was exactly the recharge I needed to make it through to our next day off (Memorial Day).
