warm waters

Even though we live relatively close to the ocean and are able to go to the beach often, the sad truth is that we don't. Whether it's busy schedules filled with errands and events or pure laziness, the closer its proximity, the more we take it for granted.

And so, we flew a thousand miles to the beaches and warm waters of Mexico to soak in some R&R with our good friends. Turns out it was a blissful week of pool-obsessed fun, sun-screen slathering rituals, and sand-filled adventures. 

Truth is, I wouldn't have had it any other way.
