It's so hard to believe that a week ago we were over halfway through our family vacation to Mexico. It was the perfect vacation filled with tons of sunshine, family time, reading, relaxing, games, sunrises, sunsets, runs, and really good food.
Isla Mujeres is a small island off the coast of Cancun. It is quaint, and endearing and a place my family has absolutely fallen in love with. I am so glad Sten and I were able to go this year. The island feels more and more like home and it was so hard to leave. I took a lot of pics and I'd love to share some of them....
I didn't quite capture it before the wave!

 Where I spent the majority of my days while reading Gone Girl- the BEST vacation read EVER.
 Now if this picture doesn't just SCREAM Mexico, I don't know what does.

 We played games and ate our breakfast each morning on those little chairs!
Hi dad!!

 Goodbye Isla Mujeres!

:( so sad to leave!

It was a great vacation. I have never been one of those people who like to "get back into the swing of things" so..... we are back home where it is 14 degrees and instead of hours of beach lounging, I am sitting at work! But that's what makes vacation so special, and I feel so blessed that Sten and I got to enjoy this time with my family.
