Post vacation blues

Today I’m laying in bed with a headache and it’s making me want to cry. It’s sorta weird. I mean it hurts a lot but for whatever reason it’s making me super emotional. I just wanna be playing in the sunshine with my babies! Thankfully my husband is super dad and he’s been taking great care of them and letting them come in and snuggle me sweetly ever so often.

In between falling in and out of sleep I’m thinking of that last few days we had together in Palm Springs. They were perfect. We are in the midst of a high stress season and getting out of town and away from on the chaos was a beautiful gift! We had no agenda // just swim, eat, and sleep. It was glorious. The kids had a blast and my sister stayed with us so the hubs and I were even able to sneak in some late night swimming and a movie date!

So if you follow me on Instagram you know that I was just in cabo for a week!
So let’s talk about it! Cabo is where it’s at! We had the most incredible time! 20131221-211431.jpg

Here’s why:
⇥ I hate flying and from Southern California the flight is a only two hours!
⇥ I’m traveling with two little kids with sleep schedules and the time change is only one hour!
⇥ Mexican food is heaven.
⇥ The weather was sunny perfection in December!
⇥ The resort was killer!!!!! If you’re looking for a gorgeous || kid friendly but in no way kid zone || resort to play && relax then Cabo Azul is the place to be!

Okay now that that plug is outta the way… Just kidding no one paid me for that.

Anyways I come from a close family with a large extended family! We actually all like each other (mostly)! So when my parents/ siblings/ aunt and uncle/ && some cousins were all heading to Cabo for a week I was green with envy! I wanted to go with my little family desperately but my husband and I couldn’t see the way! Right when I had given up hope God showed up and blew me away! He totally made a way where we saw no way to go on this incredible vacation together! We had the best time just being together. We are such a busy family and for a whole week we just slowed down and relaxed. Multiple times we thought out loud- maaaan this is easier than being at home! I don’t know about you but often times I view vacation as a lot of work and I return home tired. This trip wasn’t like that. I feel filled up and refreshed. I feel thankful and blessed to have had such an incredible opportunity to make memories with my own family.

When we first got there I was stunned by the beauty of the resort. It was perfect. I held my sweet boy in the infinity pool looking out to the ocean and I had tears in my eyes. I was overwhelmed with joy and pride in what we were able to provide for our children. My husband and I didn’t get passports until we were prepping for out honeymoon and now our babies both have them before either of them are even three! It was a pretty cool revelation! I am so excited to see the beauty all around the world with this family of mine!
