Something I have been wanting to do for a while is start sharing more personal things on my blog. Not just photo sessions... but stuff from my own life as well!

What better way to begin doing this then sharing one of my favorite trips ever that my husband I took in early June?!

For Christmas this past year, my parents generously gave us a trip to wherever we wanted to go. Seriously nothing better than the gift of travel, right?!

After going back and forth and researching a million places, we decided we really just wanted a relaxing beach vacation. Although our last trip to Africa was absolutely amazing, it was very adventurous and we were ready for something more laid back (not sleeping amongst elephants and lions.. )

So, we were between Aruba, Jamaica and Mexico. Both my SIL and BIL and my Aunt and Uncle visited this resort in Riviera Maya and raved about it, so we decided to go ahead and book The Valentin Imperial for the first week of June. 

It was absolutely amazing. The resort was unlike any resort I had been to. It was absolutely huge. The were several two story buildings throughout the massive property, instead of a tall high rise building! It was also all inclusive which was a game changer! So nice to not have to pull out your wallet every time you want a drink or food!

We upgraded when we arrived to an ocean front room with a jaccuzzi overlooking the ocean. Best money we ever spent! The view was incredible and it was so so relaxing!!

We can not wait to go back...hopefully next year ;)! Enjoy these photos!
