Heaven on Earth

Also known as, Cancun, Mexico, was the destination last month. We stayed at the Me by Melia resort which has recently converted to an all-inclusive model. We'd been reading the reviews regularly prior to our trip and were a little bit nervous about some of the things being mentioned in the reviews. But, I am thrilled to report that our stay was fantastic! I cannot wait to go back there again. I'm pretty sure that I've found my happy place.

This was the scene that out my window as I drew back the curtain on the first morning.

Good morning to you too!

I have never seen water so incredibly blue before in my life!

I had ceviche for lunch or dinner every day while I was in Mexico and plan to perfect several versions of it this summer at home. Let me know if you'd like to be a recipe tester.

The uber chic Rose Bar where we enjoyed pre-dinner cocktails each evening (sorry the photo is a little crooked, I may have imbibed in said cocktails prior to taking the photo).

Cool breeze at the Rose Bar.

My Bali bed. I wish I had taken a picture of my friend Oliver. He was so sweet and he'd bring me cucumber cocktails and ceviche all day long.

Here was the view from my Bali bed. Yes, I am serious, I took this with my iPhone while laying in the Bali bed. It looks like a frickin' postcard!

In fact, I learned yesterday that Nelly's new music video was recorded at the resort and MY Bali bed is in the video. How awesome is that?
We only left the resort once. I mean, seriously, why would we leave the resort? It was incredible but the excursion to Isla Mujeres was pretty terrific too. We took a catamaran to Isla Mujeres to go snorkeling (amazing!), have lunch on the beach (scenic but the food was not so good), and cruise around the little town (quaint).

Needless to say, we had a wonderfully relaxing time and are looking forward to going back later this year or early next year.
