First thing is WELCOME to the new layout! If you are reading through a reader, click on through to see the changes! I am so much happier with the new layout, the other one was just too cluttered. Once I started to add things like labels and buttons on here, I just never had a chance to actually organize it. It now looks how I like things to look. Simple, clean and pretty. It's taken me and my husband weeks to design the new logo and figure out how I wanted this to look. It might look simple but to put a simple design together is actually quite hard!
Big big thanks and lots of kisses to my husband for his hard work, he created all the new text graphics and my beautiful new header. I'm quite bossy when it comes to things like this and he has put up with a lot. That's why I love you sweetie! You are the best!
Also, I know there was some confusion as to why my blog was private. I changed it to private to make all these layout changes and I tried to do it late at night when nobody would be visiting my blog but there still are a lot of you! :) I got many emails about why my blog turned to private. Sorry about that but now you understand!
Here we go again, apologies for having to make you read through this again if you already saw it, but I added a few new pictures to make up for it!
So, I finally uploaded my pictures from Mexico and thought I'd share a few of our trip...
We stayed at Ceiba Del Mar which is in Puerto Moreles and is in the Riviera Maya part of Mexico. It was about a 30 minute drive from the Cancun airport and from what it sounded like from the taxi drivers, the town itself is very small and not too interesting if you wandered outside the resort.
This was the view of the resort's beach from the pier that my sister got married at. It was so beautiful every day. Just look at the clouds, they look like cartoon clouds, I love them!
I started most of our days on the hammock outside our room, sipping a cup of coffee that they delivered to our room every morning.
We did a lot of sitting by the pool or walking down to the beach to play in the sand...
(ha! we couldn't resist!)
but mostly we just sat listening to the waves and enjoying the time in the sun.
(I put the camera on self timer and ran into this position!)
The resort was beautiful, we got a nice room with a deck overlooking the pool. My sister and her (new!) husband got a penthouse overlooking the beach and it was GORGEOUS. It was so so hot though, I could really do without all the hotness. I mean, I like the hot weather but being constantly sticky was really not my kind of thing. When we first got there my family was basically the only guests so we had the place to ourselves. My sister had around 50 guests who trickled in later in the week and we basically took up the resort so it was neat to be by the pool and know everyone there.
Part II is our little day trip into Playa Del Carmen! Will post those soon!
