to mexico we go!, part one

our holiday in mexico...oh man, did we have a blast. all four of us have been feeling the post-vacation blues something fierce since we got back. but, i always like to take that as a sign of a memorable, whirlwind of a trip. i mean, there's nothing to feel the blues about unless you had an exceptionally great time, right?

so we initially started planning this trip about a year back when our friend michael (our other friend named michael, not jana's michael :) ) told us he was planning to have his 40th bash down in playa. he was letting friends know so, if they were interested, they could start planning. T and i had been missing mexico something serious since our honeymoon so, we jumped at the chance to go back! then, we thought, well let's make it a getaway for us and take an extended trip/see if m+j want to join in. thankfully, they were of course game to come and were more than excited to start planning.

flash forward to our first night in playa. sweet, balmy air, music playing everywhere, colorful people all around us, and us, altogether. i couldn't stop mentally pinching myself that after all that planning and waiting, we were finally on our trip together!

we were excited to be there, but exhausted from flying. so, we turned in a little early after taking in the scenery that night.

our first morning, jana and i did a little rooftop yoga session with a post-swim cool-off before getting breakfast with the guys. aka the best way to wake up, hands down. then, we packed up our things and made our way to the beach for the day.

sometime later, we left the beach in search of some afternoon treats and drinks. thankfully, our neighborhood bar also happened to have some amazing tacos and tasty pesto ceviche.

after lunch, we got cleaned up and made our way over to michael's apartment for welcome cocktails with everyone who flew down for the weekend. it was so great to get to see so many familiar faces who were equally excited to celebrate the birthday boy, and to grab some beach time.

we later made our way to our favorite mexican spot to treat m+j to some great wine, atmosphere, and most importantly, food. 

[word to the wise, trust when they say the salsa is spicy here!]
