All in.

If you’ve ever taken a trip to Mexico, you know the feeling. Sitting on an airplane for what seems to be forever, filling out forms and you’re just anxious to get to your designated resort with drink in hand so the vacation can begin. Well now imagine you get to the part on the forms asking about where you’re staying and for how long and you have no idea what to put. I remember saying to myself “You’re really doing it, you’re moving to Mexico”. The weeks before had been so crazy with interviews and documents and selling all my belongings I wouldn’t need for my new life in paradise (goodbye winter coats!), I didn’t have time to process what I was doing; or even imagine what the future held for me.

If I get too hot, I’ll put my iPhone into my beach bag and walk the 17 steps or so into the giant ocean in front of me that is the Bay of Banderas. Daily Vitamin Sea. My husband, Danny, is next to me.  We just ate jumbo shrimp on the beach, his butter garlic and lime. I ate spaghetti with shrimp in a white wine sauce.  This isn’t uncommon in high season.  One or two days a week we go to the beach for the day.  Danny has a few beers and I eat lots of deserts because I’m due with our first child in a few months.
