Zihua.

I planted myself here the instant we got to Zihuatanejo.

It was an amazing six days.


Six days filled with relaxation, reading of teen-lit novels ("May the odds be ever in your favor"-- Hunger Games anyone?! Loved!), lounging by the pool, time with husband, time with friends...and to top it all off, my best friend got married. I'd say it was a once in a lifetime experience, however we all vowed to someday get back there together.

I really hope that promise/wish comes true because waking up to this every day was certainly not hard to take...

Our buddy, Salvador: "Anything you want, anytime, 20 times". Well, thank you very much Savador...it's no wonder we became fast friends with the guac he would bring us.

And while it was extremely hard to be away from Charlotte for that long, knowing she was in good hands allowed us to truly relax and recharge our batteries. These type of vacations don't come around all that often, so when they do...we absorb it and feel oh-so-thankful to be in that particular moment.

Moments of sun, sand and friends. It's pretty great stuff.

To top off all that great stuff though...is a wedding. A gorgeous, special, intimate and most memorable wedding of my childhood friend and constant companion...the sister in my heart. And she was a beauty!

It WAS hot though...had to do some breaks in between photo shoots to cool off our bride.

This is an awesome wedding location!!! What was the name of the hotel/resort? Ammmaazzing!

Courtney said...

Leann, the place we stayed was called Tentaciones and it was perfection-- only 4 rooms in the whole place, it feels like your own private villa filled with friends!
