Christmas in Mexico

When it comes to Christmas, I’m a pretty traditional sort of gal. I love decorating for the holidays, making Christmas cookies, exchanging gifts and most importantly, visiting family. Believe it or not, I’ve spent every Christmas of my entire life with my parents.

So I knew that this year would be tough – with my mother passing away this October and my father already gone. To get through it, we decided to do something completely different this year – we’re going to Mexico for Christmas!

We’ll be hanging out in a little beach town called Sayulita – known for surfing, yoga and family fun. We’ve been there before and we all love it so we know we’ll have fun. Plus, I’m very curious to see what they do for Christmas in Mexico. I bet we come back with some new holiday traditions!

Hopefully I’ll have access to wifi and can upload photos along the way. We always have adventures in Mexico! Follow along on Instagram if you can!

Wishing you a very happy holiday season! See you soon!

Greener, Safer, Better Stocking Stuffers

  Psssst! Did you know Santa sometimes leaves treats for the grownups when he drops by the house? Not necessarily a stocking full, but a little treat or two. Maybe it's only when you've been extra good. I'm really not sure. All I know is that it's happened once or twice at our house over the years. Has this happened at your … [Continue reading]

Greener, Safer, Better Gifts for Dudes

Greener, Safer, Better Gifts for Dudes

Guys can be so hard to buy for right? When they have a hobby, they usually buy whatever they need for themselves. Beyond that, they don't often speak up about what they might want. So you end up winging it based on what you think they like and might actually use. On that note, I usually go for practical gifts - but things that are a … [Continue reading]
