Well, after patiently waiting two long months, it was finally time to leave on our honeymoon! When you marry a law student mid-semester you realize you’re going to have to wait until winter break to take your honeymoon 🙂

We spent a week in Riviera Maya – which is about 20 miles outside of Cancun. It was hard to stop grinning when we pulled up in front of the adult-only, all-inclusive resort. We were greeted by a bell man who took our suitcases and handed us a cool towel to wipe our hands with. As he escorted us into the lobby, he stopped to pour us some champagne while we got checked in. We then followed the bell man to our room. We got quite the tour of the different restaurants and bars (8 restaurants, 10 bars) on our way  to the room. It was cute to see a honeymoon banner outside of our door, and even more cute to see two swans made of towels on the bed with rose petals. We were so excited about the jacuzzi tub in the middle of the room, the view of one of the amazing pools, the champagne chilling on ice next to the bowl of fresh fruit. We were starving and wasted no time ordering room service!

Instead of a play by play of the entire trip, I thought I’d share some highlights and some pictures 🙂

1. I tried my first lobster — and liked it.

2. I learned to play chess, and still haven’t beat Brandon.

3. I had plenty of drinks aside from Diet Coke! Margaritas, pina coladas, mojitos, martinis. Brandon was impressed and so was I.

4. We got a massage and facial at the amazing spa.

5. We took a bike ride to Puerto Morales – a little fishing town a few miles from the resort. We had to wear orange vests and helmets — which made it that much more romantic.

6. We visited Tulum – an ancient site of Mayan ruins. The site is on a cliff, over-looking the ocean and it was absolutely beautiful.

7. We each read several books and layed in the sun 75 percent of the time we were there.
