Happy Wednesday MI Loves!
For today’s edition of #WildCardWednesdays I wanted to share about our most recent trip to Playa del Carmen, Mexico. Christian and I (more like I decided) that we needed to take a trip at the end of the year to relax and rejuvenate to start fresh for 2018.
The last five months leading up to the end of the year had been very trying for us—I was working full time as a school counselor and the workload was extremely daunting for me mentally. I was also in school part time which took up much of the free time I had. Christian spent the last five months working 14+ hour days which left little time for me, our videography business, and just time to enjoy all that our city has to offer.
I had enough and decided that for the first time in my life, I was going to do something different for New Year’s. After perusing through our travel book and checking the prices of flights, we decided to go to Mexico. Me, being the planner that I am, started searching for hotels, restaurants, things to do, and places to see all within a matter of a few days.
I knew that if we didn’t consciously make an effort to break away from the stresses of work, school, and life we were going to be doomed going into the New Year—and I was not having that!
We were able to disconnect from the world and really enjoy each other’s company—something we hadn’t been able to do a lot of the past few months. We prayed a lot and talked about our plans for the upcoming year and ways to achieve all of the goals we set. I definitely think that this trip was just what we needed to start our New Year, especially since we are still considered newlyweds and we are continuously working out the kinks of being husband and wife.
Traveling is something that is important to us so we make a conscious effort to work hard, pay our tithes, pay down debt, save for a rainy day, but also enjoy the fruits of our labor.
SN: Christian hates taking pictures so most of the time I end up having my own personal photographer for our vacations (hence why majority of the pictures are of me) LOL!
To all of MI loves, thanks for checking in with me.
