Did You Think I Never Came Back? :)

Hi Friends! I'm sorry it's been so long. Our trip to Mexico was sooooo wonderful!
This resort was actually in Akumal, not Tulum, like I had thought.
 
It had the absolute best beach I've ever been to! The water was so clear and warm.
 
Lots of vegetation and palm trees at this place!
 
The pool was gorgeous and the drinks were so good!

 The pool and the beach were just steps away from each other, so we could easily switch it up through out the day.  
 
One day we took a catamaran out to do some snorkeling.
That was my favorite day! The boat ride was so pretty and relaxing.
 
 Around the pool there were these little, curtain enclosed, private, cushions to just take a little nap in, or read your book.
 
 Here's me on day one, after I've discovered these little cabanas. Not quite sure how many tropical drinks I'd had at this point, but I know that I was thinking that this was the best place on earth!
 
 Inside my cozy little reading place.
 
For some reason the cocktail waitress kept bringing me two at a time. Who was I to turn them away?
 
 The walkway to the pool.
 
 We really loved that this place was so green and jungle-like.
 
 These guys were all over the place.
 
My sister Angie, and her "Mango-Tango"!  :)
 
My Aunt Judy, and Mom Holly. So cute is their little swim cover-ups!
 
 Coconut ice cream and pretty little cakes.
 
 Cappuccino with cinnamon every morning!
 
 This was kind of a neat dessert. That's ice cream in the dish, and inside that banana leaf bundle was a hot chocolate cake.
 
Another shot of the huge pool. This resort is actually adults only...as in "no kids allowed".  I'd never been to a place that didn't allow kids before, but I have to say, it made for a totally different atmosphere. A quiet and calm one!
 
Every day the house keeping ladies would leave a different animal (made of towels) on your bed. This is the rabbit version I guess.
 
With the exception of one or two days, we stayed at the resort the entire time! This trip wasn't about getting out there and site seeing. It was all about soaking up the sun, and we did it! Though, I did smothered myself in SPF 70 the whole time! :)
 
The past several weeks I just felt like I needed a break from all the computer stuff. Not a break from you guys of course! But a break from blogging and pinning and FB...it can all be a bit much sometimes. Mostly because I'm not very good at setting limits for myself. Three hours wasted on pinning? Suuure, why not?? lol
I want to get back to selling in my Etsy shop! And I've also joined IG. I need to set up a link on my blog still, but if you want to find me, I'm @ericabryan on IG.
I look forward to catching up with all of you, and I appreciate that you're still here!
Erica :)
p.s.  a traditional post featuring vintage stuff is up next!
