7 Magical

I can't help but type this with a small smile on my face and a feeling of calm and relaxation. One look at the photos and I'm back in Tulum (Mexico) in a heartbeat… I can hear the sound of the waves and the wind rustling the palm leaf roof of the hut we slept in. I can feel the breeze from the ocean playing softly over my skin, and remember how my mind wandered in a pleasant haze while I looked at the water, at lovely husband C., debated reading my book and then closed my eyes and drifted off instead.

I loved how I didn't need anything but my bathers for four days straight. Flip-flops were strictly optional as it was roughly twenty steps from our hut to the water over powder soft, perfectly white sand. When we wanted a change of scene, we'd move from the sun lounge to the hammock. When the sun started to set, we'd walk along the beach watching families play and dogs race along the sand.

It was a place of perfect, utter calm and relaxation. My favorite beach in the Northern Hemisphere... so far.

5 To catch you up...

... We've been busy. very. We're currently spending a lot of time outside New York. My work is taking me to Florida every week and lovely husband C. has been busy flying all over. Every second weekend we take ourselves off to somewhere other than NYC, to explore, relax and unwind. 

First up, the Bahamas. It's only a thirty minute flight from Florida and it seemed easier to fly there than back to NYC for a cold weekend, where it seems spring never really made an appearance this year. 

A couple of weeks later, we flew to charming Charleston. It stole my heart. We had more than one conversation about moving here, over wine and delectably delicious cheeses.

New York is undeniably home (for now). I love the first view of her glittering skyscrapers each time I come home from the airport.

And then to Tulum. Paradise. Sun, sand, crystal clear water, the smell of coconut in my hair and salt on the breeze. Fresh fish for dinner at night, fresh juices in the morning. Beach walks at sunset and afternoon sleeps in the hammock.

I feel incredibly lucky that we're able to travel so much right now. It won't always be like this and we're soaking it up while we can, pinching ourselves each time we get to a new destination and making magical memories to last us a lifetime.

ps. I have many, many photos to share, but not enough time to share them in. Instagram is currently my favourite thing and I'd love to see you there - @hopeinhighheels.
