Every year before the Holiday frenzy, Luke's family heads to Mexico. I had the privilege of going to Cancun last year, which was nothing short of amazing. This year, I was fortunate (and beyond grateful) to be included again on a trip to Cabo, which was equally incredible.
Warning: I took over 900 pictures. Here are just a "few".

Elevator to the ocean
Amazing breakfast at Vina del Mar. I was a good girl and ate fruits and veggies. Okay, and some pain au chocolat.
I envy the lucky-ducks in Cali that own places with views like this.
Besides my hilarious brother, these Pech boys sure know how to entertain! Never a dull moment.
Dinner at SalsitaS cocina y cantina in the historic district of San Jose del Cabo
Garlic shrimp and garlic rice
Flan custard, mmm
the Ladies room, obviously
Tequila by the firepit
Sadly mistaken to find that this was not an elaborate sandcastle, but a rock formation.
Lace top from Anthropologie, straw bag from J.Crew, denim cutoffs from AE in High School!
"Into Thin Air"
An icy read for such a tropical vacation.
Just a few beach "snacks" to hold us over until dinner.

We enjoyed yet another night by the firepit, puffing on my Maraya Churchill cigar.
Snacking on some chips and salsa as we head out into the Sea of Cortez on a sunset sailboat cruise.
Poor Luke. Motion sickness hits him pretty hard. Thank goodness they had some Dramamine on hand.
I took about 200 pictures of this group of 4 whales that we "chased" for a good half an hour. Such a cool experience. I've never seen anything like it! It baffles me to think that these enormous creatures even exist.
How cool is this pirate ship?! The boat itself is 126 years old and the little square sail at the top is original!
Don't you just feel like this is a scene out of Neverland?
A nice surprise of sushi served towards the end of cruise back to the harbor.
