I recently visited Sayulita, Mexico. It was given a rare opportunity for a dream shoot in such a beautiful place. I thought “Why not celebrate myself, so I said yes”!!!!!!! I do not regret this for one second. This was an amazing week for so many reasons. Packed my bag (with my own camera in hand too and flew away).
I don’t know about you, but I believe the world works in mysterious ways. This trip turned into a time of reflection, gratitude and growing a friendship stronger. It also turned into a trip to the hospital with food poisoning but that’s not the topic of conversation right now. (Insert a gross look on my face).
I enjoyed every day I had to “just be”. I love being a wife and mom more than you know but I needed a break. I left my husband with our son and I flew off to Sayulita. My husband, bless his heart would take on the world if it meant me being happier. We both knew this was not a good week for me to leave but he insisted I go. My husband is a selfless man who cares more about me being happy and will put everyone before himself.
The purpose of this trip was to treat my self to a dream photo shoot by Joi Photography. Well…..….it was all that and more!!!!! (Highly recommend you check out her page and book a trip to her next dream shoot location)!!!!! I got to sleep in every day if I wanted…which I did! I got to have my morning tea over looking such a beautiful place from our rooftop deck taking in the breath taking view! I got to take my time. I got to go to the beat of my own drum all week! I missed my boys deeply but guess what….they were just fine without me and they managed with no problem. Sometimes I think our household won’t run without me and I am totally wrong on that one! The house was even clean and laundry was done when I got home. Yes, I am a lucky woman!!
I like to take on everything because I like to feel needed I guess. I was missed but I was not needed while I was gone. Reality check…..my boys can take care of themselves!!!!!
Sayulita should be a bucket list for all travelers. It is a quaint little town that makes you not want to leave. Trust me, I did not want to leave. I will go back there in a heart beat given the opportunity to go.
I got to do a dream shoot as well as bring my camera along which is one of my happy joys in life. So enjoy the photos I took as well as some I added in from my dream shoot…..photo credit of those are by the very talented Crystal Skrupski with Joi Photography. This wouldn’t be complete if I didn’t toss in a selfie or two……he he…enjoy!!!
