    City Girl Does Más Cancún

    Too much goodness means más is required… We didn’t have too many more days left of our trip after the wedding, but we enjoyed every last second of our vacation. MONDAY Remember when I said we had $750 in resort credit to burn through? Well, when Lil and I saw that swimming with dolphins was an option, we knew we’d check that off our bucket list. I will say, we both have an empathetic heart for these animals that are raised in captivity for our enjoyment, but we still continued to book this excursion. There were a couple other options we both wanted to try, but with our schedule and the…

    Crusin’, Baby!

    The last summer hurrah… The perfect way to end our summer of small trips. I’ve done some traveling, minimal, but enough. But I’ve never been in the airport as many times as I have this summer, in that short of time span. I feel completely lucky to be sharing my adventures with you. This summer turned out much more exciting than I would have thought back in January. This trip has been a long time coming. Originally my Mom gave us some traveling funds as a thank you for motivating her to become healthier, which involved working out every day for over a year, running her first ever half marathon,…
