Mexican Adventure

Mexican Adventure

It was such an amazing trip! 10 days in paradise was not enough. This was our eighth time in Mexico and every time we are there we dream of how we could become permanent vacationers (like in the Ben Stiller movie The Heartbreak Kid). It starts when we first touch down and go immediately outside to the airport bar to have the first sips of the margaritas (which always seem to taste the best). Exploring all the quaint little towns and exploring new beaches was a dream come true. Not to mention all the amazing food…octopus tacos, ceviche, shrimp, fish - it was all so good.

I wanted to share some of my favourite photos from my trip! Share some of your favourite spots and memories from traveling to Mexico!

Can’t wait to plan my next trip!

Birthday Vacation

Going away for my birthday has somewhat become a tradition for my husband and I over the past 5 years. I love travelling to the west coast of Canada as, in my opinion, it is one of the most beautiful places. It has an amazing vibe and some of the most beautiful scenery around. Anyone that knows me knows that I LOVE wine - and what's better than spending my birthday travelling to different wineries. After about my third day of drinking, I turned to my husband and said how can anyone get sick of doing wine tasting.  Well, after a full fun day of drinking on my birthday, I woke up to one of the worst hangovers and all I wanted to do was sleep :( There is such a thing as too much wine. 

Here are some of my favorite photos.

Tea Party

Tea Party

I love to get the girls together for a tea party! It is a fun way to celebrate with girlfriends in a way that doesn't involve a night of drinking. It brings you back to a simpler time where you aren't looking at the phone every two seconds.  Taking flowers from the garden and adding a couple of special touches makes a magical setting. 

I have been collecting tea cups since my teen years and I love that that every teacup tells its own story. What is your favorite memory that revolves aroung tea?

I would rather have nothing but tea

Welcome Willy!

Welcome Willy!

I would like to officially welcome the newest member of the Twist Family - Willy!! The moment I saw him for the first time was so magical that it brought tears to my eyes. I was overjoyed with emotion that is hard to describe (most new dog owners probably know what I am talking about). I believe the same can be said for him as well as he was just as excited to be coming to a new home. 

Please enjoy all things Willy below.

European Vacation

I can't believe it has already been 6 months since I got back from my European adventure. A trip my husband and I had been planning since we got back from our honeymoon in Greece. It was hard to decide on what cities we wanted to explore as there are so many we wanted to visit.  We decided on London, Venice, Vienna and Monte Carlo which were all places that I had been dreaming of. It was such a whirlwind with so many amazing experiences - here are just a few of them.  

 

We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us.

Melissa in Montebello

It is always nice to escape the routine and go on a mini adventure -  and it's hard to find anything better than Montebello! I had seen several images on the web and was amazed at how magical this place looked. It definitely lived up to its expectations. The most beautiful log cabin in the woods took me back to a simplier time.

I also got to check an item off of my bucket list which was dog sledding. It definately created a memory that I will never forget!
