    a cancun vacation

    We took our first real spring break this past year with a trip to Cancun, Mexico. Jake and I love traveling, and do it as much as our schedules allow us to. Usually we travel to where we can do a lot of walking and outdoor adventures, so going to an all-inclusive was a bit outside of our comfort zone. I’m happy to say that we had an amazing time. 80 degrees in March is unheard of for Minnesotans. As soon we arrived, we jumped right into our swimming suits, and pretty much lived in them the entire week. Remember that blog post I shared with what I packed for…

    Summer Plans

    Plans for summer are finally starting to come together. Jake and I have been talking about summer plans since March, and for a while we weren’t sure everything we were planning was going to happen, but finally we have made plans and taken time off work for our adventures. The first part of summer was a move at work. My work’s office made a big move a few weeks ago and I’m loving it. My commute has gone down 50 percent since we moved and I have a ton more time in the mornings and in the evenings to get to the gym, get to the grocery store, and all…
