Mexico took my breath away more times than I could keep count, and especially so during our visit to the Tulum ruins. While we are all about vacationing and kicking up our heels, we also wanted to get to know the country and some of it's history so we took a taxi from the resort and headed to the closest ruins. J and I were in awe while we walked through the ruins and listened to the tour guide tell us about the incredible history of the Mayan people. We fell in love with the home of Ixchel, the goddess of fertility, where you can still see the engravings on the walls of a baby and a woman giving birth in the squatting position. Mayan women used to leave gifts outside her door in exchange for her blessings, and standing in front of her home with baby bump in tow felt very special for us. Then there was the Tulum beach just beneath the historical cliff. It was glorious and all I wanted to do was jump into those waves!
My husband took such amazing photos during our trip, i'll always have the memories in my mind yes, but we have these beautiful images that we can always look back on as well. Love you J!
