I Wish I Was Here: Tulum, Mexico

I briefly mentioned that I just spent a week in Tulum. My friends and I rented a house in town and arrived just in time to ring in the new year by jumping into our pool. While having 7 of us in a house threatened to get a little Real World: Tulum (if not Lord of the Flies) we not only made it out alive but had a great time.  We rented bikes and rode to the beach, swam in a cenote, checked out the Mayan ruins, drank micheladas, and ate our weight in ceviche

After a week trudging through Chicago's slush and snow, I'd like nothing more than to head right back down there.
I'd spend the day walking on the beach
and then head back to the house
have drinks by the pool
maybe we'd head up to the roof for the sunset
and then I'd jump off the balcony into the plunge pool.

Not too bad, eh?


  1. Whoa! Looks like a cool spot and you look adorable! Is that a Mociun swimsuit?

  2. Thanks Kate! It is Norma Kamali ( or$98-BILL.aspx). I am a one piece loyalist and it is by far the best I've found.

    Hannah! Found the place on VRBO (
