La Luna De Miel…La Secuela

Every year on their wedding anniversary, my parents take a trip together. Sometimes it’s to the mountains and sometimes it’s to the beach, sometimes to a rural cabin in the wilderness and sometimes to a major city with thousands of things to do and see… but no matter the destination they make a point to run off somewhere together and celebrate the fact that they made it through another year of marital bliss.

I like this idea.

So following in their footsteps, Heath and I made a pact to take a regular anniversary trip of our own…a recurring honeymoon. Last year it was to San Francisco, but this year we opted to get a bit more adventurous and take a trip outside the country. Last night we clicked the “purchase” button for two tickets to Mexico City!

It might not be one of the first cities that comes to mind when you think “romantic getaway,” but as two kids who dorked out over stories of the Aztec pyramids and love eating tacos on the street…it’s sort of the perfect destination. Plus we will be rendezvousing with a dear friend and Mexico native upon arrival who can show us the town and help us do Mexico City like royalty.

    You’ll have to go to the Yucatan to see that pyramid…unless you visit the splendid Anthropology Museum! Don’t miss it, or Chapultapec, or SO many other sights. Glad you have a tour guide. It’s an amazing place.

  3. Sounds very romantic!

    Sweet. My hubby and I plan to do this, too! I love to travel but I wanna explore my country first and visit all the beautiful beaches here. I feel it more romantic in the beach. ❤

    Sounds like a wonderful plan. See as much of the world as you can while you have the chance! I’m so excited for the two of you.
    Love, HeathMom

  6. Wow! Have a great trip and happy anniversary!

    My fiancé and I are getting married this August. I adore this idea and think I may attempt to implement it for myself! Thanks for the great advice 🙂

  8. […] something beautiful on a blank canvas (in this case, our first home) does. So if I want to go to Mexico City for my second honeymoon, I will. And if I want to spend too much money on a goofy throw pillow, I’m going to do that […]
