It was just one of those times that you know you’ll all be sitting around talking about for years and telling your kids about. The memories you’ll hold on to forever.
And a HUGE congratulations to Mr. John Reed and Mrs. Rebecca Loflin!!!
JL and I headed out Thursday to catch our flight and got to Cancun late that night. We were the last ones to arrive at our house, but thats not a bad thing at all when you walk up and are greeted by your family singing the “Ugandan welcome” song which is a favorite of ours haha.
The only thing we had on the agenda Friday was rehearsal that night, so we spent the day by the water. We found out about an abandoned hotel near by with a lagoon so a group of us decided to go check it out.
IT. WAS. SO. FUN.
I love the water.
I love the ocean.
I love warm weather.
I love swimming.
I was in my element.
We stayed there pretty much as long as we could laughing and jumping and diving down to the bottom.
(p.s. swimmer creds to college-age mama!)
Saturday morning we woke up and it was wedding day!! Whoop whoop!!
It was such a relaxing, easy-going day and I think everyone was just really loving life haha.
Rebecca was such a beautiful bride and she has such great taste that everything looked absolutely like a dream. And I had such a blast fulfilling my bridesmaid duty…no shoes and crazy beach hair is the way to go! Plus those dresses she picked out for us….love.

Sunday we ventured out with the family and had some fun getting our feet nibbled on! Y’all that has got to be the weirdest feeling on the planet. JL and I came back to the house a little early to spend some time on the beach together and it was heavenly.
We headed out on Monday but not before a few hours down by the ocean. Ally and I played in the waves for at least an hour doing the “soul surfer” move, as we call it haha.
Really thankful for such a beautiful, sunny weekend with our family and really excited for the newest couple in the married club!!!
