playa del carmen, mexico

we spent a week in playa del carmen celebrating the wedding of my brother and brand new sister, joe and jacque. their week was muggy yet cozy. their celebration was simple yet charming and intimate. their love is delicate yet strong. they hired a photographer so you won’t see any of their wedding pictures here. what you will see is my children enjoying life and creating memories with their first cousins, colton and carrington. as kids, my sister and i always dreamed of having children the same age. our husbands would be tall and handsome and they would be the best of friends. we would live on the same street and would barbecue every weekend. well, life had different plans and now 3,000 miles separates us. watching our children play with abandon in playa del carmen was much like watching our childhood dream play out to the soundtrack of laughter and squeals. for seven days we were neighbors. for seven days our children had sleepovers, our husbands were inseparable, and we ate dinner together every night. it was magic. i could go on but i will spare you the mush and get right to the heart—some photographs of people i love enjoying the “good life” together in paradise.
