Last year I went on my birthday vacation with my ex-boyfriend (our birthdays fall over the same week in July), and we told each other we would vacation over our birthdays every year from then out. For some reason, a piece of me said I couldn't go on a birthday vacation, no matter how badly I wanted to; as if that tradition had to die with the relationship. I knew it would be a much greater challenge to round up my girlfriends for a trip to Mexico, but I didn't even consider it an option.
Then over the weekend something inside me clicked. Why couldn't I just reach out to some of my closest girlfriends and test the waters? Who knows, it'd probably be even better creating new memories with my closest friends. We've always talked about a girls trip, so I chose a location (Tulum) and began my research. Two of my closest friends are already seriously interested, and I don't think they know how much that means to me, how much this trip means to me. Details are still in the works, but whether it's Mexico or a visit to my sister in Seattle, I am more than capable of going on a birthday vacation and I will be going.
On a side note, these are a few late spring pieces I'm loving (plus this dress). I apologize for the lack of color, but as I get older I just lean more towards neutrals. Here's to hoping I can shop some of these pieces once my trip is locked down!
