Man & I will celebrate our big 12 this May. We honeymooned in Mexico, and when I drink my favorite margaritas, I forget to take pictures, so maybe you will let me slide by with these pictures from our getaway. The resort was beautiful and despite some set backs, we had so much fun together.
Man is so adventurous, he always gets me to do something I would NEVER do by myself and our first official trip together was no different. I hate to think of all the things in life I would miss out on without him. Twelve years seems to have flown by – I still feel the same, but when I look at our wedding photos, I think “Wow, we look so young!”
Then there are those days when it feels like we’ve been married forever: “we reason through problems so differently”, “he’s so stubborn”, or the famous, “why doesn’t he just know what I want him to do?!” AND…that’s what the margaritas are for! Kidding!
Years ago, I came across an article about Tim Love (a local chef who I am admittedly a fan) and there was this margarita recipe. So I tried it….needless to say, many rounds later and it always gets compliments.
Margaritas for 4
8 oz silver tequila – try Patron
