I’m super excited to share today’s blog post with you today because it’s written by a very special guest writer, my husband, Eric! He’s a better writer than I am and a powerful force behind My Life Well Loved. I’m truly honored to have him here to share the first part of our Cancun trip with you. He made me tear up when I read this post he wrote. <3
Before we get into the post, I have to share with you my favorite beach travel essential! This power duo of Body Firming Foam and Trim Liquid Collagen is a set I add into my routine during swimsuit season. The Body Firming Foam is designed to tone and tighten the appearance of targeted areas and TRIM was awarded the best weight management product is formulated to inhibit fat storage, improve muscle tone and restore youthful skin. When you buy in the bundle, you get extra savings + stack my code HEATHER for an additional $10 off!
Wow, so this is what it feels like to write a post for your wife’s blog. I feel like there is so much pressure on me but I am going to try and do whatever Heather always does and just be myself and try to be as real as possible to you, the readers.
When I first started thinking about how I wanted to approach talking about our recent Anniversary Cancun trip I thought about doing it as more of a review of the resort, which I will do and then I also thought about just giving the highlights of the trip, but finally I decided on talking about the most important part of the trip and why our Cancun trip was even able to occur in the first place and that would be my wife, Heather.

On September 6th we will have been married for 9 years, which is the loose excuse we gave for going on our recent trip to Excellence Cancun Riviera. When I say loose excuse, it is because even if it wasn’t our Anniversary I know we would still try to go on a trip together. Each vacation no matter how big or small, Heather and I look at our trips and experiences together as investments in our relationship. Whether it is a big trip like we did this past time or a small weekend getaway this provides us time to slow down and discuss what is important in our lives.

For me, it gives me additional time to reflect on how thankful that I am married to such a strong and independent woman. Heather is truly the hardest working person I know and it encourages me to be a better husband every day. Heather and I always joke about how we complement each other but it is completely true.
One of the things I love most about Heather is that every person Heather meets she makes them feel like she is their best friend. Heather is 100% real with each person she meets and she is incredible in encouraging them in any and all of their desires. Also did I mention Heather is a complete smoke show, absolutely gorgeous. With that being said we could not have asked for a better vacation to reinvest in our marriage and just enjoy each others company. Now onto the highlights of our Cancun trip…
For me the first part of any trip begins with the planning, and in all actuality, this is one of my favorite parts of any trip. I love doing research to find the best location, best deal, best restaurants, excursions, you name it. Part of the enjoyment of planning, not only comes from my semi OCD about a few things, but also it gets me excited about the future. When you are going through a rough day at work, it is always nice to know you have a goal to look forward to in the future.

Great job Eric! Looking forward to the resort review! Bryan is just like you when it comes to the planning….I call him my travel agent! I want input, but he does all the legwork and actually enjoys it. Bleh! not me! He’s like that on every military trip too! He researches and books the hotels and has all the details loosely ironed out. 😀 Haha! Jealous of your getaway! Looks beautiful! We sure could use one….soon, soon…
Great job, Eric!!
I love this post…it truly shows how much your husband loves and appreciates you. Having the chance to spend time with our loved ones is such a great gift.
Happy Anniversary and great job Eric!
Your trip looks amazing
