Vacation + why I will never be able to disconnect.

I just returned from another Mexican adventure. Let me start with the simple fact that Mexico is always a good idea. Always. Two back to back trips further cemented my love for this country.

Guadalajara: Day 4

The finalé of our Guadalajara trip was unpredictable which is about the only thing that remained consistent about this vacation.

And you can trust your ol' girl Johanna, here because I just returned from an incredibly fulfilling trip to Mexico. <full recap next week> I didn't think it would ever be possible but I ACTUALLY relaxed.
