I have a couple of shots - not great ones - but at least a couple I can share. I'm hoping to have a couple more by the end of the week. I'll be honest - it sucks being home lol We totally fell in love with the resort and all over again with Mexico. We're so close to getting serious about retiring that it's hard to come home. It was harder for me this time around. I lost my job yesterday. I was told it was a business decision and that they aren't replacing me. Whatever. What I actually think is that my manager, who is a total idiot, didn't like me calling him out on stuff. He was my 3rd in about 13 months and the worst. A manager that the day before my last day before vacation actually said to me "what do you mean you're off next week" Yep - you heard right. Anyway, it is what it is and what's done is done. In some ways I'm relieved. So on to bigger and better things. I hope.

Sorry - I don't know why some of them are upside down. I reloaded them and they came out the same way. The rainbow came out after a quick shower right before our renewal ceremony. It's supposed to be really good luck so fingers crossed on that one (not so sure so far). Doug absolutely loved the cake top and knew immediately what it meant. He said "you even got the beer right" lol (Corona). I'm thrilled with how my rings looked but it is taking some getting used to. Our sand turned out beautifully and survived the trip home. Once we have our photos I'll add one onto the glass.
As an FYI for anyone going to Mexico, you can most definitely bring your bouquet back if you want if you're using real flowers. I did. And I got through customs with no problems because they're cut flowers, not plants. We completed the part of the customs form about fruit, vegetables, etc as a "yes" so that you do declare them to the agent but they sweep you through. The people ahead of us had one too. I was prepared for them to take it and when he said we could go, I said "you mean I can keep it?" and he laughed and said "I'm not even going there. I don't want that argument trying to take someone's wedding flowers." We checked the canada customs website before we left and found nothing that said we couldn't take it. I got it home but it did get a little beaten up, sprayed it with aerosol hairspray and hung it upside down to dry. It was absolutely gorgeous as you can see from the photos. Just a little tiny shop in Playa barely big enough to swing a cat but boy does he do a nice job on flowers.
Oh before I forget - thanks so much ladies for the tip on the two sided tape. It worked fantastic both on my necklace and on my dress straps. Kept both perfectly in place.
