#weekend10 – Mexico trip

This #weekend10 is a little unfair since last week (and the weekend) was spent lingering on the luxurious white, sandy beaches and turquoise waters of Mexico’s Mayan Riveria. What an unbelievable trip! I have never been to Mexico, so it was another life adventure for me to experience the culture and beauty of this corner of our pretty little planet. We spent the week being spoiled beyond compare with our own personal pool, a private beach and our very own covered beach cabanas, world class private chefs and butlers, and the best-of-the-best at our disposal. I feel very fortunate and grateful for this experience and couldn’t have asked for a better group of people to go with. It was my first family trip with the entire Buck clan and it was so much fun. There isn’t a single minute I would leave out. (Excluding our post travel bug. But that’s another story).

I have 10 photos, but so many more to post. If you’d like to see more, keep checking back. I have plenty more to post.

Hope you all had a great weekend. What did you do this weekend? I’d love to hear! In the meantime, here is my #weekend10! Enjoy!


I woke up for the sunrise. Every. Single. Day.


Sunscreen. Loads of sunscreen!

Snorkeling with this cutie pie. (Sidenote: look at those eyes! Same color as the sea!)

Naptime in the cabanas. 

Our trip to Chichén Itzá was amazing! And a little hot.

Swimming hole.

Our own coconut trees on the property. We may or may not have knocked a few riper ones down to drink the water.

Puerto Morelos. The cutest little Mexican fishing village you ever did see.

Al Fresco dining at “home.”

The End. 

Not pictured: Shopping. Snorkeling with sharks. Deep sea fishing. Sushi with the tuna the boys caught that day. Napping in hammocks. Hans – our butler. Celia – our maid. Our pool. And so much turquoise water.

#weekend10 – week 4

Wow! What a weekend! We had a graduation, end of school, 2 photoshoots, Spoleto, lots of trip prep (yayyy Mexico!), ice cream, and an ear infection just to mix things up a little. I am armed with so much medication for our trip, I look like a traveling pharmacy. But we made it through and hopefully will be floating in blue waters by this time next week.

Here is what we have had going on this weekend! What did you do this weekend? I would love to know!

The garden bounty is just starting to roll in.Graduation from one of the best teachers I have ever known. We will miss you, Miss T.Goofball graduates.

Last day of school FroYo treat! Can you tell they are excited? (iPhone photo)

From my first shoot on Saturday Morning. Why I don’t shoot more babies is beyond me. She was delicious and so sweet!

Speaking of delicious and sweet….this little guy is frommy Saturday afternoon shoot. Ice cream + kids + camera = tons of cute photos.

Sultry lowcountry summer afternoons are amazing. (iPhone photo)

Just watching the storms roll in…. (iPhone photo)


And finally…a little trip prep. (iPhone photo)


And to cap it off, I am just going to share the most special photo. I simply can’t keep all this cuteness to myself! Enjoy!

time for summertime

Oh summer…has found me again like a coy lover. I want to float around in the wake of her gentle, cool waves and bright blue skies sipping icy cold drinks and munching on juicy, chin dripping watermelon. I want to swing gently in the embrace of her branches listening to the chirping on the crickets while her warm breath caresses my prickly, brown summer skin. I want to lay on my back in her cool grass as the day drifts slowly by like the cottony clouds over my head.

I am ready to be in love with you again, sweet summer. I am yours for the taking.

#weekend10 – week 3

Wow. This was harder than I thought it would be over this busy weekend. You see, I have been on a 5 day shooting bender (Trust me when I say this…I am not complaining. I am extremely grateful for the work). In the midst of these busy weeks of hauling gear in and out of the car and repacking bags 2 times a day, the last thing I usually want to do is pick up my camera again. It feels like tight underwear after a while. Something you need to detach from immediately. Plus, there is an overall lack of time I seem to have right now as I edit jobs, shoot, slip in some design work, end the school year and gear up for an amazing summer vacation trip next week! (Uno mas margarita, por favor.)

At any rate – here they are…my #weekend10. What did you do this weekend? I would love to hear from you.

Can someone hit the pause button on these quiet evenings at home for me please? Thanks!A sweet gift from a client in honor of my sweet sister who I lost a about a month ago.I think I consumed about a gallon of these. Summer picnic with friends. (iPhone photo)These blue eyes…they slay me!Supermom Caitlin…she is my hero!A little shopping. A little art scavenger hunt with my guy. It’s officially summer. (iPhone photo)Grow little babies…grow!

What you can’t see: Work. Work. More work. Some quiet time with my bestie. A little spring cleaning. A visit with my sister. A happy homecoming. Sleepovers. Champagne. Zzzquil (cause a girl has to sleep eventually). The windiest beach I ever did shoot a photo on. Lots and lots of tea (to balance the champagne and Zzzquil). Clean doggie. And my ever growing garden!
