Holiday Wishes from the Whales

Like many of my fellow blogger bees, I’ve been MIA for a while due to the holidays. But I miss you guys, so I wanted to pop in briefly to say hi.

This Christmas has been an extra special one for multiple reasons: (1) My brother got married!! (2) My brother got married in Mexico, so we got to go to Mexico!! (3) The Whale family decided to spend Christmas in Mexico! (4) It’s the first Christmas Mr. Whale has spent with my family!

So far, we’re having a blast! Here’s a little teaser of what’s been going on. This is the dancer covered in lights who danced on stilts for much of the wedding reception. Yeah, that happened. I’m now basically convinced everyone should get married in Mexico.

Can you guess who’s not Latina?? That would be me, the ghostly white face in this picture

And not only have we had an AMAZING time, Mr. Whale and I are even more sure than ever that we belong together after some crazy adventures along the way. He was super nervous to leave the country, since it’s his first trip outside of the US. And even though we missed our flight to Mexico, had to fly to Guadalajara instead of our original destination, then take a taxi to the bus station, and then take a nine hour bus ride through the Mexican countryside to get to the hometown of my brother’s wife, we made it through without any cross words to each other.

I even cried a little sobbed in the airport when I thought we were not going to make it to Mexico in time for the wedding. But Mr. Whale took it in stride and didn’t complain at all. He’s a keeper

All in all, it’s been a fantastic holiday season. I can’t wait to see what adventures the future holds for us! Happy holidays, hive!

    I totally think it’s true what they say – traveling together can be the biggest “test” of a relationship. So glad you guys weathered all the adventures like pros – and how awesome is it to be in Mexico for Christmas?! Jealous!

    Good lord, thank god you’re safe after trekking through the Mexican countryside! I heard some parts can be pretty bad.
    ¡Felicitaciones a tu hermano y su hermosa esposa!
