Those of you who follow along on Instagram may know I had a trip planned to Denmark and Italy at the end of April. My boyfriend has been training for a cycling race over there since last year, which was unfortunately cancelled last week. After weighing all our options, we opted for a week in Mexico instead of taking our trip as planned sans race. Even though I can’t wait to relax on the beach, I don’t recommend cancelling a vacation last minute – it’s disappointing, stressful and can be costly.

The upside of the sudden change is the incredible weather I have to look forward to in a few short weeks. It’s going to be 30+ degrees where we are staying and I’m already getting excited to break out all my summer clothes and binge read books in the sunshine….
