There comes a time in your life when you need to take a step back and realize that some decisions are just not worth stressing out over. For instance, when it comes to the wedding, our biggest decision this week is the following: Do we go to Mexico or Jamaica for our honeymoon?

I know, right? First world problems, right there. Do we go with tequila or rum? Ancient ruins or the Bob Marley tour? Cool Mexicans or cool Jamaicans? Oh the decisions but decisions we must make! Should we just flip a coin and let destiny decide? Have you been to either (or both)? What would you recommend and why?

Either way we’re gearing up for a week full of sun, sand, surf, swim-up bars and reading as many books as we possibly can! A week with no responsibilities other than making sure we re-apply our sunscreen! Woo hoo!
