Ornament Tales 2015 – Mexico Honeymoon Trip

Ornament Tales 2015 – Post #2

I’m back again this year with another ornament tales post. As I mentioned in last year’s post, I love to collect ornaments during my travels and special moments. Each year, it is so fun for me to look over each ornament as I hang it on the tree and flash back in my mind to the memories associated with each ornament.

Today’s ornament tales come from our honeymoon in 2010. We took a cruise to Mexico, visiting Cozumel, Merida, and Progreso.

This piñata is perfect for bringing back memories of our time together in Mexico every year when we hang it on the tree. And, of course, the Spanish teacher in me couldn’t resist a sweet little piñata!

I also found this sweet little reindeer. I’m not sure exactly what drew me to it, but he really, really wanted to journey to the States. I could just feel it. The ornaments are made out of that special Mexican style clay pottery. They are very delicate, and I was so happy when they actually made it all the way back home unharmed.

The honeymoon was the first time The Hubs or I had ever been on a cruise, and we had an immensely grand time.

We ate way too much at the fancy dinners every night.

The one activity we both agreed upon was ziplining. I wasn’t scared on the actual cables, but I was terrified climbing up the tall wooden tower. It seemed so rickity to me, and I just knew it was all going to fall down any second, taking us with it!

We had a great time touring Progreso, which is the port city in the state of Yucatan in the Gulf of Mexico. I bought my ornaments in the cute little store you see in the background of this photo. We did the zip-lining earlier in the same day which is why my hair looks so crazy!

During one of our afternoons on land, we went shopping in Merida. I loved the quaint little shops we found there. We toured the Governor’s Mansion and surrounding area in downtown Merida.

It was so cool visiting all of the artisan shops. This guy was making blankets, and I wanted to buy every one of those beauties that the shop sold!

    What a couple of adorable ornaments. I love your reindeer, he’s so cute. I love picking up souvenirs when we travel. It’s lovely to look back on them in years to come and think of those fond memories you’ve made there.

    The ziplining looks really fun. I love things like that. We’ve got something called Go Ape near us. It’s basically high ropes and zip lines. It’s the best day out.

      Thanks, Sally! At first, I thought he was a cow for some reason! I had even called him a cow in my blog post originally! My hubby read the post and sent me a text telling me it wasn’t a cow. Haha…not sure how I got that wrong for five straight years!! 🙂

    Love your ornament. We also went to Mexico for our honeymoon, back in 2005. We returned this past summer to celebrate our 10 year anniversary and I also bought a special ornament while we were there. I wrote the year and event on it, and it hung next to our wedding photo ornament on our tree this year.
