Hi, lovelies! 💗 I hope you’re having an amazing Thursday! Wow, it’s been a minute since my last post! Last week, I went on vacation to Cabo San Lucas. It was an absolute dream and I couldn’t wait to sit down and chat about the trip!
A few months back, Alejandro gave me a call and told me that he won a trip to Cabo at work. I hadn’t been out of the country since I was five years old. We were both excited and anxious all at the same time. February couldn’t come quickly enough!
Our Vacation to Cabo San Lucas
In January, we went to apply for my passport. Everything started to get surreal at that point. I was so ecstatic! Just a month later, we landed in Mexico and checked into Secrets Puerto Los Cabos Golf & Spa Resort.
Near the end of our trip, Alejandro proposed to me on the beach. It was the sweetest moment. Whenever I think back to that day, I can’t help but smile.
Our vacation to Cabo left me with a feeling of wanderlust. Sometimes, I can be a bit of a homebody, but I want to travel to as many places as possible. Cabo, I miss you already!
Secrets Puerto Los Cabos Golf & Spa Resort
After a four hour flight, we took a bus ride to our destination. Cabo was absolutely stunning. I fell in love with its architecture, dreamy mountains, and clear blue waters. When we got to the resort, my jaw dropped. I’ve never been anywhere quite as beautiful in my whole life. Plus, it was so fancy!
Alejandro and I checked in and headed to our suite.
“Woah,” I remember him saying as soon as we opened the door, “This is so cool!”
Since our suite was on the fifth floor, we got a clear view of the pacific ocean and mountains. I remember being so in awe of the scenery and wanted to be outside as much as possible!
Yummy Food and Gorgeous Scenery!
On day two of our vacation to Cabo, we spent the afternoon in the pool. I don’t remember how many piña coladas I drank lol! They were so tasty! We also got spoiled since the resort was all inclusive. Alejandro and I ate at the Barefoot Grill, Market Café, Oceana, El Patio, Seaside Grill, and Portofino! Can’t forget about the coffee at Coco Café–LOVE!
My favorite menu items were the fish tacos at Seaside Grill and the linguini at Portofino, but Oceana had the most stunning view.
We got to enjoy our dinner beachside at night. I’m getting emotional just thinking about that special moment. If I close my eyes, I can see Alejandro and I talking over dinner, taking pictures, and looking out into the pacific ocean. I’ll remember that night my whole life. 💛
Day three was just so magical. As part of the trip, we were able to pick an excursion, ranging from a spa day, sailing, and even a dirt bike tour. We decided to go sailing via Cabo Sails!
Everyone left the resort at 9am and it took about 40 minutes to get to our excursion. It was definitely worth the long ride, though!
Alejandro got to go paddle boarding and he had so much fun! I wasn’t confident enough in my swimming abilities, so I decided to chill out on the boat with a fruity drink and lunch lol! I did, however, get some awesome shots of Alejandro on the paddle board!
Also. I snapped a few selfies of my own!
We saw so many amazing sights that morning, like Playa del Amor (Lover’s Beach) and The Arch of Cabo San Lucas. Everyone got super excited because a couple of whales swam past us (I could only spot their fins, though!)
I learned a lot that day about Cabo’s history. Shout out to Pepe, who was such a knowledgable and awesome first mate!
Getting Engaged to Alejandro!
On February 17th, 2019, I got engaged to my best friend and the love of my life. I’ll try not to tear up too much as I write my engagement story. (Truth be told, I’m already failing at this lol!)
After our sailing trip, I was on cloud nine and felt so grateful for those wonderful memories. When we got back to the resort, Alejandro and I took a nap and chilled for a while. We were both a little tired…and sunburned. We later decided to buy a few souvenirs and walk around the resort for a bit.
Alejandro brought a book bag with him “just in case we wanted to take pictures.” I was already getting a little suspicious because he kept asking if I wanted to check out the sunset at the beach.
We walked around the resort, hand in hand. There was one of those giant Jenga games on our way to the beach. We played a few rounds (because we’re dorks) and got to the beach just in time for the sunset.
We sat down, and at this point, my stomach was in knots. I was super nervous! I stared at the giant ocean and it felt like I was in a dream. After watching the sunset for a few minutes, Alejandro looked me in the eyes and cleared his throat. I could hear the nervousness in his voice!
“I just wanted to say thank you so much for everything, Nunzia. It’s been such an honor being with you all of these years…” Alejandro started.
At this point, my head felt like it was floating over my body. Alejandro’s proposal was short, but sweet–perfectly imperfect. He was shaking as he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. My eyes were puffy, I was a nervous wreck, and my heart was filled with love for him.
He says that the moon and sun were both present in the sky at that very moment, but I honestly can’t remember. Our relationship was flashing before my eyes.
Those belly laugh moments, the day he asked me to be his girlfriend, our hard times, all of those nights we spent together spilling our inner thoughts, everything. The memories were so present and intense that I started to ball my eyes out!
On our way back to our suite, a thought washed over me, suddenly (kind of like waves crashing peacefully against the shore). I get to spend the rest of my life with the kindest, gentlest man I’ve ever met.
I hope that you liked this more personal style post! It’s been quite a busy month and I’m so happy to be sharing this exciting news with you! 💞🏖️💍
Thank you so much for reading about our vacation to Cabo! Have a beautiful day, lovelies! x
