Sugarlaws: Living Sweetly.

If you guys follow me on Instagram, you’ve probably seen some of my amazing photos from our beach vacation!  I’m still sorting through the hundreds of photos I took with my real (non-phone) camera, so I’ll probably post those later in the week! 

It was such an amazing trip — after a crazy stressful year of buying our house, jobs, cars, learning the ropes of life in Houston (side note: I’m in Houston Magazine this month!  Go pick it up and see me!) and everything else, we’ve been in desperate need of a vacation.  A real do-nothing, lay-on-the-beach, chill-24-7 vacation.

And that’s what we got!  We went to Cabo and just loved it.  The beaches were beautiful, the food was amazing, the weather, the travel — everything was just perfect. 

But the highlight of the whole trip, hands down, was that the hotel, after I tweeted to them, found my blog and decided to create a special surprise!  When we came home to our room one night, we found a cake made in the shape of my iPhone case, which is a Sugarlaws sketch!  I couldn’t believe my eyes — I actually teared up a little.  I couldn’t believe they’d do such a sweet, lovely thing!  It was such an incredible trip and you’ll be seeing more of my photos soon, but for now:

A picture of the cake.

And because I know the obvious question is “Where did you stay?”, I’ll tell you.  We stayed at the One and Only Palmilla, which was mind-bogglingly beautiful and I will go back in a heartbeat.  I’m already counting down the days!

    That cake is too cool! (And it’s even cooler that it was a surprise for you!) Sounds like an incredible trip!

    By the way I think it is time to catch up one-on-one. This vacation sounds really amazing and I want to hear all about it.

    Katy, that’s really awesome! Hotels are really great now adays with leaving special items, but I’ve never seen one bake a whole cake! That is super awesome! Whoo Hoo, I’ll have to check you out in Houston Magazine.

    That’s fantastic Katy! The Hotel looks incredible. My husband and I leave for Cabo this Saturday (return trip as so much to do and perfect for the ad vide photographer :)) , I will try to take a sneak peak at this amazing Hotel.
    Oh congrats on being in Houston Magazine this month

    If you’re planning to sell your home in the next few months, nothing is more important than knowing what your home is worth. I would love to help you with a Comprehensive Market Analysis and an action plan to prepare your home to get top dollar.

    How sweet of them! Nothing beats the happiness that you will experience when you go on a vacation after being busy for a long long time. I am already excited to see the hotel pics and of course, Cabo!
