I grew up in Southern California and when you grow up there, the beach is where you spend your summers, winters, falls, and springs. All year round the beach is a beautiful place to stroll, go for a swim, and enjoy beautiful pacific ocean sunsets. And the cool laid back vibe is pretty great. Which is why it's no surprise that I said often, "When I grow up, I want to live on the beach."
Well people, I grew up! I live 4 blocks from the beach now. Like my husband has said since we moved here a couple weeks ago, " When you have a goal in mind, you gotta set the gears in motion to make sure it gets checked off." Our family goal was to live so close to the beach we could walk. Took baby steps by settling in Tepic Nayarit first. Which was 3 hours away. And now, we are 15 minutes walking.
Bucerias is one of the most prettiest and cleanest beaches in this area. The town is quaint and has all of the essentials for tourist attraction. Lots of Canadians and Americans live here year round. And the water is lukewarm all year round.
It has been my life's dream to live by the beach. And we have finally achieved our/my dream. I couldn't have done it without the undying support of my husband. He's always so positive and makes moves so that we get closer and closer to our goals.
So I say to you: Go for your goals, no matter how small or big or maybe trivial they may seem to some. There is no magic to it, just get started and make moves so that little by little, you get to where you want to be. And being where you want to be is where you achieve HAPPINESS.
P.S. Have your wedding down here, it's got the most beautiful sunsets you ever did see ;). Perfect for destination weddings!
