One of my former co-workers in Mexico, NC, is now a wedding coordinator at a large resort in the Riviera Maya. Hence, the reason I’ve been posting photos of wedding shots. She calls her photos #myofficetoday. Don’t we all wish this was our office any day of the week.?!?

Happy weekend everyone.!!

sometimes paradise is a love song part 6…

I have always been a fan of Marc Anthony especially his song, “You Sang to Me”. But when I heard this duet with La Quinta Estación (The Fifth Season), I fell hard. The song is called “Recuerdame” or “Remember Me”. Enjoy.! And I hope your weekend is wonderful 🙂

English translation
Remember me

“Remember me,
when you sleep and I guess what you dream of,
when far away from our bed you think of me, remember me.
Remember me,
when I part and don’t return to our home,
when coldness and sadness fuse and embrace you, remember me.
Remember me
when you look into the eyes of the past
when I don’t wake up in your arms
and you become invisible to me, to me
Remember me, loving you,
looking into your eyes, tying myself to your life
Remember me, loving you
waiting for you patiently without grudges without measures
Remember me, Remember me,
that my soul has been tattooed to your skin.

Remember me,
when you feel your soul is restless
if desire and your love won’t warm me up, remember me.
Remember me
when you look into the eyes of the past
when I don’t wake up in your arms
and you become invisible to me, to me
Remember me, loving you,
looking into your eyes, tying myself to your life
Remember me, loving you
waiting for you patiently without grudges without measures
Remember me, Remember me,
that my soul has been tattooed to your skin.

Remember me, loving you,
looking into your eyes, tying myself to your life
Remember me, Remember me,
that my soul has been tattooed to your skin.”

sometimes paradise is a love song part 5…

I love Sin Bandera’s “Suelta Mi Mano”. My ex-novio used to have this song on his playlist and it became a personal favorite of mine. The emotional chord it strikes always finds a place into my soul. I almost always cry when I hear this song. Ah amor

English translation
Let go of my hand

“No, there’s no need for me to understand it
since reason has never been useful to the heart
the heart doesn’t think

No, my love, why do you insist?
you don’t have to explain anything to me
I’ll always love your freedom
no matter how much that hurts.

Yes, I understand that you want us to talk
that sometimes you need to know how I have been
but I’m not sure if I want to know how you have been
to live like this, to keep going on like this
thinking about you

Let go of my hand, please
understand I have to go
If you can’t feel this love anymore
then there’s nothing else for me to say
Don’t say another word, please
I understand you but you have to understand me
each word deepens the pain
and a tear wants to emerge

Please, don’t stop me
In the end I always find a way to keep going and to live
even if right now I have none
No, my love, it’s not worth it
why do you want to call after me
when the one I used to be is not going to be there
this is the last scene

Yes, I understand that you want us to talk
that sometimes you need to know how I have been
but I’m not sure if I want to know how you have been
to live like this, to keep going on like this
thinking about you

Let go of my hand, please
understand I have to go
If you can’t feel this love anymore
then there’s nothing else for me to say
Don’t say another word, please
I understand you but you have to understand me
each word deepens the pain
and a tear wants to emerge

Let go of my hand, please
understand I have to go
If you can’t feel this love anymore
then there’s nothing else for me to say
Don’t say another word, please
I understand you but you have to understand me
each word deepens the pain
and a tear wants to emerge”

Did you know that until fairly recently, this lighthouse where 10th avenue meets the beach was the tallest structure in Playa del Carmen? There was a law that prohibited any building from being taller than the height of el faro or more than 3 floors.! Of course, there were a few buildings that got away with that limitation by agreeing with the law in principle, but in reality they would increase the building by just a little during construction or count the ground floor as zero.!! jajaja

I’ve heard that the law has been updated to allow for an extra floor now. So instead of only three floors, buildings can now have four like the newly built Hotel Cacao at http://hotelcacao.com.mx/. I don’t believe Playa will turn into Cancun anytime soon, so no need to worry about skyscrapers.

El faro is in a great location next to Zenzi Beach Club and the appropriately named Residences El Faro . Not only is el faro beautiful, but I’ve also heard it has a romantic spirit. Many lovers have met at the top of the lighthouse for a passionate rendezvous.! Ah amor….

sometimes paradise is a love song part 4…

No Me Doy Por Vencido” by Luis Fonsi is the first song I learned to sing in Spanish.!! For some reason, the song was easy for me to learn. The words and the cadence all worked to improve my Spanish. I actually think somewhere I have a video of me singing this song in a Mexican karaoke bar.!! jajajajaja… But I will spare you all the gruesome details 🙂 This song holds many happy memories for me. I hope you enjoy it too.!

I Don’t Give Up

“I stay silent
I am like an sleeping boy
Who can wake up
With just a noise
When you least expected it
When I least imagined it
I know one day I won’t hold myself and I will go and I look at you

And I say it calling out to you
And you laugh and you take me as crazy
Because you don’t know how long in my dreams you have lived
Nor you suspect when I named you

I, I don’t give up
I want a world with you
I swear it’s worth the wait, and wait and wait with a sigh
For a sign from destiny
I don’t get tired, I don’t give up, I don’t surrender

I have flower in my pocket
Withered of searching for a woman to love me
And its scent until the spring comes
And teaches me what I had not learned about life
Which shines more each day,
Because I am just a step away of winning the joy
Because the heart rises like an raging storm
Since that moment I saw you

I, I don’t give up
I want a world with you
I swear it’s worth the wait, and wait and wait with a sigh
For a sign from destiny
I don’t get tired, I don’t give up, I don’t surrender

This silence hides too much words
I don’t stop, whatever happens I will follow

I, I don’t give up
I want a world with you
I swear it’s worth the wait, and wait and wait with a sigh
For a sign from destiny
I don’t get tired, I don’t give up, I don’t surrender”

I fell in love with this song back in the spring of 2012. It was so fun and light and it was a good song to practice my Spanish on 🙂 Plus I really liked the dance at the end of the video. And I secretly wanted the dress Marta Sanchez is wearing.!! Oh yeah, and Carlos Baute is cute….jajaja

“Maybe it was no coincidence for us to meet
Maybe this was destiny.
I want to fall asleep in your chest again
and then be awakened by your kisses.

Your sixth sense still dreams of me,
I know that we will be together soon.
Your naughty smile lives with me,
I know I will soon be in your way.

You know that I am hanging in your hands
so do not let me fall
You know I am hanging in your hands.

I sent you hand written poems
I sent you songs by 4:40
I send you pictures of us dinning in Marbella
and of our trip to Venezuela.
So that you remember me and remember that my heart is hanging in your hands.
Be careful, careful, I will not lose hope of being with you.
I want to taste all the forbidden in you
I want to catch the dusk kissing all of your tenderness
My girl, my life, I need you”
