Making memories in Mexico! 

Lea Michele was in total bliss as she vacationed with Matthew Paetz, her boyfriend of six months, on Christmas Day 2014. The Glee star, 28, sported a white bikini, while her aspiring actor-beau wore a pair of printed swimming trunks, as they frolicked on the sandy beach. 

Days later, on Dec. 30, Michele reflected on her whirlwind year. "Looking back on 2014 and I couldn't be more grateful," she wrote via Instagram.

"So many amazing experiences and adventures.. I feel truly blessed and thankful to be surrounded each day by the most incredible friends and family who have been with me through thick and thin.” The photo collage included a romantic shadowy snapshot of her holding hands with her love. 


The couple met on the set of Michele's music video for her single "On My Way" in April 2014, and their relationship has moved along quickly ever since. In September, Michele and Paetz moved in together, further cementing the seriousness of their commitment.
