Fabulous Trip! The Ultimate Sanity Break!


We are going on VACATION! VACATION PEOPLE! We are going to St. John with my Dad, Step Mom and little brother. I grew up on the East Coast so going to the Caribbean was part of the vacation schedule if we were lucky. I've been went to St. Maarten, St. Thomas, St. Barths, St. Lucia, Turks and Caicos, and Abacos Island. Lucky? Yes. Spoiled? Yes. Grateful? YES!

I haven't been to the Caribbean in a looong time. Thanks to my Dad we are going for a glorious 7 days. First we'll fly to his house in Virginia and then to St. John the following day.




I'll be eating here:

We need this. Hubby has been working so hard and we dodged the "Lupus bullet". We need to relax and remember that life is about being with people you love. Life is for living. Celebrating. That's what we're going to do.
Next week I will do a few posts about traveling and all the short cuts I'm doing. Traveling with a toddler is no joke. You have to be on your game or you will pay. I am ready!!! Bring it on Landon!

Sooo Jealous! You will have so much fun! I haven't been to that island but my parents were just there & loved it. Having lived on the East for 13 years I got to go to the caribbean all the time too - St. Maarten (3 times, love the french side!), Turks & Caicos, Harbour Island, Bermuda etc...Miss it, am sick of Hawaii - it just doesn't compare. Have a blast! Can't wait to hear all about it. Lots of snacks for the plan ride & I wrap a lot of little toys they can open. I pass them out 1 every couple hours or so.
