Our Trip to the Eastern Caribbean

We recently got back from being on a cruise and it was 1o days of bliss! I had never been on a cruise and didn’t have too many expectations. Our experience far exceeded what I thought it would be. The weather was beautiful, the beaches we went to were paradise, and the activities and everything about the ship was fabulous. I would absolutely do it again! I did miss my little Sophia but I must admit it was nice to have a break. Next time, I think I’ll bring her along. I know she would love it!

Here are just a few pics from our vacation.

    Oh my gosh, so jealous! That looked incredible! I had so much fun watching Sophie, she is so fun and of course adorable. It’s crazy how fast she’s growing!

  2. You two look like two honey mooners. Sigh. So glad to hear you enjoyed your vacation even tho I have to admit to harboring some ill willed feelings towards you right now. But I’ll get over it. How romantic and looks like you had incredibly wonderful weather.

    Oh now how can I possibly enjoy our “delightful” fall weather when I’ve seen your photos? Swoon, I’d so love to go somewhere like that with my hubs before we’re too old to move, lol. Of course he’s not so excited about things like that since he lived on Hawaii for 2 yrs. while in the Air Force. He lived across street from Aloa Moana shopping center, not fair. Then he got transferred to Tucson where we met. Almost 45 yrs. later here we are, two old folks. Happy weekend.

    • Hi Jane!

      We really did have such a great time. You should go on a cruise. You and your husband would love it. There are so many fun things to do on the ship. The shows were amazing. They had comedy nights, bingo, cards games, and great music. The service was awesome and the trip was very affordable.

      It’s wonderful to hear you have been married for 45 years. That is a long time. It must be a great feeling to have had a partner for that long. I’m sure you guys have been through a lot- good and bad! What’s your secret?!

      So good to hear from you Jane. Enjoy the fall weather. I love the change of seasons. Hope you have a great weekend.


  3. Oh what fun!!!!! I have never been on a cruise either!!! How did your sweet little Sophia do?? I bet she was a rock star and did great!!
