Cruisin’

Hello bloggy friends! It’s definitely been awhile, and for that, I apologize. Things have been UBER busy and unfortunately I haven’t had much time to sit at the computer to enter a blog post. I did miss it and thankfully, today is the day that we are reunited! So, how are you doing? I hope your month of January is off to a good start. It has been super chilly here today – a rough -35 degrees celsius today! Let’s just say that I was hibernating. My in-laws, however, were boarding a cruise to Hawaii – LUCKY DUCKS!! I can’t help but feel a little jealous as I look out my window at all the snow we have.

I’m reminded of the cruise Matt and I took this past year to the Caribbean! It was in the late Spring, after Matt returned from his basic training. This was our first cruise and was kind of like our 2nd honeymoon. The trip lasted for 7 days and we were able to visit 6 different islands and it was AWESOME!

Those last two pictures I think are gorgeous and frame worthy 😉 . We were blessed with warm, sunny weather for the duration of our vacation.

Gros & Petite Pitons - St. Lucia

Probably the highlight of the trip was being close enough to view the GORGEOUS Gros & Petit Pitons in St. Lucia. Such a beauty view!!

Barbados

We were able to do a good amount of shopping and sightseeing, along with lots of relaxing , so it really was the best of both worlds! We also did a few excursions. A 4×4 off-road island adventure in Antigua (with a stop at one of their many beaches), and a botanical garden walk tour (where there was a really pretty waterfall and a dip in a hot springs). Our favourite one, though, was parasailing in St. Martin!

We had a fantastic time together on this vacation. So lovely to reconnect after months of being apart. We met some great people, had too much to eat and as you can see from our pictures, the sights were stunning. I pray we are able to go on another cruise in the near future!

Where did you take your favourite vacation? What was most memorable about it?
