Cayman Islands Part 2

The sun was warm, strong and made playing in the water that much sweeter. We snorkled most days and enjoyed hours of reading by the pool, in the hammock or on a beach towel. We checked out local places, and picked up some Tortuga Rum, Rum Cakes and other fun treats to bring back home. We munched on tasty coconut popsicles, watermelon soda and banana chips from the local grocery store in the afternoons by the beach.

Mahler -4The smell of fresh ocean everyday, full bellies every night and copious amounts of sleep made for a week beyond unreal. It was a week I could do every year if I could. I came back feeling refreshed, and ready to tackle the rest of the school-year.

It makes me think every break I have should feel that good. I know I struggle with unplugging, but when you do, it’s better than you can every imagine.



Cayman Islands Part 1

Two weeks ago, my family and I flew to the Grand Cayman Islands in the Carribbeans for our first family vacation in years.I had been running pretty ragged between work, babysitting and fighting a nasty cold.

I had wanted warm water, sunshine,beautiful beaches and this trip was exactly what I needed!

Happy Monday! I know I swooned over some of the dresses at the Academy Awards, anybody watch them besides me?
