We had a wonderful time at Couples Swept Away in Negril, Jamaica!! The resort was beautiful, the food was outstanding and the activities were plentiful (including lots of lounging on the beach!). Although we generally like to explore new places, if I were to book another Caribbean resort in the future, it would be very […]

What are these strange cloths covering my legs? After waking up a bit earlier than normal, we packed up everything and headed to one final breakfast. Dining with a view – I’m going to miss having my breakfast already made! Smoothie – with a few tbsp of muesli sunken deep down I was just going […]

We are shipwrecked and cannot leave the island. The only way off is to swim! It is true. Luckily, I’m a pretty good swimmer. And while we don’t want to leave, we are excited to go home. I love home too. Breakfast this morning was delightful: This bowl of muesli, fruit and “granola” turned into […]

This past summer when we had to skip our annual family beach trip to put energy into the bakery, I was really, really sad. I LOVE THE OCEAN. The beach. Everything about it. I always feel calm when waves are in sight, and a year without touching the ocean breaks my heart. Those emotions are […]

We’re having a wonderful time so far. Last night we enjoyed a beachy cocktail hour followed by dinner at a Thai restaurant here. We had an amazing meal – a sample plate of Thai appetizers followed by Green Curry Shrimp and Oyster Chili Pan-Seared Snapper. We ended the night with a plate of dessert bites […]
