Glad you made it!

The woman who braided Skylar’s hair today here in Aruba is Jamaican and we talked Jamaica, ‘Mon. With her awesome accent.

HAVE FUN and do not waste one second of vacay time on blog stuff unless you want to and it’s fulfilling. But you don’t need me to tell you that :)

Agreed! Step away from the blog, Kath! You deserve a break.

Reply

54 Jen December 27, 2011 at 9:56 am

Yes, I also think it’s good to separate your personal life from your ‘professional’ life at times. Some things should just be experienced with the people you know, that are with you and in the moment – rather than online and with the world! Haha :) But you know, it can seem a little “invading” at times for everyone to see what you do even while on vacay!

Reply

55 Roxanne December 27, 2011 at 8:36 am

Have fun and I think Karen has a good thing going…. unplug from the blog for a week. We will still be here when you get back, don’t you worry!

Judging by the rafts on the lawn chairs, i’d say that’s a Couples resort! We went to Couples Swept Away on our honeymoon last month, and it was amazing! Have a great time!

66 Hannah @ eat, drink, and save money December 27, 2011 at 10:24 am

Don’t be afraid to get out of the “resort compound”. There are so many cool places for locals with real local food that actually stimulates their economy. Have fun! It is a beautiful place with the nicest people I have ever met.

67 Allison December 27, 2011 at 10:32 am

Okay, I have some serious envy right now. Last year the hubby and I went to Arizona for NYE and the year before that we went to Florida. It was wonderful. I wish we were going to a warm and sunny place this year but we are too busy/poor! Have a great time!

OMG, I love Jamaica! The boyfriend and I went in February and I seriously want to go back. I’m craving an island vacation right now. So not going to happen since I just started a new job and am very limited on my vacation, but I can dream!

Enjoy :D
