It’s been SUCH an adjustment coming back North Carolina after a wonderful vacation in St. John with Richard and my family. When your daily itinerary consists of “what beach should we go to today?” and your only worry is “whose turn is it to use the snorkel gear?” — that’s how you know that it’s a good vacation.

Here’s a short photo recap of the trip, with the full album being visible on my personal Facebook page…

Yeah, I could live here.

Richard and I MAY have enjoyed this Caribbean getaway so much that we booked ourselves a short, 4-night cruise to Cozumel for Labor Day weekend! We sail out of Fort Lauderdale, the same port as our honeymoon in January 2015. Can’t WAIT!

We’re headed to D.C. on Thursday evening to celebrate the 4th with Patrick — I’ll be sure to document all of the delicious food and drink, as well as the fireworks show (my expectations are high!)

Have a safe and tasty holiday weekend!
