It's been a while since I posted (on the blog, on my Instagram I'm pretty consistent...). Last time I posted I thought I was just getting over the flu but it ended up sticking around for a while longer and taking down every member from my Dutch family that was staying with us at the time. Even Matt, the One With the Strong Immune System, was out for about 36 hours. Now that everyone is better we can look back and laugh at how pathetic we were as an entire household for that week...
And then, just as I finally felt a little more back in the game, we flew down for a vacation to Jamaica. Clearly when we booked the trip, I had no idea I would be signing a new lease on a new space in January (and opening it Feb 26th... come on out 7-10 pm. if you are in the area!)... And I did feel super guilty about leaving... for about 17 hours and then I got over it and decided to just have fun.

And fun it was.

There was a group of 6 of us that went together and as much as I love little getaways with Matt, I think all inclusives are way better with a group. It's kinda hard to put into words exactly how amazing this getaway was... Jamaica is a beautiful country, the weather is just the right temperature to hang outside all day without feeling like you might actually hate the sun and the people are so kind and welcoming. The resort was both relaxing and high energy. Not sure that makes sense... But I have never danced so much in a week and I have never written so few to-do lists. As a chronic list maker, this was a beautiful thing.
It also helped that my friends are pretty awesome. And by pretty awesome I mean, really awesome. When you are with fun people, you can make any time a good time. Quote that, reference me...

I left Jamaica with a tan that's already fading and a sand burn on my foot from a spectacular volleyball dive I made.
In return I left a few things in Jamaica. I gave my baseball cap to one of our new friends down there because apparently Blue Jays hats are a hot commodity... who knew? I also lost a favourite bracelet when I did a little cliff jumping (Me? Heights? What!). And I left my favourite bathing suit drying on the inside door handle of the bathroom! I loved my Triangl top mix and matched with my super favourite high-waisted Victoria's Secret bottoms (size up, it's a really sturdy material)...:( I guess I either need to re-order the bathing suit or... just go back to Jamaica.

*no doubt I missed spectacularly actually. My volleyball skills are all just good intentions.

I'd love to know where you stayed in Jamaica. It looks beautiful! My husband and I are planning a trip and need recommendations.

The cliff jumping! Eek! Me next, but don't push...I've gotta talk myself into it first! :o)

I'm pretty sure all my sports skills are just good intentions.

Gina- It was the Grand Palladium. The link is in the post where I say we went away. It was not perfect (and I don't expect that) but it was the best all inclusive I have ever had.
