My story with Manitou Beach is just beginning! It was truly love at first sight when I discovered the town for the first time. A scenario I like to call a “happy accident”, but has God’s hand all over it! The town has quickly become one of my favorite escapes and I couldn’t wait to share it with you. I took a random day off from work during the July 4th weekend and had a blast shopping and exploring.Continue reading
While it may appear to be a post about a girl’s day trip to Saint Joseph, Michigan and it totally is! I’m also sharing a piece of my heart about disappointment, plot twists and listening to what God has planned rather than your plans this week.
One of my biggest packing tips might seem a little odd for sailing off in the Caribbean… Bring a hoodie! Not for island adventures of course but for the Dive In Movies late at night on deck! Sharing all about the Dive In process and my traditions for those nights.
Panama Canal is officially the southern most point that I have sailed to, and let me tell you that day was a journey on it’s own. This destination was the reason why I went on my specific cruise this year and I now have the honor of saying that I’ve done it twice. All the way through, turned around and came back again.
I can’t tell you how many compliments I got on this banana leaf pink swimsuit last month. It doesn’t help that I wore my palm leaf kimono over it and showed up on deck commanding attention the second I stepped out of the elevator. The suit quickly became one of my favorites and I couldn’t wait to share it with you.
I was pleased as punch the moment that I stepped ashore in Aruba. It’s been one of my favorites from the beginning and I couldn’t wait to explore it further. I did something a bit out of the norm and booked a tour through Carnival that gave a tour of the island. Normally, because I am so comfortable on that island I would have just hired a local and saved quite a bit of money. The tour did not disappoint and gave me an insight to the island that I didn’t quite see before.
Miss Me? I’ve been a bit busy sailing the Caribbean sea these last couple of weeks. I managed to work my fins off right until it was time to sail out, so it was a much needed break. Where have I been? Well, this year’s vacation was a 14 day cruise and a partial Panama transit!
Let’s throw it back to the beginning of this year when I went on an amazing tropical vacation. The last port of call, Amber Cove was definitely one of my favorites, a laid back pool party in the heart of the Caribbean.
