I'm participating in this year's A-Z challenge, and so will be posting daily about a subject focusing on a letter of the alphabet.

My husband and I are going on vacation to Antigua. We're excited, not only because we've never been there before, but also because we rarely take a break this time of year. We're looking forward to an entirely new experience. 

So, my mini-manifesto is simple this week:

To be in the moment.
To enjoy this precious time alone with my husband.
To embrace new adventures.
To simply relax.

We're going to wine and dine and lie by the pool and dig our toes in the sand and listen to the ocean and feel the sun on our faces. We're going to sleep late and take afternoon naps and run on the beach. And best of all, we're going to remember why it is that we still love each other so deeply after all these years.



  1. You have a blast, dear friend. You two deserve the fun and peace and enjoyment. Raise a glass of a tropical concoction to me. Stick those toes in the sand and wiggle away, girl.

  2. i love your sadie hawkins story!
    and those jewels are to die for! priceless!
    i envy you antigua! enjoy!

    happy m day!

  3. Lord that looks amazing. And it's a wonderful way to reconnect. Have a great trip!

    Happy A to Z blogging.
