I spent the last week in Aruba with my family. It was such a needed vacation and it felt really good to just unplug and get away for 7 whole days. Ever notice how vacation as a grown-up is like 1 million times better than as a kid? It's because as a grown-up, I know how much it sucks to not be on vacation. And so for the last week, I didn't do a whole lot. I sat on the beach with my family with my toes in the sand. I woke up at the crack of dawn to sit under a chickee and sip on coffee + evaporated milk. I ate whatever I wanted and didn't feel badly about it. I have so many photos, so today I'm sharing a lot of them.
Four years ago, Shaun and I got married.
We had an amazing wedding weekend in Aruba, filled with lots of family and friends. We spent our days lounging, celebrating, drinking and jumping off a dock into the cool blue water. Four years has flown by in a flash and I can wait to see what the next 40 bring to us!
and 4 years later...
Happy Four Years, my love! Here's to 100 more.
Last week was spent lying on either a float in the ocean or a lounge chair under a chickee here:
It was our annual trip to Aruba, where Shaun and I have a time share. My whole family went on the trip and it was a wonderful, relaxing week in paradise.
I drank coffee with evaporated milk. A rare, annual indulgence that I could never justify in real life.
We celebrated our 4th wedding anniversary a few days early (our actual anniversary is tomorrow). Here's a shot of us last year, on our 3rd anniversary:
I read Skinnydipping by Bethenny Frankel. Praise the lord for beach reads.
And started Gone Girl (which I keep calling Girl Gone). Anyone else reading this one?
And most importantly, I rocked some Essie Mesmerize. And yes...that's my super pasty white leg in there, of which Shaun asked me if I was holding a white eggplant in this photo. #fail.
So that's why I abandoned you for over a week. I'm sorry! I just couldn't get it up to blog last week. A true vacation was so desperately needed. I'm back and ready to get down to business :) I hope you all had a seriously wonderful Independence Day!
