{ For the Love of....B's }

Happy Friday everyone! This week went by fast and I'm excited to have some free time this weekend to spend cleaning, crafting, and day dreaming. There is a winter storm advisory for Saturday which makes all of the above much more likely to happen ;) Here are my loves for your viewing and mouth watering pleasure!

{ For the Love of....Reflection }

{Strolling in Tortola}

Ahhh....7 long days spent in the mountains, beaches, & Caribbean Islands does the mind and body good! I'm very much still in relax mode and hope it lingers for the remainder of the week! Looking through my photos has been almost as good as actually being there....well almost :)I can't think of a better feeling than coming back after a vacation with the feeling of gratitude, renewed energy, and a restful spirit. It is definitely in my plans to experience more travel this year. Here are some of my favorite shots from my travels.

{ For the Love of ...Travel }

I'm packing up my bag as I sit at my desk, double checking to make sure that my passport is in my bag. Tonight I head out with a small close group of family & friend to embark on a most exciting journey to the islands of the Caribbean! I've been looking forward to this trip for months now and I can't believe the day has finally arrived!! I'm going to have to pinch myself when I land in Miami this afternoon. This is a South Park character of me on vacation. Check out how to make your own here. Have fun and I'll see you back in one week with photos and stories from my travels ;)
