Sail & SALE!

I’m baaaa-aaacckkk!!!! I just spent a wonderful/restful/computer free week sailing through the Bahamas! It was just me and the hubs, and we had the time of our lives! Such a fun week!

Well…it was me, the hubs, and Marge!


When we were at Atlantis, we swam with a few friends! I was crazy nervous, but I honestly enjoyed every second of our visit with the dolphins! After dancing and a few dolphin kisses, (yes…I went there! Trust me, I am shocked myself!) we actually got to dive with our new friends!

Now, back to reality! I promise to respond to emails and questions within the week! I haven’t forgotten about my bloggy friends! :)
