{ Stowe, VT ~ Road Trip Stop #1 }

I know I have totally neglected this blog for the last 7 months, but I'm back! To be honest, I got into a funk about the whole blogging thing and it wasn't enjoyable to me anymore so I took some time off, although I never intended for it to be this long! I was still reading and enjoying all of my favorite (yep, all 500 of them) blogs but I didn't want to blog myself. I'm hoping to get back to posting on a regular basis and hope that I still have some friends and followers who even want to read what I have to say!

In early October we went on a New England road trip, it was a beautiful 12 days spent together exploring parts of our beautiful country that neither of us had been to before. We drove to New York and took the ferry to Vermont and then made our way to our first stop, Stowe. This was Jim's favorite stop on our trip, he just fell in love with the mountains of Vermont.

{ Easter & Pottery Barn Mirror }

I wanted to get pictures of my Easter decor and crafts this past weekend but have been sick with bronchitis and pneumonia for the last 8 days! I'm still pretty down and out but before Easter was over I wanted to at least put a picture of my mantel on the blog. This is also the first time you'll be seeing our new amazing Pottery Barn Eagan Multipanel Mirror, I lusted over this piece for months and months before I decided to bite the bullet and pay the outrageous price that PB was asking, and I tell you what, I don't regret it one bit, this is an amazing addition to our home.

{ Lil' Wayne/Nicki Minaj Concert }

Last Saturday we were able to enjoy the Lil' Wayne & Nicki Minaj concert from a suite, we had such a good time. I have to laugh when I look at these pictures, it looks like we had the entire suite to ourselves (us, my bro and sis) but that wasn't the case, there was 22 of us total.

We ended the night at Boston's, a gourmet pizza place/bar. Cheers!

{ Vacation: Cruise }

We had the best time on our vacation, I would have loved for it to never end! We had such great weather the entire time and made lots of memories with our friends and family that we were able to vacation with this time around. Our first stop was in Clearwater, FL to visit friends of ours that moved down there about 6 months ago, they have such a beautiful new home and tried to convince us to move down there with them, it almost worked!

After spending a day with them we headed to Miami to board our cruise, we went on the Carnival Liberty, and visited St. Thomas, San Juan and Grand Turk. We were supposed to also visit Half Moon Cay, Bahamas but due to an unforeseen and unfortunate medical occurrence on the first day we had to turn back around to Miami and that caused us to miss the first port, such a bummer for us, but rumors were that someone lost their life so it's hard to be upset by something like that.

San Juan, Puerto Rico. We spent the day walking around the beautiful city.

St. Thomas, we visited Magens Bay beach and walked around town, it was gorgeous! Grand Turk was AMAZING!! The water was stunning and the locals were so friendly. Our home for 7 amazing days

I spent a lot of time our all balcony reading my Nook and listening the the sounds of the ocean, so peaceful.

We sure weren't ready to leave the life of luxury to return to reality, but like all good vacations they have to come to an end ... until the start of the next one!
