This time last week we were exploring the island of Freeport in the Bahamas. Such a drastic contrast to the exhilaration of shoveling hundreds of feet of snow.
In July, my brother called me to ask if we wanted to go on a cruise with them. I laughed. "We can't afford to go on a cruise!" But, I entertained the idea, secretly hoping by some miracle it would be possible. And what do you know? We were able to find a five day cruise to the Bahamas for only $189 each. The airfare followed suit at $130 each. The transportation fell in line and before I knew it, we were going on a cruise!
It was such a treat for Matt and I to get away together. As many of you with young children know, an uninterrupted conversation can do wonders for a marriage. Uninterrupted sleep can do wonders for the individual. And an entire meal enjoyed without a spill or scream? That was icing on the cake.
I love my children dearly. But I love my husband more. And a few days away was just what we needed to feel refreshed and recharged. I'm so grateful for this trip - and humbled because I know its nearly impossible for people at our stage of life to take adventures like this.
So, without further ado, here is a link to view our pictures. And I'll post just one or two here to give you a taste of the album to see if its worth perusing.
Oh and if you would like to consider a cruise vacation...here's the site we used to get a cheap vacation. My parents have used it 8 or more times so they come highly recommended.
