Well, y’all… It’s been less than 12 hours, and I’m already missing what my big brother refers to as the cool island breeze of the US Virgin Islands. My cruise around the Eastern Caribbean was amazing. Our 7-day vaca took us from Cape Canaveral to CocoCay, Bahamas to St. Thomas to St. Maartin then back to sunny FL. My BFF, S, was a last minute substitute for my mother, who unfortunately couldn’t make it due to a scheduling conflict, and I don’t think you could’ve given me two better partners in crime (PIC#1-Tonx McAwesome aka Brother Bear//PIC#2- Sarah aka SayMac aka S).
This one-week prelude to my birthday weekend (25 on Friday, heyo!) is one for the history books. I hope you enjoy my day-to-day breakdown.

As for next weekend? Well, I’m turning 25 on Friday! Nuts! I sometimes still think I’m 22, which is either a sign of my hesitation to age or early dementia. Anyways, I’ll be sure to keep y’all posted. Have a fabulous week, lovebugs!
