can we talk vacation?
i am going away. in 2 ½ days! and i can hardly wait. all the arrangements are booked, i’ve added a few things to my wardrobe and collection of bags, and i’m smack in the middle of packing with my crazy/typed/revised packing list.
i. cannot. wait.
the best part is obviously every blissful moment you’re there. but i have to enjoy the anticipation, too… because on that first-day-after-vacation, i tend to settle into a bit of misery.
so in preparation, of sorts… can we talk other vacations? EP and i went to st. john in november for four blissful days. but i wasn’t blogging at the time, so i never got to share, and look back, and pick out favorite photos to reminisce over.
this time we’ll be relaxing + sleeping in, drinking margaritas (instead of rum… spoiler alert) + sunbathing for seven days! I can’t even imagine how delightful it could be.
but I digress. on to some of my favorite photos from st. john (just 6 months behind).
it was beautiful on the cove.
sunset was incredible every day… and even though we didn’t exactly wake up early, the morning was beautiful, too. the rain, which happened almost every day, did not matter at all. usually it lasted 20 minutes. we always found ways to occupy the time.
there were teeny lizards all around, and then a few bigger guys (he’s by the pink flowers in the next photo). EP was into getting photos. i was content to squeal, hide behind him, and photograph his photo-taking dance.
well worth it for this as a backdrop to our bagel sandwiches for breakfast:
i do not think i am photogenic. that’s where the beauty of digital cameras and taking one million photos comes in handy. eventually, i don’t hate one. :p
since i wasn’t blogging, or really thinking about it, i took perhaps 5 food photos the entire time. this is one of my favorite shots, even though they were our least favorite drinks.
voodoo juice, however, was our favorite drink. it came in bucket size only, but it was sugary, and amazing, and we were sharing.
i could get used to vacation every six months… i know that isn’t very reasonable, but i’m definitely going to enjoy it while i can. :-)
