So I’ll start off by telling you, that as you’re reading this, I’ll be sailing off in the Caribbean. Yes, I’m excited. It’s amazing. I know. No seriously, the best way to enter the New Year, right? I didn’t even celebrate New Years eve. I offered to baby sit my niece (best aunt ever, I know) instead, because I figured I would be heading off to celebrate on the ocean with some of my favorite ladies (and a Marcus too) and that would definitely be a big enough party 🙂 If you want to follow along on the ocean adventure, you can always follow along on the ohdeardrea instagram 🙂
So a week before I re-turned in my manuscript, I decided to take a much needed family day. We headed downtown to the market, ate popsicles, had coconuts, sat by the water, snapped photos—- you know, the good stuff. Later met up with my brother and his family, ate tacos, and shared a pitcher of margaritas, where I sadly got day drunk off of one drink. I pretty much stopped drinking this year, so I just can’t hang anymore. One drink and I’m done. Anyway, the weather was beautiful and it was just a wonderful day to do nothing with the people I love most.
Theres this thing that my family does now– where it’s a constant joke about starting a blog about my blog— and all pictures of me taking pictures of things. Pictures of Drea’s pictures– or something. So here’s that.
M and I are bumming Alex couldn’t join us for the trip. Especially since we haven’t seen much of him this season— but I know he’ll be enjoying his quiet time while we’re away. I expect a very well rested husband and an extra beautiful garden when we get back. (We love you babe! More days like this soon!)
We’ll be back in the country next week— but no worries, I have lots of posts lined up for this week 🙂 &don’t forget to follow along on instagram 🙂 Bon Voyage!
