It's been a while. A LONG while. Life has happened (literally! I have a 1, soon-to-be-2 year old son) and well, to be honest, it hasn't been easy trying to balance life as a mom and middle school special education teacher. Though I absolutely LOVE the Caribbean, and I always find the time to make it there (I can never stay away too long). No matter my financial situation, I will ALWAYS find a way to get to paradise; my safe haven, security blanket, place of happiness and reflection. I don't know about you, but I NEED the sun, sand and waves. I NEED to see the vibrant greens of the swaying palm trees and crystal clear turquoise waters. It just does something to my soul. It's as much a part of me as the Bronx is. Yes, I born and raised in the Bronx but I consider myself an "honorary West Indian" (via my husband, who comes from St. Lucia).
I love island life, period. Not just what a resort can offer because most times I prefer local living. Bob Marley said it best, "We'll be together with a roof right over our heads, we'll share the shelter of my single bed". YES! Less is always more in my book.
