I am beyond excited right now!!!
After many months of planning (read: procrastinating), Bob and I have booked a trip in early September to St. Lucia. Yeeeeah!
Confession time: As an adult, I’ve never been on a real vacation before. Let me explain. I’ve been to Puerto Rico and Florida a few times as a kid, when my parents used to send me to stay with family in the summer. But as an adult? I’ve stood at Atlantic City and Wildwood (in New Jersey, for those that don’t know). That’s it. And if you’ve ever been, you’d know these don’t count as “real” vacations. I’d call them day trips, if anything.
I won’t bore you with the details of why I haven’t traveled much before (tight budgets, family issues, me feeling guilty for taking days off from work, etc.), but I’m traveling now and that’s all that matters.
Fun in the sun is just what this beach lovin’ gal needs. Here’s to the first stamp on my passport!
p.s. I’ve got my eye on Europe for next year…
