Island Dreaming...

Today seemed like a great day to do a little island dreaming!

Umbrella at the Palms Turks and Caicos
Several years ago, my husband and I took our first vacation without the kids.

Tropical flowers on the grounds of the Palms Turks and Caicos
Although it was hard leaving them for the first time
(I cried on the plane as we took off),
once we arrived on the island of Turks and Caicos
I was feeling much better!

  2. I've never been on vacation without the kids, except overnight to Atlantic City. I was going crazy without them for one night, I could imagine for a week! We are heading off to Punta Cana Hard Rock Cafe this Sunday for vacation with the family and 9 other families, all friends! Can't wait to get out of this cold, snowy terrible weather! Stay warm! Have a great week!
