It Really is that Beautiful

Earlier this month we went on vacation to the Virgin Islands. (Both the British and US.) You know all of those pictures of the pristine white beaches and amazing blue and green water? It's even more amazing in person.

We were so blessed. It was one of those vacations that we kept pinching ourselves and asking "Are we really here?" There were times that I almost didn't feel like it was real. Although, I have the tan to prove that I was. (Yes, we used our sunscreen and none of us got a sunburn!)

Before we left my husband told the kids "that they would have to step out of their box and try new things." I took it to heart as well. I think that I may have stepped out of my box more than anyone.  I'm super proud of myself because there were lots of times that I did things that I never thought I'd do and was actually mentally prepared to say no to. But I said yes and it rocked.

And yes, I'll tell you more stories. They're too good not to tell.

I can't wait to hear about those things you did!
I'm so glad you had the opportunity to go. It looks so beautiful and enjoyed your photos on Facebook while you were there.

It looks so beautiful! I also need to get out of my box. There are days I wonder how I got into the box. Go you!
