Hello all my amazing followers, family and friends. I am so beyond sorry for my HUGE gap between posts and for not posting about my summer road trip with Kris. I honestly have struggled putting words to paper. I've attempted multiple times and it's just been so difficult. Finding the right words, finding the initiative … Continue reading Update on Life Post Hurricanes
It took 3 hours of hard labor and some neighborly support to finally clear our drive. However, it didn’t really matter. The island was still under a 24 hour curfew, for good reason, of course. We were just annihilated by Hurricane Irma about 15 hours prior, so the day afterwards wasn’t much fun. We were … Continue reading One Swirl After Another
Words. Words. Words. I swear I have them, but placing them onto paper isn't coming easy. This adventure I'm currently in was DEFIANTLY not a mapped out plan.

This wasn't just a normal family … Continue reading When Family Comes to the Island(s)

Since then, I’ve been two more times and it’s ONLY the beginning of March. Three passport stamps in 3 months. Pretty sure that’s a new record … Continue reading Island Hopping in 2017
One of the benefits of living on St. Thomas in the Caribbean is the number of countries surrounding it. In fact, one country is only a 30-40 minute boat ride depending on the weather and the water conditions. I'm speaking of the British Virgin Islands, commonly known as the BVIs. For me, this was always … Continue reading New Year, New Stamp
Whirlwind. Unimaginable. Incredible. These three words don't even come close to describing my weekend adventures in Puerto Rico filming an episode of Xtreme Waterparks for the Travel Channel. Yes, you read that right! I was blessed with the opportunities to fly, with two friends (Blakely and Michelle), to be filmed on natural rock slides in … Continue reading Xtreme Trip of a LIFETIME
