It’s crazy that just a week ago tonight, we were enjoying our first night on our cruise. Tonight, we are snuggled together, home safe.
The trip was wonderful. Joe’s parents accompanied us and we took the Norwegian Epic for a week visiting Cozumel, Grand Cayman, Jamaica and their private island in the Bahamas. We met wonderful people from all over the world, we tried new things in places that we have never visited and we took time to relax and enjoyed the open water on our balcony.
Jacob loved every moment. He swam in the hot tub, played in the splash pad and let the waves crash over him in the ocean. He made friends with all the staff, giving big hugs before we left. Joe & I enjoyed a date night and spent a few hours alone while we enjoyed dinner and (re)explored the ship. We made so many incredible memories.
I won’t pretend that the week was perfect but it was for us. We adjusted our vacation to ensure none of us were uncomfortable. I took it easy & napped with Jacob almost every day, I have pain in my chest still but hopefully that will eventually go away and I didn’t swim quite as much as I may have before because of the wound in my chest. But that doesn’t mean that this trip wasn’t amazing – because it was.
Tonight, we are home safe and were able to relax today and settle back in. Though we have lots to do before heading back to work & school, we will enjoy the last few moments of vacation before heading back into our routines again.
Hopefully you have all had a wonderful & fun week and you are all able to enjoy this weekend!! Keep spreading the love my friends.
