Get Tired

Standard

I love resting on vacations, but resting means you miss out on excursions and seeing all the place has to offer. In the Bahamas we did a little of both! We enjoyed our beach days, but we also let ourselves get tired and saw the island we came to see! We started with an extra long trip that gave us all the things by Born Free Charters.

It had boat time and private island time.

The water was so beautiful and blue! So worth the two hour boat ride.

Later, we had snorkel time viewing a sunken ship!

We visited the Island of the Iguanas.

We ate lunch at a local spot with the best food!

We fed, learned and swam with nurse sharks…sorta!

Finally, and maybe the best part was feeding the pigs!

We were tired and burnt, but full of life knowing the pics and memories we are taking back to America. So thankful we got up from the lounge chairs and got tired!

Our hotel was incredible so when we were tired and burnt and hungry then we returned to paradise at Margaritaville Beach Resort in Bahamas!

Now we can rest on the way home!

Epic Incentive Trip

Standard

I love when businesses take care of their people. Aimbridge hosted their sales incentive trip this past week in the Bahamas. To say they spoiled us is an understatement. We stayed at the best hotel Margaritaville Beach Resort.

The staff welcomed us openly with incredible food, parties and drinks.

The pool and entire facility was clean and welcoming. My favorite part was the elevator that had a perfect view of the pool and ocean water. Every room had an ocean view!! It was the best!

Definitely consider this amazing property for family, couples, girlfriends if you travel to the beautiful island! It was hard to leave!

Take the Vacation and Take the Pictures

Standard

I am writing this from a front porch over looking the ocean. A home we visited 6 years ago, but never knew we would come back. We thought this year we would be in Mexico again, but Corona had different plans. We thought there would be no vacation, but thankfully we made the choice to come!

When given the choice…choose the vacation.

We had a season in our life where a vacation was a splurge and not in our budget. We almost divorced. For real. We beat ourselves down with work, life and our list of do-nots that we got to a point of “Why try?” So now we see the value of take time to make memories, enjoy life and appreciate each other…so much easier when you are out of the house and away from the things that keep you working.

I know we are blessed to be able to do this…trust me, we worshipped our provider of rich blessings with our online campus @ClifeChurch (go to clife.com if interested in plugging in with God online…such good people!)

But, make it happen if you are able. It will not all be perfect especially when kids are involved…but it will be worth it to hear the laughs, see the smiles, feel the hugs because you are relaxing and leaving the work behind.

God’s creation is best seen up close! These moments of calm give me time to see God’s vision, affirm His calling and read His Word in a new setting. Best tip I can give is take all the pictures…be in them even if you feel fat…you will want to remember this…forever.
