Vacation, I love you

I'm back from vacation and battling the whirlwind of a classically crazy workweek... sigh. At least I have my tan to remind me what I was doing this time last week, right?!

The major vacation takeaway (besides the fact that duh, we need to go on vacation more often) was this: we have a water baby! I'm so happy that my girl seems like splashing around the water as much as her mom does. We had a tented pool float, aka the best $30 I've ever spent, and it was perfect for her. We could actually use it in the ocean, too, as calm as the water was there. And blue! That blue... (cue another sigh).

We stayed at the Beachcomber condos in Grand Cayman, and I can't say enough about the property. Perfect location, great amenities, completely relaxed and easy. If you're looking for a tropical condo vacation instead of a hotel (especially if you have a little one in tow), the Beachcomber is definitely worth looking into! This vacation wasn't our usual speed at all. We tend to be active vacationers, checking things out and seeing sights. This time we really just wanted to relax, enjoy, and do absolutely nothing, and we nailed it.

I have well over 100 vacation photos - Hazel swimming in each of her little suits, dozens of shots of each of us holding her on different days, various sunsets and ocean shots, etc. Excessive photo-taking, as can be expected with a six-month-old on her first beach trip. (And oh yeah: we celebrated our five-year anniversary down there. Yay us!) Here are just a few of my favorite shots:





  1. So much fun, Maggie! I loved following the pictures on Instagram. The trip looks so relaxing and just wonderful, and Hazel is so so so cute.

  2. ohhhhh my goodness. i can't get enough of hazel! what an amazing vacation. super jealous!!

  3. Pineapple babies are my new favorite thing.

  4. I can't get enough of the photo of Hazel sitting soooooo proudly and carefully in her float! Girlfriend knows she's queen of the pool.

  5. Awesome! She looks like such a sweet happy baby! What a fun trip. I'm so glad she did so well and had so much fun. Love the photos!

  6. SUCH awesome photos!! The one with the pineapple is most certainly my favorite :) :)

  7. Basically, you're the cutest vacationing family ever!

    Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR. EMU and I emailed him and he replied to me so kindly and helped me get back my lovely relationship that was already gone for two months.

  9. I've seen the great importance of natural herbs and the wonderful work they have done in people's lives. I wonder why people still spend their money on surgery, injections and drugs each time they are sick. Natural herbs can cure all kinds of illness including Herpes, Diabetics, Asthma, Cancer, Hepatitis, etc. I've seen it with my own eyes. I was cured of Hepatitis B and my Sister and her Husband were cured of herpes by chief dr lucky who uses natural herbs to cure different kinds of illness. Even chief dr luck proved to the whole world that natural herbs can cure all diseases and he cured countless people using natural herbs. I know it is hard to believe but am a living testimony. There is no harm in trying herbs. Contact  on WhatsApp  +2348132777335 or email


C'mon, make my day...
