Do you get the blues when vacation is over? I returned to work on Monday, and that also meant the return of my headaches. Coincidence? I think not! I love my job, I really do, but I love vacation more!
Our trip to Jamaica was everything I could have dreamed of and more. The weather was good, the food was great, the staff was attentive and my time with Aaron was perfect. Our already strong bond was strengthened even more. It’s amazing what time away can do for your soul and your marriage!!
I don’t think I could ever stay in another resort brand again. Secrets St. James in Montego Bay was truly amazing. We had the greatest view from our amazing suite.
Even before landing, you could see how clear blue the ocean was
We were greeted by staff when we arrived to the resort and taken to our suite. I wish I had taken actual pics, because it was gorgeous. I loved the soaking tub and the bed was so comfortable!
We had a nice little surprise waiting for us when we entered the room. Aaron had told them that we were celebrating our honeymoon, which we were…a year and a half after we wed!
We were also gifted with a romantic in suite breakfast, which was totally yummy!
We woke early every morning, usually by 5:30-6am. We took a walk every morning to watch the sunrise and then headed to the coffee shop. This peacock was there to greet us every morning. We were constantly trying to get good pictures of her!
We lazily laid by the ocean every day and floated around all afternoon. I enjoyed my daily mimosas.
We would check out the pool scene in the afternoon. The pool bar bartenders were really funny and livened up the day. This view from what we called the quiet pool was spectacular!
The food was incredible. I thought my favorite was the French restaurant, until I tried the Italian food. Crazy, right? Those Jamaicans can surely cook a mean steak, too! Seriously perfect! We enjoyed our dinners every night and dressing up.
It was truly a magical vacation and I’m already looking forward to our next trip away! For now, the memories we made and the pictures we took will be at the forefront of my mind.
