around here: jamaica style


My love and I got to spend a week together in Jamaica last week.  It was an amazing time.  I missed my children beyond belief, I mean seriously, longing for their footsteps early in the morning.  Being away really puts things into perspective about what truly matters in life.  And to me, those little feet are what I live for.  But my husband and I had not been away for five years, since we went to Hawaii when I was seven months with child with our first.

This trip was much better.  Gorgeous sunsets and sea and rocks and flowers and just to be still.  We could not separate our honey-moon-time from the heart-wrenching people and culture of Jamaica.  And I know that Jamaica will be in my heart for years to come.  It was a trip of a lifetime which I am so thankful for — getting to spend time, without distraction, with my husband and for my marriage.
