Today I am in sunny St. Thomas in the USVI! The hubby and I are on a week long Caribbean cruise to celebrate our fifteenth anniversary. As it so happens, today is the day. Fifteen years ago I walked down the aisle and married my very best friend. Since then, we've been through a lot: good times, bad times, difficult times, joyful times...but through it all, our relationship has strengthened and grown. My author bio says I'm married to my real life hero, and it couldn't be more true. Even with those times that aren't so easy in life, I really do feel like I've found my happily ever after.
Here in St. Thomas, I'm not sure what we'll be up to. More than likely we'll do some shopping. When we travel we buy a Christmas ornament from each place we visit and then write the date on the back. Each year when we decorate the tree, it's like a little walk down memory lane. So, an ornament will definitely be on the list. Maybe some jewelry...nothing fancy or expensive, just something simple. I could use a new anklet.
Perhaps we'll do an excursion and snorkel over on St. John, or take a guided tour of the island, or there's even an option to swim with the dolphins. I guess we'll decide what we're in the mood to do, and then do it. Perhaps we'll just explore on our own.
I'm hoping tonight is one of the 'fancy' nights for dinner on board. We're supposed to have two over the course of the week. My hubby doesn't like dressing up, (He's more of a cut off sleeves and shorts kind of guy.) but I can't wait to get dressed up. I got a beautiful new dress. One of those that makes you feel elegant as soon as you put it on. When we booked the cruise, we did list our anniversary for today, so maybe there will be a little something special for us even if it's not a 'fancy' night.
I'm sure I'll have lots to share when I return: stories and pictures gallore!
Until next time,
