Happy happy Friday!! : ) I am off all day today and so far I have enjoyed sleeping in, watching tv, and blogging! : ) What are y'all doing today??
So, let me tell y'all a little story about our honeymoon. I haven't really talked about it yet on here or posted any pictures, but I have some important (aka exciting) news to share today!!
We went on our honeymoon on October 3 last year. We were *supposed* to go to Sandals Negril in Jamaica. When we arrived in Jamaica and went to the Sandals desk, we were informed that a tropical storm had hit Negril and the resort was flooded/damaged. They told us that we would be going to another Sandals in Ocho Rios, Jamaica. Now I know that this is not really horrible news, but I almost burst into tears. For one, we had spent FOREVER picking the perfect Sandals and we loved Negril. Also, I am a big baby and I was freaking out that my parents wouldn't even know exactly where we were anymore.
Needless to say, I got over that real quick. We were still in Jamaica going to a fabulous resort for our honeymoon! We were thrilled...a beach is a beach and all inclusive is all inclusive! : ) When we arrived at the resort to check in, the manager asked to speak with us. She informed us that because of the issue and their inability to tell us before we arrived, we would be getting a voucher for another vacation! Hello!!! A free vacation!!! Does it get any better than that?? Thank you, Sandals!!
We recently sent in our voucher request and I just got the confirmation email today!! My adorable hubby and I will be going on our second honeymoon for our 1st wedding anniversary! HOORAYYYY!! We are going to Negril. We spent a lot of time trying to decide where to go and almost picked St. Lucia, but I just feel like we were *supposed* to go to Negril, so we should go there. It is stunning (in the pictures I've seen). It is also rated the best beach in the Caribbean. We are literally SO SO excited and grateful that we will be able to make this trip. Thank you, Jesus, for Your sweet blessings!!
Here are some pictures of Negril, all from the Sandals website:
The room we will be staying in is the beach front swim-up suite...aka amazing and fabulous.
Ahhhhh, I can't wait...only 6 more months!! : )
Thanks for sharing in our excitement. I love you, blog friends!
I need one more favor. A couple that we know is in the process of adopting a baby boy from Ethiopia. They just received news that Ethiopia is considering decreasing adoptions by 90%. This will definitely delay their baby boy coming home...and stop many other couples from being able to adopt. A petition has been started. If you feel so inclined, I'd love for you to click here and sign the petition. If you don't want to sign, please offer my friends and ALL the orphans in Ethiopia up to the Lord for prayer. Thank y'all so much!
