Honeymoon Hotspot: St. Lucia

via

This one is a no-brainer for me and I’m definitely biased, as this was the hotspot where the Mr. and I spent our honeymoon last September! A man staying in the villa next to ours said it best between puffs on his cigar when he said, “this place is {insert colorful swear word} ecstasy!” Yes, that’s the edited version. And crazy as that man was, he was RIGHT!

Here’s an ariel shot of the grounds- the resort is nestled in between the Pitons {these mountains were formed by a volcano} and was once a sugar plantation.

The rooms were heavenly- all white with dark wood floors and dark wood accents. Each villa has it’s own soaking pool, and ours had a view of the beach like his one…! Perfect for watching the sunset while taking a dip!!

And I can’t fail to mention that the spa is a series of tree houses in the rainforest? My mind is STILL blown.

We thought that St. Lucia was a perfect spot to honeymoon with a balance of our secluded, romantic resort and countless options for exploring in surrounding towns. We toured Soufriere and took a volcanic mud bath, rinsed off in a nearby waterfall and explored the botanical gardens. AH what I’d give to go back!!!;)

The power of choosing

Not only do we love the trend of bridesmaids all wearing different {yet still coordinating} dress styles, but we’re huge fans of letting the ladies choose their own shoes. If they act wisely, giving the gals the power to choose their own shoes can keep their feet in prime condition for celebrating, dancing and not to mention… pampering the bride!!! This line up of soft pink & nude heels is such a fun wedding day photo!

Marathon musings

Today is Boston’s infamous Marathon Monday. I can’t help but to have a heavy heart with memories of last year’s marathon and the way it shaped our city. Banding together, there is an air of excitement & empowerment for the thousands that have come to run and support their loved ones. Seeing the runners board busses and head to the starting line at the Common this morning, brought tears to my eyes with the thought of how challenging it’s been to reconcile the evil that affected us so profoundly- and with that, the hard work of many to sort through grief, to forgive, to recover, to continue training despite the memories and to persevere. Yep, we’re feeling incredibly inspired by our city today and we have every reason to be-BOSTON STRONG!
