Last week we went away for a weekend.We left our computers and work at home and went away together. Somehow, that three days was more relaxing than our last week-long vacation where were were answering emails and phone calls and (basically) still working while we were there. It reminded me how important it is for us to get away from it all.
At BlogHer, I attended a lovely event hosted by Trumpting Media in New York City that had Beaches Resorts as one of the sponsors. And as I chatted with friends about our trip to Beaches Negril… I was immediately dreaming about going back and unwinding for a few days.
Doesn’t that look heavenly?
I could so go for some relaxing on a beach right now. Or some eating in yummy restaurants every day. Or some swimming with dolphins. Or getting tucked in my Elmo. We cannot recommend Beaches Resorts highly enough!
Next time we want to head to Beaches Turks and Caicos. We fell in love with snorkeling in Negril and we’ve heard that Turks and Caicos has some of the best snorkeling in the world! My newly certified scuba diver husband found out that Beaches Turks & Caicos vacation puts you at the epicenter of a collection of world-famous dive sites that are ranked among the top two in the world by Scuba Dive magazine. Now he is DYING to go there!
Part of me wants to go back just with my husband, for a romantic getaway. But we had so SO much fun with our kids that I can hardly imagine going back without them! It was amazing to just relax and unwind with our kids. The kids kept saying how much fun we were being – its incredible how freeing it is to not have to worry about those details that we parents constantly have on our minds. We were able to just enjoy our kids and enjoy being together as a family.
disclosure: i attended this event and received a gift bag as a thank you. we visited beaches negril as part of a press trip and had a portion of our expenses covered.
