Eleven Years :: Mallorca, Spain

Last Friday, April 22nd, was our ELEVEN year wedding anniversary. Whoa!

Normally, I spend a lot of time writing up a special blog post just for that day, but this year, we were on a flight to SPAIN! So the post is happening now :)

We have been staying in Mallorca, Spain for the past week and it has been an absolute dream.  Left the kiddos behind with their wonderful grandmothers and have been living with the freedom to do whatever we want, whenever we want for seven whole days!!!  We have been staying at an adults only resort called Cap Rocat which has just blown me away the entire time with everything from the service, cleanliness, food, staff, experiences, spa, etc…. I give it nothing but five stars! There are only thirty rooms on property so at any time of full capacity, there are only sixty guests.  It used to be a fortress for the military to run drills and stuff, but was abandoned by the government many years ago.  A local native ended up buying the property for next to nothing about twelve years ago and transformed the place into a global destination that would please even the most discerning of patrons.

We rented a car for a few days and did some adventuring around the island.  Stopped in places like Valldemossa which is probably one of the most quaint little towns I have ever been to.  The village square is covered with small cafes and restaurants but if you go deeper, the tree lined, cobble stoned roads narrow into nondescript home after home with narrow alley ways and almost every wall is covered in pottery filled with beautiful plants and flowers budding everywhere!  In between alleys you might catch a small glimpse of the beautiful Spanish terrain in the distance- oh it was so dreamy.  Then we moved on to Deià that was equally as charming just more of a trek to get to- one way in and one way out.  The road is extremely narrow and parking is scarce, but wow, it is beautiful to take it all in.  Lemon trees in every eyesight.  We had lunch here, traditional paella along with what  is served at every Mallorcan restaurant- bread, some sort of tomato and garlic sauce, and PLENTY of olives.  After that we moved on to the port village of Sóller where we had some ice cream and people watched.  The water sparkled as people frolicked around the beach side.  For us Floridians, the weather has been pretty chilly, 60’s and 70’s, so not much bathing suit wearing for these two.




A couple days in, we decided to drive into the capital city, Palma, to tour the gothic Roman Catholic Cathedral.  It was breathtaking.  From every angle on the exterior to the intricate work of stained glass on the inside,  it was stunning and massive!  Once you step inside, you feel as if you are stepping back into a biblical time as you go from chapel to chapel dedicated to saint after saint…  Each displayed with a description of the what you were seeing along with the artist who contributed their work to the church.  It’s a must see if you are in  Palma.  





Husband & I love a boat day any chance we get, so of course we had to take out the Cap Rocat boat and cruise around the island to see all of the terrain from the water.  So many caves, mountains, beautiful homes, and turquoise blue water surrounds.  The captain took us back into some tucked away beaches and hidden gems- it was so fun to see where the locals go on their days off.

We head back to reality tomorrow (Which I’m ready for!  I miss my babies!) but I am going to miss the peaceful calm of this beautiful place we have had the pleasure of experiencing the last week.  Feeling refreshed and happy!  Special thanks to my hard working husband who makes all of these amazing experiences a reality for us.  I feel blessed every day to call you mine and I would never take this life you provide for me and our boys for granted.  I love you.  Happy anniversary.

Nueve Años












Well, it certainly isn’t Tulum, Mexico, our destination of choice for our anniversary this year that had to be cancelled :(, but we are certainly making the most of this gorgeous day that we share with Mother Earth!

Two nights ago, I was scrolling through social media before bed and was stopped in my tracks by my favorite farm that’s located about an hour outside of Tampa, Sweetfields Farm.  I saw that they were having a U Pick event in their sunflower fields from 10AM to 1PM for Earth Day, and I knew immediately that it was the perfect thing for us to do as a family to get us out of the house for a little bit.

It was magical.

 We got there 15 minutes before they opened so we were some of the first ones in.  They made sure that they limited the amount of people could come in and when we left the line was pretty long, so I’m glad we got there when we did.  You could spend as much time as you wanted, there was no rush, and everyone was allowed to pick 3 sunflowers each.  The boys absolutely loved it!

I’m so thankful we were able to do something different to celebrate our anniversary… I’m still not sure how Husband puts up with me year after year, but to say I’m the luckiest to have him would be an understatement.

I love you, Husband, and there is no one else I would rather be trapped inside (for our NINE year wedding anniversary) quarantining with than you. Xoxo.

Ocho Años :: Bermuda


























Hey hunny,

How on earth have you put up with me for eight whole years?  I don’t know what I did so good in life to deserve you, but dang… I’m so lucky.  You are so patient and kind to me (except when checking the credit card statements ;) LOL!) and you are always ready for any adventure I throw your way, like renting scooters in Bermuda where we had to ride on the opposite side of the road and where I eventually ate pavement and almost got run over. Yes, that happened.

You are so wonderful and I’m so proud to be your other half…  everyone in the world can see that you are, without a doubt, the better half!

Thank you for taking me to Bermuda!  We stayed at the lovely Rosewood which was the most gorgeous setting, set up cliff-like looking down at the most stunningly beautiful blue water.  We trekked around in a golf cart to the pools and beach where we enjoyed all the different food and drinks at our leisure. Friday night we had the most lovely dinner at the Chef’s table in the kitchen of the main dining room at the resort.  The wine pairings were perfection and the food was impeccable. On Saturday, I had the bright idea to rent scooters, which was actually very nice (until the mishap).  We got to pop in at all the different “secret” beaches and enjoyed some local flair with music and dancing.

It was a great weekend away together!  Looking forward to all the years to come!

I love you.
