You may or may not have noticed that I disappeared. That is because I have been in the Black Hole of Honeymoon Planning.
As the name suggests, the Black Hole of Honeymoon Planning is a dark and treacherous place. There were points over the past week when I couldn’t remember my name or why I was researching that resort in Djibouti. Also, I literally got a burn on my thighs from my laptop. (Note to self: Change into pants before entering Black Holes.)
But now, dear friends, I can happily say The Scientist and I have chosen a country AND booked our suites! We’re going to…
ST. LUCIA!!!!! (cheering and applause)
We’ll be there for the last 8 days in December and I couldn’t possibly be more excited about it.
- December 22: Fly to Miami — Spend one night somewhere.
- December 23: Fly to St. Lucia — Spend first 3 nights at the Villa Beach Cottages in a 1-bedroom suite that opens up onto a perfectly white beach. We chose this so we could experience the beaches, nightlife, and amazing restaurants on the northern part of the island.
- December 26: Check into the Ladera Resort and spend the next 5 nights in a 3-wall, open-air suite overlooking the ocean and mountains. And yes, it has a private plunge pool. Swoon! Spas, hot springs, volcano tours, and private, secluded, black-sand beaches are on the agenda.
- December 31: Check out and cry all the way to the airport.
Now that we have the most important parts planned out, I think I can get back to
blogging reality. But first I need a manicure. And burn cream. And a Pacemaker.
