Marvelous Monday: 05/05

by Meg on May 5, 2014

Good morning!!!!

I missed you all so much and hope you missed me at least a smidge! ;)

I also hope you all had a marvelous week while I was away! I am having a hard time coming up with words to describe just how marvelous my week away was, so today’s post will be light on words, but I will be sharing some of my favourite pictures and moments from my holiday!

- Taking my first steps off the plane and into Barbados was pretty marvelous!

The thing you think is a “must do” while visiting Barbados?
Are the locals/community nice?
I am a raw vegan and just curious how well it would accommodate one… Is there a large amount of fruit/veggies available?

Reply

Meg May 5, 2014 at 10:22 PM

great questions :D thank you so much Mary

Jordan May 5, 2014 at 8:25 PM

Uhmm DUH we missed you! Although you did hold true to your instagram promise so I suppose that makes up for leaving us ;)
But seriously, your trip looks amazinggg. I think my favorite part is that you experienced “a state of peacefulness that I’ve never experienced ever before.” That’s a feeling like no other and something not many people get to truly experience and enjoy. Gosh, I hope I get to feel that on vacation (in two weeks!!!! but whose counting…)
and as always, jealous of your tan…
