We finally made it back home. We sandwiched this trip right between two other commitments, so we re-packed and went straight to the second one after our return flight landed. It felt good to sleep in our own bed again last night! These are some snapshots from my phone, but I have a lot more coming from our camera soon (that’s either a promise or a warning…yikes). It’s hard to describe how much this trip meant to us (and my parents), yet it was also bittersweet for reasons I wish I could share here. I know there are a lot of places you can go for a tropical getaway, but these islands are worth the trip for anyone.
