Shop holiday - I'm going on a trip down memory lane!
Hello everyone! Just a little reminder that all orders placed between 5/06/19 - 27/06/19 will be posted on 28th June.
I’m going on a trip and so will be processing (and making!) all orders on my return.
I’m heading to Miami, Florida, and then on to the Bahamas. This is my first big trip since moving back to the UK and so I'm very much looking forward to it - and some R+R in the sunshine!
Chris and I took the exact same trip the first year we met - 11 years ago! And so I thought I’d share some of the photos from my first time in Miami and the Bahamas, and then we can see how much has changed when I return next week.
We stayed in Miami for a few nights, then went over to Abaco, before spending the last few nights in Freeport, Grand Bahama.
When we arrived in Miami I was THRILLED, because at the time my fave everrrr show was CSI Miami, Horatio in particular was just the best character in my opinion!!
Within a few hours of arriving, I’d been my usual idiot self - I raced Chris to the pool outside, tried to take a short cut, slipped and really banged my shin - so I had a gigantic purple bump for the first week or so of our holiday (I hurt the exact same leg a few months later in Madeira, so thought it was cursed on holidays!!).
Miami was amazing. The first night we got there, we went out and ordered dinner. I ordered a Greek salad from the starters section, and it was the biggest salad I had ever seen. And as soon as it was put in front of me, jet lag hit and I almost fell asleep on top of it! Haha.
We caught a bus to a huge mall, and I couldn’t help myself and bought five pairs of shoes that I somehow managed to squeeze into my case - the cream leopard pair are in the pix below, with my freshly bruised shin!
After Miami we took two more planes, and a boat, to get to Abaco. Our cabin had a hammock overlooking the ocean, it was lovely. We tried to sleep in the hammock one evening and were awoken by some really strange, creepy noises - so back to the cabin we fled!
I can’t believe it’s been 11 years since that trip, and what’s also unbelievable is that I still have a good lot of those clothes (not that they all still fit me!). I’m hoping for more adventures this time, too :-)
So that’s my trip down memory lane :-)
