Hey Babes! I'm sorry that I've been missing in action. Since this month started there has been one unexpected event after another - I can barely catch my breath - yet here we are almost halfway through September! One example of a recent setback is the fact that instead of writing this post from the sunny, pristine shores of the Caribbean, I am planted here in the city. You see Hurricane Irma destroyed all of my vacay plans, I vented about this on Twitter... I went from a canceled flight, to lodging reservations put under scrutiny, to modified accommodations (on an entirely different island), and finally to canceled reservations with a credit issued for future use... There were several highs and lows in trying to manage this emotional roller coaster of expectations versus disappointments. However, now that it is all said and done: I am not mad at all! Although I do not believe that everything happens for a reason (as the common phrase goes), especially when it brings suffering to others, I do believe in attempting to make the best of an unexpected situation. Not only did I learn several valuable lessons through this ordeal, I was also reminded of who I am and what is important to me as an individual. 
Without a doubt, I will have other opportunities to go on vacation. In this moment, my heart goes out to everyone around the world whose life has been or is being adversely impacted by natural disasters 💕
Until next time,
Xx

  1. I love that look! Even though you don't believe in that common phrase, I'm glad it was a teaching moment for your good. Peace Be Still and enjoy yourself Queen!

  2. It's so hard when you're in the midst of something like that---because you have so many emotions going on. But it's good you are able to look back and learn from it. I wish everyone could do that!!
    Lovely pants, Joi!! They are the most perfect floral!
    XOXO

    1. So true! There were a number of emotions, it felt like a rollercoaster ride :( On a more positive note, I really do believe that things turned out for the very best :)
      About the pants-Thank you! They remind of PJs, but better, LOL!

  4. How disappointing for you. I know how you feel because seven years ago our wedding in Barbados had to be postponed at the last minute due to the volcano in Iceland erupting. We were ready to leave for the airport with our mums and little one. It should have been at the end of my maternity leave. Instead, our guests were there (they'd flown out a week before) but not us, and I ended up going back to work and we rescheduled for a month later. No guests though! We can laugh about it now! When we finally got there it was such a relief. I hope your rearranged holiday is worth waiting for :-)
