Bead Cruise 2013

I'll be back to this space as soon as I can. I'm catching up with life following my adventure on Heather Power's Bead Cruise 2013. Oh, and it was an adventure! That is the best way I can describe the experience on my first cruise. On a high, living life to the fullest. In some ways, I felt like I was really living for the first time. I guess travel can do that to you, especially if you are visiting the beautiful locals we did. I can see how this could get addicting!

Well, I don't know if I'm ready for a jet-setter lifestyle just yet, but the trip definitely had a profound impact. I need some time to process it all. Heather, her family and the rest of the bead cruiser ladies are just the nicest, friendliest group! Everyone is kind, warm and welcoming. It feels like an intimate gathering of your best girlfriends. The vibe and feeling is similar to what I described at ArtBLISS last year. Absolutely wonderful. I feel privileged to have been able to go on this cruise and grateful for every opportunity.

  While I take some time to gather myself and get things taken care of here with my family and home, I thought I'd leave you with some of my favorite pics from the excursions from our 3 ports of call: Mexico, Grand Cayman and Jamaica. I hope you like pictures cuz there's a lot of 'em!
