The Hubby and I grew very fond of our yearly vacations...we loved the planning, anticipation and most of all, the ability to experience new cultures.
We started our vacationing in 2005 when we decided to get married in Hawaii and honeymoon on NCL's Hawaiian Island Cruise on The Pride of America. In 2007, we ventured to the Caribbean with NCL and visited Honduras, Belize, Cozumel and the Bahamas. In November of 2008 and March of 2009, we decided to again cruise the Caribbean...yes, the Caribbean sun is hard to pass up! We toured the nutmeg factories in Grenada "The Spice Isle", the Baths in Virgin Gorda and we loved the friendly people of Dominica. Every vacation spawned a new appreciation of this wonderful world we live in and provided much needed R&R.

Our last vacation occured in June of 2009 - we returned to Hawaii and visited our wedding spot, traversed the infamous 'Road to Hana' and spent a few days in the authentic Hawaiian Island of Molokai. Coincidentally, nine months later, Roland IV was born... a trip to the Phallic Rock in Molokai may have helped.

Some may call it selfish, I think it's well deserved!
Join me over the next few weeks as I prepare for the vacation and experience the emotional ups and downs of leaving the little one for a week!
