The World Cancelled My Cruise and I Lost My Damn Mind

It shouldn’t really be a surprise to anyone but… my cruise got cancelled. I was really holding out hope that we’d be sailing in May but when the CDC extended their “no sail” guidelines another 100 days it was pretty much a given that I wouldn’t be sipping colorful drinks on a ship deck anytime

So does anyone else just have a full on mental breakdown and book a cruise? Nope? Just me? That’s cool.

Bermuda, Bahama, Come on Pretty Mama

Announcement time? I’ve been keeping it somewhat under wraps for no real reason but I’m excited to say that I am just seven days away from a vacation! Even more exciting is that I’ll be going on this trip with my OG partner in crime, my sister Shannon! This is easily the most last minute
