Vacation All I Ever Wanted

Vacation. Seriously, had to get away. 

When Ben started a new job at the end of January, we knew there would be no vacation until the end of May, but that time seemed to drag on....and on....and....

.......Suddenly!  It was May 23rd! Time to book something grand!

So we did. 

Eight days later we were headed to St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands.  

We stayed at a small boutique resort situated on a small bay on the south-eastern side of the island. I liked that this place has anything I could imagine wanting to do, but it also has a beautiful secluded beachside chairs and umbrellas...and hammocks for, you know, lounging in the tropical sun.  I gladly accept.

I picked this little studio for our getaway, and as you can see it was updated and so fresh. Not to mention the view...

To be honest with you, we didn't do too much. We tried paddle boarding (which Ben took to like a fish in the water), we went to Magen's Bay (which is one of the world's top-10 beaches), we ate fresh fish, we got too much sun.

The night we got there we went down to the beach after dinner. The sky was pitch black and only the stars and sliver of the moon were visible. I listened to the waves and all of a sudden.... vacation.

We've taken a lot of great trips together, and I think this one might top the list.  Where did you go on your favorite vacation?
