Friday linky 2/17

– Posted in: featured

My intention really was to have this post published by 9 o’clock this morning, but I’m still recovering from travel, an overdose of sunshine (I know, don’t hate me), and a food belly which is making me very sluggish today. Oddly, I’m still hungry despite the fact that I’ve literally been stuffing my piehole for the past 6 days straight.

So yes, Jamaica was incredible and I promise to post pictures next week!

In the meantime, you can check out my Insta where I uploaded a couple of pics (hope to have a few more published soon! Still on island time, mon).

I mean, can you even with this picture?

Here are a few things on my grateful list for the week. Don’t forget to stop by and visit Lindsay and Krysten and let us know what’s making you happy by adding your link below. We love to hear from you—so spread some sunshine! Here’s what’s tops on my grateful list this week:

Participating in sunset yoga on a pier overlooking the beach and waters of Montego Bay

Stepping out of my comfort zone to climb Dunn’s River Falls which was equal parts amazing and terrifying

Spending Valentine’s Day at a luminous lagoon

Meeting SO MANY new and interesting people from Jamaica (obvs), Finland, Germany, and Canada (I’m sure there are more countries, but again brain = fried)

Watching an incredible sunset over New Jersey on the flight back

Eating all the delicious desserts and foods, including a Caribbean pie made of peanut grits and vegetables. I DIED, you guys

Coming back to fun surprises from Influenster and Merch Nerds (stay tuned for a tshirt review—mine says “Rise and Wine”—HA!)

Getting to see Buster in a week—he was missed!

Ahh.. it sounds like you had a trip like I did – outside my comfort zone but in all the best ways! Leaping!

I’m glad you had such a nice time on your trip! My sister is now thinking of visiting a spa for her 30th Birthday – in a different state though. I could really use a getaway. haha

Ahh… Jamaica sounds divine! Utterly divine! Very glad that you had such an awesome getaway and overdosed on sunshine! I am envious!

Hey girl… happy.. Tuesday? 🙂
Are there seriously many more things in life better than doing sunset yoga while listening to the waves crash against the surf? I find that so incredibly relaxing….

I have to get back on track, I over indulged this weekend and I’m feeling bloated and gross this morning. Gotta whip myself back into shape this week. I’m off Friday so I’m looking forward to a short work week. Woohoo. 🙂

Have a great week hun!! xoxo
