    A Honeymoon in Jamaica | Sandals Resort on Oh Lovely Day

    Back in April (has it already been over 7 months!?) I was hosted by Sandals Resorts in Jamaica for a little getaway to see what a wedding or honeymoon in Jamaica could be like. To be honest, I had never considered Sandals Resort for a vacation and had never been to Jamaica either. I was beyond pleasantly surprised with how wonderful it was, and have been wanting to take my little family back (to the Beaches version – kiddos allowed!) ever since. It was the most luxurious and pampered I have ever felt. So I wanted to share a bit of my trip with you since many of you are probably planning your honeymoons and destination weddings right now. I highly recommend the experience.

    Can’t you just picture having a destination wedding here? So gorgeous.

    This was my private butler suite. One side was my living quarters with a really lovely bedroom and bathroom bigger than my living room at home, and the other side was a living room and mini-kitchen. Oh, and the pool and jacuzzi was in between. All for little old me!

    We took a really leisurely river rafting excursion (that’s Karr, our boat captain) and all had mini-mock weddings to see what Sandals had to offer in terms of hosting your wedding. They all turned out beautifully.

    The thing I loved most about Sandals was my butler suite and amazing butlers! There were always fun little surprises waiting for me, like a hot drawn bath (how many times have you stayed somewhere with an amazing tub and you never once used it? Happens to me all the time. But when the bath is waiting for you, it is hard to turn down!) and cute little towel animals. And when the food, drinks, and fun is all-inclusive you can just relax and enjoy every second of your honeymoon without thinking about how much you’re spending once you’re there. Jamaica’s gorgeous beaches and it’s relaxed way of life make for one fabulous vacation. I could not have asked for more (except that my husband wasn’t with me – next time!)

    Are you thinking of an all-inclusive like Sandals or a Jamaican destination for your wedding or honeymoon?

    •  I think you've gotta delete "takes direction well" from your résumé Quincy. #becauseheshappy #quincyrhys  Happy 5 months (and 2 days) my happy happy boy. This last month has been such a turnaround. You pretty much look like this allllll the time. You are such a happy little love and when you smile you light up. And you have these dimples  You are a chubby 18 lbs, are rolling and razzing and squawking. You are grabbing your feet and putting everything in your mouth. You pretty much go with the flow these days. The only time you aren't happy is when you want attention. You are really ticklish under your chin and laugh big belly laughs. You love both of your brothers' attention, and handle Calvin's craziness pretty well. You like when I sing to you. We go on adventures now. You still aren't completely sleeping through the night, but one wake up isn't bad and you transitioned from a swaddle to sleepsack and into your bassinet like a champ. You're my best napper. And you are just such a joy. I'm kind of obsessed with you Q. And considering how we started, that's really saying something  #quincysmonthbymonth #quincyrhys
       You don't have to say what you did. I already know... #crymeariver #calvinandquincy  It seems like only yesterday I was bringing Charlie here at this age (there's even a video of Charlie wearing this exact shirt there in the #charlielovestheyellownoodles feed!) And now #calvinlovestheyellownoodles too. I'm gonna blink and Quincy will be doing the same thing. They grow up way too fast -- I'm so grateful to have this time with them. #thesearethedays #calvins2ndyear
