Sorry for not writing for the last couple of weeks, but I was living the life and enjoying every minute. I have spent 2 weeks in Saint Maarten, for Thanksgiving and celebrating my 50th Birthday in the Penthouse condo with rooftop pool …….compliments of my wonderful husband Dan. I cannot express in words how thankful I am and what a great time I had…..it was absolutely great!!!!!!
Every day I woke to beautiful blue skies, crystal clear blue water, sun and the beauty of the island…….I am just so lost for words…..I had the time of my life and I am and will be forever grateful for Dan……pushing me everyday to live for the moment……I would not be here if it was not for him……Thank you baby!!!!!!
Everyday was beautiful, always sunny, a slight breeze, blue skies and nice warm climate. We woke every morning…..had breakfast and lunch by our own private pool on the roof over looking the ocean. We had the best meals at our favorite restraurants, lots of fish (especially lobster and conch)……I was in heaven. We saw all our local friends, we had a get together on the roof top, with our good friends from the resort – drinks and lots of laughs and MaMa’s pizza….(goat cheese pie – so good!!!)
At night, Dan and I went fishing off the new pier in the marina……so much fun (unfortunately we only caught a crab). The other evenings we went to Casino, hung and caught up with our friends there…..at the same time we did win some money…..I had a beginners luck streak playing 3 card poker…..I was so proud – Got 3 of a kind and a straight flush.
Then we went into town on a major shopping spree…….We went to the Robert Graham store for Dan…..yes we did some major damage….3 hours later……Dan, is going to be looking way to cool with his new outfits…….especially the jeans. Then we went shopping for me…..I got few beautiful dresses……I will not be able to eat, drink or breathe when wearing. I will be stinking good for a long time with all the perfume I got……and most of all….Dan got me a absolutely gorgeous bracelet……I LOVE IT…….Then I got earings, ring and Necklace….bathing suits and cover-up…..and so much more. Dan really out did himself…….I am so thankful for everything.
It was absolutely a wonderful birthday celebration……so much fun and relaxing. But with every good trip, there is always a little hip-cup that happens and makes the trip more memorable. Dan had a little problem after eating a rice krispy treat that I offered him…….yes, Dan needed to make his international dentist visit to the French side this time……yes, his cap came off and cracked upper tooth when he bit down on cap. Yeap, it was my fault again lol. And then the final speed bum, luckly at the end of the trip, as we were leaving (just as we got to the airport to leave) there was a bomb scare at the airport…the airport was evacuated and we were stranded in the parking lot in the blazing hot sun for 4 hours, with no water or food, and no medicine or luggage. And to make things worse….I had a major sugar low and a bad seizure… Not a good time for either of us. Our flight was cancelled and we were sent to the French side to a hotel for the night, and transported back to the airport the next morning for a flight home. This was the first time I could not wait to get back home…….(yes, I was happy to land in New York, but my heart was sad, missing the warm weather and beauty of the island, and our friends)…..But you must leave inorder to come back.
