The Bahamas No. 3

This was our third trip to The Bahamas. Our first visit was in 2006 when we accompanied our son during spring break of his senior year in high school. Back in our day, we went to the Florida coast for our spring break, but our son and friends chose The Bahamas. Imagine that...we told him that we would gladly be chaperones for the trip! We had such a great time on Paradise Island! We stayed at the Atlantis Royal Towers when they were brand new. The Reef and the Cove hadn't been built yet. The last two times we stayed at the Cove Atlantis. I wrote about our last trip in 2013 here.

This mosaic of photos were taken from the cabana where we met up with our friends and spent most of our days at the Cove. It rained the first three days on and off, but that was okay with me. One of my favorite parts of the trip was looking at the gorgeous colors of the water in the ocean. Another favorite was how well the staff pampered us.

May Happy List

Besides Spring that brings sunshine and flowers, there have been some other things to add to my May happy list.

Mother's Day was very enjoyable, spent with our daughter, Ashleigh. She came over bearing flowers, a framed canvas of my granddog (her dog, Tangerine) and a Michaels gift card from our son and family in California. Dan joined us for brunch and then Ash and I got our nails done and we shopped at Old Navy. We were surprised when we saw that the nail salon was jammed with clients. They said it's like that every Mother's Day. Who would have known? 

Later in the week, a friend of Ashleigh's came to her house and gave us facials. Besides the facial, it was a delight to watch Ashleigh interact with her friend: two beautiful young women who value their friendship.

Tea Anyone?

My friend, Anita, and I attended our third fabulous Downton Abbey tea in Kokomo, Indiana. It was hosted by the Howard County Historical Society & Kokomo Public Library, and was held at Elite Banquet & Conference Center on Lafountain Street.
