Her blog is pretty amazing!

As for her, she is awesome and definitely someone you must meet!
Just read this post & see for yourself!
Today I'm going to share my favorite vacations. Spring break is about vacations, right??
#1 St. Maarten/Anguilla in the Caribbean
After graduating from college, I had the opportunity to visit the Caribbean with a good friend.
If you want a vacation with a capital V, go to the Caribbean.
Warm weather, food that was to-die-for, and sights that made your eyes hurt they were so pretty. And the drinks? Let's just say the alcohol was the best I've ever had. Melon colada, anyone??
|My friend, Melissa, and I|
In our 3 years together, my husband and I have been on several. PA to Oklahoma. PA to Alaska. PA to Maine.
|May 2011-my favorite day in Alaska (yes, there was one) because it was 90 degrees (must have been a freak accident)|
#3 Los Angeles
Last fall, for a friend's wedding, we made a rather impromptu weekend trip to Los Angeles. It was only three days, but it was the best weekend I can remember in, honestly, years.
Why was it so great? It was the complete opposite of my everyday. It was warm. It was different and new. It had all the stores and chain restaurants that are only found in the lower 48 (Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf, Anthropologie, Trader Joe's, Panera, etc.).
|This was, hands down, the most relaxing moment of 2011. 85 degrees, getting a tan, wearing shorts, and drinking the most amazing iced coffee ever.|
So tell me (and Breanna!). What have your favorite vacations been? Are they incredibly exotic? Or are you, like me, just happy to break away from the ordinary for awhile?
