Well, we are back from our week long babymoon in Anguilla. It was exactly what the doctor ordered! While I am sad to be back, I am excited to tell you all about our trip.
First of all, we must discuss the Viceroy Anguilla. The resort is situated between the beaches of Barnes and Meads bays in the small British West Indie island of Anguilla. the remote location and views of the crystal blue waters are beyond magnificent, but the decor - now that takes the cake! Never in my life have I stayed at a more majestically designed resort. The entire resort, like other Viceroy resorts, was designed by my design idol, Kelly Wearstler. But this resort in particular has that extra hint of Kelly Wearstler magic to transport you in to a whole other world that one can only imagine in their dreams. The resort is her signature mix of organic elements with tons textural glamour. Add the stunning island backdrop, and you've got what I like to call, heaven on Earth!

Our babymoon was a marathon week of sunning, swimming, snoozing, reading & eating. Lots and lots of eating! Stressful, I know... I am pretty sure I gained at least 10lbs this week alone. I don't even remember the last time Jared and I went on a vacation and had literally nothing planned. That's the beauty of Anguilla, there is absolutely nothing to do, but relax. With all of the hustle & bustle of the city, stress at work and preparing for baby, I had completely forgotten what it was like to do absolutely nothing - and more importantly - enjoy it! Aside from being lazy bums and hanging around the resort, we did venture out for a couple of lunches and some nice dinners on the island. I've listed some recommendations below.
All in all, the trip was a major success. The hubs completely outdid himself!
He may have even walked away with a "husband of the year" award. =)
I have a feeling this trip may have been the last bit of peace and quiet we will have for a very very very long time. Oy vey!
Okay, enough talking...
Here are a some photo tidbits from our trip. Hope you enjoy! xo
Until next time, Anguilla!
