    It looks like a fantasy…but I could definitely and happily hang out there for a while.

    Oh Melissa! Can I come too?!? See that little patio with the fabric tent? It’d be perfect for lounging under while drinking daiquiris after a dip in the pool…

    Isn’t that color unbelievable! Can you imagine kicking back under that tent just listening to the waves (yes, Barbara, a nice daiquiri would definitely complete the picture!), and then after awhile, jumping into that pool and floating up and down on a floaty cushion! Yep, that is a real fantasy place, I’d say.

    “When do we leave?” LOL. That’s what my husband said when I showed him the photo! Some day we’ll get to go somewhere exotic, sans-kids of course! Beautiful!

    Sure looks nice. Even we, could need a swim in that pool as we have almost 90F here today. Puh! It’s far too hot for my taste LOL.
    Hope you have a great weekend.
    Love Elzie

    Beautiful pics….we actually did swim with sea turtles out in the ocean in Hawaii…..we also surfed north shore, hiked the rainforest, climbed waterfalls, and went down in a submarine on the same trip….we had the kids with us, so now its so hard to top that…….we are going to Universal Orlando next week….in this economy the kids will have to settle for that lol….at least its something!!! (id rather be in Bali lol)

    I want to go there!!! Never a good sign when they don’t say how much it is but do explain where to land your private jet :-)

    Hi Melissa!

    The only thing that could make that dreamy vacation spot better would be some adorable Cabana Boys bringing us some of those frilly drinks that have paper umbrellas in them! Heaven!

    I hope you aren’t too overwhelmed with the wedding plans. Remember to breathe! I am getting so excited for you, my dear!

    Big hugs and lots of love,
    Debbie
