What a way to end 2018!! A fun night in Baltimore followed by a week-long cruise in the Caribbean! Talk about the best Christmas presents ever – I think I’m going to ask for an all-inclusive for a Christmas present this year haha.

At the beginning of the cruise, we went to a comedy routine. Normally, I don’t think a lot of comedians are funny (sorry, I’m just picky) but this guy was frickin’ hilarious. He had me laughing so hard my stomach hurt! I would say that was the highlight of our time on the cruise. And the highlight of our time OFF the cruise was definitely our time on the beach, drinking bottomless rum punch from a coconut. I don’t know why, but drinking from a coconut makes it so much more fun than drinking from a regular, boring cup. Seriously, though, I have really good memories of this time with my sisters and their hunnies. Fun times!

Near the southern border of Canada, close to Niagara Falls, is a gorgeous town called Niagara-on-the-lake. My family and I got to visit my Aunt, Uncle, and Cousins last Fall, and they just so happen to live in this beautiful place. Every time I visit, I can’t get over the perfectly manicured lawns, the curb appeal of every single home, and the wineries. OH MY GOSH. THE WINERIES. I could go on and on about them! We got to visit a few and I’ll never forget the fun we had! I bought a bottle from one of them, actually, and even though it’s been almost a year, I just can’t bring myself to open it. It is so delicious and such a unique blend that I am afraid to open it for anything less than a special occasion. I know how ridiculous that sounds.

Anyway, we got to visit Toronto as well during our stay in Canada. The Distillery District is always fun to go to, but I think the one place I can never pass up is a restaurant called The Marché. In all my travels, I’ve never really come across something as unique as this place. It incorporates a ton of different cultures, all with individual kiosks, and you can order whatever you want, whenever you want as you walk around and “feast with your eyes”. I’m so hungry right now.

I miss my family a lot at the moment, and this is bringing back a lot of fond memories for me. I think I’m gonna go so I can call my mom or something. Bye!

This year’s mini-holiday to New Mexico was so much fun! We got a chance to see a whole new side of Taos that I never knew existed. This gorge is such a beautiful landmark and I am so happy we got a chance to spend some time here. I seriously should have taken more pictures. Although I will say this: I really like to live in the moment, and grabbing my camera really takes away from the moment. I’ve found that taking pictures right off the bat, then enjoying the rest of our time together as a family is the best balance for us!
