2 condos in West Palm Beach, Florida on Singer Island.
It was hot. And humid. But somehow it didn't matter because we were all on VACATION!
AG, JB, JL, MS, CB, MM, LI, and me - enjoying a break from the everyday grind, and having a ton of fun.
After lunch, we went to the grocery store, stocked up on food, drinks, snacks, and headed back to the condo.
This was my view for the week. Sparkly toes, hot sand, and beautiful turquoise water. Thankfully we had a wonderful ocean breeze to cool us down each day. Without it, it wouldn't be so much love.
It felt so decadent to have dedicated lounge chairs each day with a big umbrella to provide some much needed shade from the strong, hot sun.
Lauren commented that she felt like she was starring in her own Corona commercial. We all were.
Beach. Sun. Cold beer. Love.
This is the amazing group of girls & guy that were on the trip.
We went to a bunch of fabulous restaurants, a bunch of interesting bars and clubs, and had a grand, sparklicious time.
Cubana Nuevo Latino, a little away from the main stretch of Clamatis Street (one of the main streets in West Palm). Mojitos came by the pitcher, and we enjoyed great service and a wonderful meal.
After dinner, we headed to a rooftop bar & dance club and danced our asses off until 2am.
Drenched in sweat, we hopped in cabs and headed back to the condo. We all put our bathing suits on and headed down to the beach - yes, it was around 2:45am.
So, at 3am, we're on the beach in bikinis, playing with sparklers!!!
It was so much fun, and so amazing to be out at the beach in the dark frolicking without a care in the world.
And, then AG and I went in the ocean. At 3am. In the dark. It was AMAZING. There was enough moonlight to allow us to see through the water to the sandy bottom. We didn't go in very deep, but deep enough to enjoy the warm ocean water (and rinse off the sweat from dancing all night).
Here's to a fun-filled, sun-filled, amazing, relaxing, week in Florida.
We all agreed that this must become an annual trip.
Can't wait for next year and another sparklicious vacation!
My final thought - we earn our vacation days, so make the most of them. Do something fun. Do something you enjoy. Do something that makes you happy.
These few days in Florida made us all happy like an unexpected rainbow on a sunny day!
