We are home.  And as much as I love being back in my house, sleeping in my own bed, and having a normal schedule again, I am a little bit missing the #cruiselife we've been living for the past week.  

I'm currently overwhelmed by the thought of blogging about a 7-day adventure.  There is no possible way to do that in one post.  And had I been here last week posting about the ordinary things, I would have written seven, ordinary posts, right?  So I've decided to break it down into smaller chunks and give each highlight it's own individual post.  But that's going to take awhile.  There are over 800 pictures to edit!

The overall recap of the week was that we had an amazing, once in a lifetime adventure with wonderful friends, and we did things we never even knew were options before.  And given enough time on land, we would consider going on another cruise...after some kids graduate, and after a few missions, and after some weddings...
On second thought, it's a good thing we went when we did, because it might be a few years before the planets align for another cruise...but if they do, we would definitely be interested!    

Here are a few pictures, but the rest of the details are going to have to wait until I make it through 125 more loads of laundry...I'll try to be speedy.    

Thank you so much for all of the sweet thoughts and all of your interest in my little life.  I totally appreciated having emails, texts, and messages waiting for me when I finally turned my phone back on Sunday morning.


  1. Ohhhhh, the pictures! Beautiful and exciting!
    Can't wait for more. But take your time, I know clean laundry comes first. And groceries. And schoolwork. : )
    You were missed, my happy friend!

  2. Your pictures are beautiful! I love the composition of the first one! Welcome home! So glad you had a wonderful safe trip!
