Can you say Fun!!!!

Greetings Family!!
It is really cold and I can’t take it.  It has not even gotten really cold or snowed and yet….I can’t take it!  As I mature my tolerance for cold leaves me.  I really could see living somewhere warm all year long.  Of course I would come “home” for the holidays.  Having a Peña Colada by the pool on Christmas day doesn’t work for me either.  Maybe all of this has to do with the fact that I have just returned from vacation.  It is really hard for me to return to the swing of things when I come back.  All that sun and fun clouds my judgment.  It makes me think that we can actually “live” on vacation.  I am still working on figuring that out family.  We went sailing again on the fabulous Capital Jazz Cruise.   You all might be familiar with the weekend concert held in Maryland every June.  The same organization charters a cruise ship and hosts the most fantastic party on the sea that you will ever attend!  You will never want to go on a regular cruise after attending this one.  How do you top midnight jam sessions with Najee, Alex Bugnon and Phil Perry, a dress up 80’s dance party (Madonna was my influence!), Anthony Hamilton and Uncle Charlie Wilson, line dancing, zumba and salsa classes, documentary and live performance by the original Sugar Hill Gang (what!!), Greek parties and card parties, loved Chrisette Michelle  and Stephanie Mills, seminars and workshops, football party, Dougie Fresh on the Lido deck, church on the boat family with Marvin Sapp!!….and you know how I feel about the spa!  And that was all the first day…lol!  Throw in stops at Curacao, Dominican Republic and Aruba and it was just too much.  I didn’t mention even half of the rest of the cruise.  I needed a vacation from vacation.  But family, that is all now a wonderful memory that I refer to often as I commute in to work.  I am grateful for the much needed break and look forward to the next one.  If you have a chance to check out this cruise …do it!  This is the 2
nd one for us.  Trust me; it will truly be one of the best vacations you have ever taken.  Just in case you don’t believe me here is a picture of me from the boat.

Peace Family!!
