Actually, I’m quite excited for the New Year. Fresh beginnings. Resolutions. I’m feeling particularly motivated this year. Not sure why. But I’ll take it.
Wishing you all happiness, health, and a year of wonderful adventure.

What is it about travel – the more you get away, the more you want to get away? I just returned from a pretty incredible Caribbean vacation and I’m already dreaming of my next escape.
St. Bart’s would be nice. Obviously! There are some seriously swanky spots that seem unbelievable (i.e. Hotel Isle de France, Eden Rock, Le Sereno…). But for something off the beaten path, what about the Hotel La Banane?
Ok. Maybe the name doesn’t do the place justice (!), but I’m curious what it’s like. It’s a “hidden” property of nine bungalows that was recently refurbished. Many items in the rooms were designed and made in the 50s by Pierre Jeanneret – the cousin of Le Corbusier – giving this spot a seemingly authentic mid-century-vibe.
What do you think? Charming or too kitschy?

My holiday is starting early this year. I’m off to the beach! Not just any beach, but the white sand, turquoise water type of beach. Yay.
I’m so excited. Aside from a 5 hr flight with 2 kids under the age of 4, things are looking pretty.
I’ll be back in touch when I’m well tanned! Have a fabulous week!
