#MIMM: Feeling Refreshed...

Hey everyone!

Doesn't it feel like it's been 11 days since we last spoke...

Oh wait...

It has been! (Time sure sails on by when you're on a cruise ship hehe!)

Labadee, Haiti <3


I just wanted to quickly check in to tell you all how marvelous my family vacation was...

On our way to Magic Kingdom, Disney World.
Feeling the magic.
Hollywood Studios, Disney World.
Formal night on the cruise.
We went to Disney first then, on our cruise :)


How good I am feeling both mentally and physically since disconnecting from it all! (And instead, focusing myself on connecting with myself, SuperFit, my family and of course, my surroundings!)

Enjoying some time in the marvelous sun!


I am feeling so refreshed (aside from this cold I'm trying to rid myself of!)...

Enjoying fresh coconut water in Falmouth, Jamaica.


I am feeling so easy breezy overall! (Everything seems so much clearer now that I've had time to clear my mind and focus on just living and the moment!)

Sailing on the Freedom of the Seas, Royal Carribean.

Did I mention I found my running mojo while on holidays?!


I ran 1 hour every day on vacation and it felt FUreakin' marvelous!

Perhaps it had something to do with the new shoes I got! (And the view I had while running on the treadmill lol)

Nike, Lunarlon

On top of running...

Both SuperFit and I had a great time trying out all of the exercise equipment on the cruise ship!

We got so excited when we saw all the new toys we had to play with!

No doubt...

We had nothing but marvelous workouts while on vacation!

We did not do this on purpose lol

All in all...

This time away really gave me the opportunity to...

Reconnect with so much more that I'd imagined that...

Not for one second am I not...

GrateFUl for everything that I came to experience and feel with those I love so much! (I feel so blessed!)

Needless to say...

Disconnecting was the best thing I could have done for me and those around me! (I'm so happy I took the time I knew I needed because I totally benefited from it, words cannot explain!)

Tiki Beach, Grand Cayman.

As the days go by (and as I settle back into my home routine, applying what I've learned while away)...

I will continue to share parts of my holidays with you all so that you can see and enjoy the things we came to do as we all connected with one another!

Cupcake making class on board!

Until then...

Have a marvelous day and...

Know that I missed you all!

Talk soon!

Happy :)

  28. It's always lovely to disconnect and reconnect with your family and loved ones. I see no better way to do that than with a trip to Disney! And that cruise ship's fitness center looks mighty impressive! So glad you got to see Mickey!

  30. Glad you had a refreshing and well earned trip! Its so easy to be caught up in technology these days that when you take some time to step away from it- its like a renewed self!

    Its great you were able to spend time with your family! I think at the end of the year I might head off to singapore or malaysia with my mum and sister before I move interstate- one last family jaunt! Have a great start to your week!

Now I need to plan a trip for my man and I, we really could use the time away together without all the daily distractions.
