If you’ve ever thought about living in Cayman, this post is for you! I’ve received many messages over the years from those thinking of calling Grand Cayman home asking me what life is really like here. And I realized I’ve not shared too much on the topic! I would have loved something like this 4 […]
After a longggg 3 months in lockdown, that included a full 24-hour stay-at-home order and no outings whatsoever on Sundays, the Cayman COVID-19 regulations are finally starting to lift and we booked a staycation! It was all very tentative. Two weeks before our stay, I received an email from the Kimpton Seafire with an incredible […]
The past year has been quite the crazy one for Ben and me! We got engaged, started a business, I turned 30 and we planned our wedding. So when we were planning our visit to Canada for Christmas, we decided to book a few nights away just for the two of us in Prince Edward […]
Yesterday, our typically idyllic paradise home of Grand Cayman was hit by 7.7 magnitude earthquake that lastest over 2 minutes. I’ve felt an earthquake once before in Toronto while working on the 3rd floor of the AGO. My desk rattled for a few seconds. Some people asked, “Is that an earthquake?” This was NOTHING like […]
We’re 5 short weeks away from our wedding here in Grand Cayman! Oh my gosh, how did we get here already?! It feels like we got engaged just yesterday, even though it’s now been well over a year. In the weeks after Ben proposed, we knew we had a big decision to make – where […]
At my book club the other night, we each shared something we love about living in Cayman. Since moving to the Cayman Islands in March of 2017, I have a growing list of things I love about this Caribbean island. Most of it is obvious – the beaches, the food, the people. But there are […]
To celebrate my 30th birthday, we spent three days in Colorado, hiking and camping in Rocky Mountain National Park and one luxurious night out in Denver!
This post is way overdue but so much of this trip was hard to put into words. Celebrating my 30th birthday with my fiancé under the wide-open sky of the Colorado wilderness was indescribable. But I’m going to try!
Being an expat, home – the place that truly feels like home – can be such a wondrous thing to rediscover. Lying in my bed in the girls’ bunk room in the dead of night – in the same bed I’ve slept in every summer of my life – I notice so many things I’ve never […]
I turn thirty this Friday. The big 3-0. The dirty thirty. Thirty, flirty and thriving. This is 30. My sister (and a lot of other people) asked me how I feel about turning 30, and I’ve been saying that it’s just a number. But today, with 3 days left in my 20s, I feel a […]
On World Earth Day this year, Ben and I decided to hike the Mastic Trail for the second time. Spanning 2.1 miles through the heart of Cayman’s east side, the Mastic Trail is a fun change of scenery from island beach life. The 200-year-old trail runs through 900 acres of protected land which was formed […]
