A Most Engaging Vacation

Hey all!!
It's so nice to be back home. Aruba was, of course, amazing!!! The weather was hot and perfect and the casino's blackjack tables were hot as well!! The locals were most hospitable, and the island seemed happy to be hosting us for the week.

We spent a lot of time enjoying the beautiful sunsets on the beach, relaxing, reading and just taking in the quiet time spent together. I'd have to say, it was one of the best trips to Aruba we have ever taken.

I have lots of amazing pictures!

I took some of the crystal clear blue ocean water we spent out days floating in.

I took some of the lazy palm trees blowing in the Aruba sun.

I took some of the blue and green lizards that enjoy sharing the resort areas with the tourists.

I took some of the beautiful sandy beaches and the breath taking, vivid pink sunsets we watched almost every evening.


Come to think of it, one special evening, while walking barefoot on the soft, sandy beach, on our way to capture the last moments of the beautiful sunset.....


My Guy kneeled down on one knee....



and asked me to spend the rest of my life with him......



Of course, I said yes.....

Woot!! Cheers for you. I'm gonna pour some eggnog and bourbon to celebrate! Glad you had a great time! I kept forgetting you were on vacay and kept returning to your blog to read new stuff. Oh well, glad you're back!

Be careful with that ring - you could put your eye out!
