Admittedly, it’s been a while since I have posted anything. We are back in Aruba and I’m feeling nostalgic since this is where I began my blog in 2017. I have actually been working on my cookbook. I also have a new career after retiring from nursing. I have set a goal of April – May of this year to finish it. It’s been a work in progress.

Have you ever seen bluer water? It’s so amazing here!

We are once again with our Connecticut friends that we met in Aruba. We have so much fun together. Distance doesn’t allow us to see one another as often as we would like. However, we pick up where we left off. It doesn’t seem as though any time has passed between us at all.

Alfie’s in Aruba! Best burgers and wings on the island
Old and new friends! Life is good.
Pool friends!

Sun, beach, and good food are never at a loss here. There is rarely ever any rain and always a nice breeze. The beautiful turquoise water just rejuvenates your every being. We left home just in time to miss a snow storm. Did I mention that my husband hates cold weather? I myself enjoy a good snow. Seems we only get one good one a year where we live now.

We have eaten some awesome food at some great restaurants. I have taken photos of some of our dishes. Others didn’t make it because I ate before I clicked……sometimes you just have to dive in. The food on this desert island is truly amazing, but so are the people. They truly make you feel at home and have your vacation interests at heart. It’s one of the reasons why we continue to come back every year.

Yemanja, Aruba! An absolute must!

If you’ve never been to Aruba it comes highly recommended. I can promise you won’t be sorry you took the time to explore this happy little island.

I hope you enjoy the pictures! I want to give my site a facelift! I also want to do some affiliation with a few folks that I enjoy. Stay tuned! I’m moving up! Stay safe and healthy too!

Til next time,

Ciao xoxo
