Hey Guys! How was your Spring Break? I hope you had a wonderful time and were able to recharge yourself! Andrew and I went on a cruise for the week, just the two of us. The kids weren’t super excited to spend their Spring Break at home, but when Andrew booked this cruise as a surprise Christmas present for me, he didn’t realize it was Spring Break. All in all, the kids were pretty good sports about it.

We cruised on Holland America and really had a great time. My apologies ahead of time for the lack of food pictures. Every meal I thought I needed to take pictures next time, but you know how that can be sometimes. Next time never came around. I was in full relax mode instead of blog mode for sure.

If you have never gone on a cruise before, I highly recommend it. Perfect for relaxing but also getting in some beautiful places to visit.

Our vacation started with a drive. We opted to drive to Ft Lauderdale from home (Apex, NC). Eleven hours, not too bad. Nice to decompress in the car for the day.

As you can see, it was truly an ah-mazing vacation! So many beautiful ports, good food and lots of warm sun.

We came back from vacation very relaxed and not feeling like we needed a vacation after our vacation! Bonus, right?

What has been your favorite Spring Break vacation?
