Here we are, back from vacation. Already. Blink. Gone. Next. But before we get too far ahead of ourselves, we have some Vacation Things worth discussing. Well, I’m not sure that you’ll agree, but these are the little nuggets that I saved up just for you.
While on our most fabulous cruise ship, The Oasis of the Seas, we enjoyed luxury accommodations in a Grand Suite. We enjoyed them because last year while we were in Alaska we booked this cruise and at that time I was high on Vacation Life, where money is no object! And the good times roll! And it’s the nation of Why Not! And my life mantra, “If not now, WHEN? If not us, WHO?” came into play. So we did. And then it was too late to downgrade to a much more sensible balcony stateroom because they were all sold out so we were stuck with our Grand Suite. Hardships, I know.

p.s. – note the one-lone-pillow off to the side, with a head-indent? Guess who.
See how I fit perfectly right in the middle of it all:
