Cruises are a trip!

Did I tell you my husband and I went on a cruise? Probably not since guilt filled my heart about leaving all my family and friends in the cold. After that first snowstorm hit, we decided going on a cruise would be great.

So we went onboard. To relax. To enjoy the sun. To eat all those wonderful dishes I would never cook at home. I’m home and writing now, but I’ll share more photos.
