Last week marked the tenth anniversary of our wedding on Santorini Island...
Our anniversary gifts usually follow the Hallmark gift list. We find a creative way to incorporate the suggestion into a simple and inexpensive gift or activity. One of my favorites was year nine, the pottery year, when we went to a date-night wheel throwing class. It was difficult and messy (so unlike the scene from Ghost) but lots of fun and we have a small bowl (that was supposed to be a cylinder), to commemorate it.
However, for year ten, we felt that it was time to go big. It was a milestone anniversary and the perfect time to get away. So where do we go? And what about that Hallmark list?
Well, the suggestion for year ten is tin or aluminum. I decided that somewhere on those big ol' cruise ships there has to be some tin or aluminum.
So a cruise it was. It doesn't hurt that I love to cruise. I've been through the Western Caribbean two times, and Michael and I have cruised the Greek Isles and Alaska. And I've never been disappointed. The different ports, combined with the food and entertainment onboard, make for the perfect vacation. There is truly something for everyone.
Even though we were more than ready to pack our bags, we knew we couldn't be away too long. So we chose a four night cruise out of Miami to the Bahamas.
We squeezed in an extra night in Ft. Lauderdale, then made our way to Miami to set sail on Royal Caribbean's Enchantment of Seas...
But no matter how hard I tried, I couldn't shake the feeling that we were forgetting something.
