Rod & Jewel!!! They are like family to me - more than family - they have walked with me through years of healing and hope, and made such an impact on me. I got to live with them for a while, and my life direction has been shaped over the years for the better by their care and love. Their generosity blows my mind. AND you will not find more fun people to go on vacation with.
This is actually the third vacation I've been on with them as a family. We went to Kauai a few years ago. Then Jeff and I met up with them in Cabo last year on our honeymoon. You might think it's crazy that we'd want to be with other people on our honeymoon, but we did. Not a second of awkwardness. :) We both walked away knowing it wouldn't have been as full and fun if we kept our time to ourselves. Not to mention they have a beautiful villa at Club Diamante and we felt like royalty. Anyway, that's where we're going tomorrow! Barry & Bonnie & Sharon are going too, and I don't know how I lucked out to get to spend my vacation with such fun, lovely people. It's going to be a party, that is for sure.
Here are some photos from last year!

Jeff will be in Houston, sadly. I will miss that guy! I'm trying not to think about it. But my excitement for a real vacation with my favorite people definitely helps me overcome that.
Excited! Grateful! Ready to eat lots of chips & salsa & fish tacos!
