It has been a few weeks since our last post, and I wanted to let everyone know what was going on...
We were minding our own business and enjoying our time with my parents in Longboat Key, FL the week of Labor Day when we got word that Hurricane Irma was headed straight for our home. We cut the week short, packed a few bags, (and Oly bear!) and drove up to Pennsylvania where my parents live to wait out the storm. You can view our first vlog episode here!
We figured we would only be there a few days, but we ended up staying an entire week. We knew our apartment complex didn't have power and gas was very scarce. So we figured we would turn this into an unplanned "relaxing" vacation. We took Oly hiking in the mountains, visited a beautiful (and cold) waterfall, and spent some more quality time with my family.

By Tuesday, we had received a text message from Royal Caribbean stating that our cruise for that weekend had been canceled. They were going to be using the Majesty of the Seas for Humanitarian efforts in the Caribbean. Can't be mad about that! Sure we were disappointed, as we had been looking forward to this getaway since the beginning of the year, but we can always reschedule for something even better. :)
Anyways, when we returned home, everything was luckily undamaged, but we unfortunately still didn't have any power. That kind of threw off my plans for getting our lives back together a little bit before flying out to Cancun for our stay at the Thompson Playa del Carmen, but nonetheless, we did get everything settled during that hectic week and took off again!
We just returned from Mexico and had the BEST time. I will be writing an entirely different post on that soon!
ANYWHOOO ... I wanted to catch you all up since it looks like we have been slacking lately and did want to let you know that we were not able to take our trip to the Bahamas as scheduled. We are now back on track and ready for our next adventure!
