Because sometimes we cannot escape in real life, we must do it in our minds… a little visual aid from a glorious trip to Turks & Caicos back in 2013 – when I was pregnant, sober, and enjoying the last moments of leisurely freedom and alone time with my man and a solid crew of friends. We stayed at the gorgeous, and private Villa Bella Vita and ran down our days on the pristine beaches, in the warm crystal clear ocean, and on the property itself where midnight pool swims and home cooked meals were abundant.. (did I mention one of our friends is a chef?! Winning). The pace in T&C is calmer, quieter and slower than anywhere I’ve ever been and because so much of it is left untouched (and has barely any American visitors), it’s a getaway unlike any other. Looking back on this trip today and grateful for such beautiful memories.
