reluctantly back to reality after lots of island time!

by amy on 18 May 2011

we’ve been back from our honeymoon for about 10 days + i’m just finally getting back into the swing of things. the things i usually love to do – work, blog, cook lots of meals, keep our house looking good – have been surprisingly hard to accomplish. i think i have a case of take-me-back-to-the-caribbean-itis!

the good news is that yesterday + today, i’ve felt the most productive + back-to-reality than i’ve felt since before the wedding. it sure would be nice to sit beachside + drink rum punch all the time, though…

i’ve got a great recipe coming on friday, + professional wedding photos on the blog next week. in the meantime, enjoy a few more pics from our honeymoon on st. kitts + nevis! (+ yes, the pic up top is of us!)

most restaurants served these crazy addictive + amazing plaintain + sweet potato crisps.

requisite palm-tree-from-a-funny-angle picture. i can’t deny that i love it!

a delicious beachside lunch at mango at the four seasons.

me with rum punch, of course!

Your pictures are great! I especially love the first one – it looks like it should be in a magazine. :-) how was your meal at Mango? I just looked up the website and it looks delish!

ha, thank you! that’s one of my favorite pictures, too. at mango, we started with a glass of wine for me + some crazy rum drink for honey, then we split a tomato + avocado salad with citrus vinaigrette. after that, i got a delicious root vegetable roti with flatbread, + honey got their amazing caribbean take on a pulled pork sandwich. everything was wonderful!

WOW! everything on that menu sounds so tasty! I saw your vegetable roti picture on facebook + that’s definitely something I would love. If you have pictures of any of the other things, feel free to send them to me. You know I always love to talk about and look at food!

Welcome back to reality…as much as I love to travel and eat good food? I usually am happy to get back to Lucy-cat and my own bed too. Except for when we went to Napa…wanted to quit our jobs and never leave!

ha, i hear you on Napa! i’ve been three times in the last few years + have absolutely loved it each time. the combination of great wine, excellent food + gorgeous scenery makes for a perfect vacation. i especially love finding some of the smaller, quieter wineries + really spending time getting to know ‘em. might have to plan a trip there soon!
