Welcome to Paradise.

Last week, I got the incredible opportunity to get away to the beautiful St. Thomas / St. John Islands! It's just one of the many perks to being friends with a world - renowned dietitian. Jessica was asked to speak at a hospital in St. Thomas - and well, Mindy, Leslie and I were lucky enough to tag along!

Believe me when I say - I contemplated just not coming home. On the beach, I would listen to You and Tequila and daydream about working as a waitress with a big ole flower in my hair at Woody's. Then one day, Kenny Chesney would come in for a beer and fall head over heels in love with me and we would sail off into the sunset together. However, then a sand flea would bite me and I'd wake up and drink another Corona...or two.

It's really incredible when you are surrounded by such natural beauty - it's as though all your worries, fears and struggles find a way to just melt away...at least for the moment. It's almost as if you believe that everything is right in the world - even if it's just for a little while, it's worth it.
