Happy almost September! I can’t believe that I am really typing it. Everyone knows how much I LOVE Summer and Summer travel. But truth be told, as the nights are getting darker earlier and earlier, I am ready for cooler weather.
Yes, you read that right! This lady is ready for all things Fall! I am ready to turn off the air conditioning and have the window open at night. I am ready for crisp evenings and Fall decorating.

Yesterday we took my oldest back to school for his senior year in college. I still can’t believe that I am even typing that, but here we are. He is in an off-campus university housing center, which has all the perks of being maintained by the university, but still having that sense of being on your own.
Because of where he is at, he also took one of our cars to school with him. I will admit, it was something that I wasn’t sure I was ready for, but he has proven himself to be a very responsible adult since he got his driver’s license. I will just have to have faith and trust that he will be okay.
Now I am getting ready for our next travel adventure. We are headed back to Jamaica at the end of September for a short stay. We are headed to the new Sandal’s Dunn’s River and will be staying in a butler suite for the first time. I totally can’t wait!
Speaking of Sandals Resorts, we were at Sandals Royal Barbados in July 2023 and had a wonderful time. Barbados is a beautiful country, and we had a wonderful time!
I can’t wait to go back in the future! Although this time we will fly out of Charlotte instead of Miami. We had such a nightmare coming home when we flew into Miami that I will do what I can to avoid it whenever possible.
One of things I am looking forward to is my favorite lunch of jerk chicken and rum punch. I just think that rum punch on the island tastes so amazing. I have managed to make a rum punch recipe that is a wonderful substitute for the real thing.
Want to try it yourself? Just click on the picture below and it will take you to this easy rum punch recipe you can make at home.
Well, that is my update for this week. I need to head off and get ready for work. I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday. Until next time!
