WPC=Wedding Planning Certification! We were in Houston leaving for our trip to the Caribbean when I saw these 2 women sitting with bags that had "Designer Destination Weddings" written on them. I thought to myself and, what a fabulous job. I said to Eric, "I would love to be a wedding planner." He agreed that it would be a wonderful experience. When we reached St. Thomas, we went to a beach known as Magen's Bay. While sitting there, a wedding planner was setting up on the we noticed the groom and then the family and then the bride. I had a rush come over me and realized I needed to investigate a new career in wedding planning. When we arrived home, I immediately searched on the internet different ways to become certified in the wedding industry. I have found my class and am going to enroll this weekend. I am not sure how long the whole certification will take me, but I have enough downtime to hustle. This will be a new and exciting journey for both Eric and I!

12 Days of Bliss!

Eric and I were blessed and fortunate to be able to take a 12 day hiatus to the Carribean. Our trip was AMAZING! Everything was perfectly planned before we got there and we had no worries. The USVIs are beautiful and feel like home. I know most people don't understand it, but I have traveled to many many places and I never feel a deep connection; I feel a deep connection to the USVIs. The people, the attitude, the beaches, the economy, the work ethic, the food, and the list goes on and on. While on the islands, Eric and I had many "epiphanies" about our lives today and our future. Our new motto is...~POSITIVE is How I Live~I hope to have many returning trips to this magical place or even a new home there!
