Bermuda Here I Come

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell & Banker Busch Real Estate


Meet the Empress of the Seas. She will be Charlie's (husband) and I companion for the next week! We set sail on Saturday and are heading to the lovely Island of Bermuda! My first cruise, and I am so excited!

Isn't it funny how we as humans get so excited over experiencing something for the first time! The goosebumps of anticipation on your first day of school.

Soon enough you made a whole new class room of friends and adventures of a lifetime begin to unfold as you live your childhood through the eyes of many first times.

My cheer-leading try outs, the ecstatic joy that I felt when I was picked. Teenage years come and go, and before you know it......

The look of wonder as you stare down at your first child. Now a life of many of their first times begin to make huge impressions on you! Oh look they smiled! Here comes their first tooth! Their first word, Their first step...

I still feel like a child when I experience some of my adventures throughout life. I read somewhere that happiness is not pleasure-----it is victory. Unlike my cruise life sure is a never ending journey, only with some days having a little more of a surprise than others.

         I will be out of the Rain for a week, and miss you all very much. Your task is to be happy!

Hi Diane - oh I'm envious!!  Have a FABULOUS time and come back to tell us all about your week's cruise.  I've never been on a cruise before.  My fiance loves them (former life!) and I can't get up the nerve to go on one.  I've looked at them online, and in brochures, and they just look like so much fun and a really great way to spend some time with someone special.  I'll be looking forward to your posts when you get back....

Enjoy the Empress.  We cruised on her in May to Bermuda and had a wonderful time despite a tropical storm. The waiters were fabulous and really made our meals special during the cruise.  My daughter wants to go back and see her favorite waiter. 

This is the last year that she will in Royal Caribbean's fleet.  She is switching to another cruise line.
