Provo Recap!

Happy Wednesday y'all!

Well, what can I say? I am almost at a loss for words about our trip. When someone asks me how it was all I can do is smile. A big goofy smile. I am instantly transported back to those white pristine sands of Providenciales, Turks and Caicos. The most delicious turquoise waters you have ever seen in your life.  The scrumptious sunsets and climate. The amazing food and fantastic people. Our resort was to die for and the staff were over the moon excited to help.

 I wish I was back there right second.

Let's start off with our resort.... Seven Stars.
 It was amazing. The location was practically in the middle of the island and walking distance to the cutest shops, restaurants and gourmet grocery. We felt so safe walking at night and during the day (other than the crazy right hand drivers). Our travel agent was spot on with his recommendation of Seven Stars. We had a jr ocean front suite, which included a small kitchen and laundry. It was absolutely perfect for our non-all-inclusive trip. I highly recommend this property and would most definitely choose this resort again and again.

The food....oh it was so delicious. Everything was so fresh, clean, vibrant and amazing. We ate at three fancy restaurants, Hemingways, Magnolias and Seven. Magnolias had the most amazing view of Turtle cove and the sunset was simply stunning.

The sand and the sea were breathtaking. What else can I say other than it was the highlight of my trip. I literally spent an entire day out on that white sand....from 8am to 8pm. It was the best day ever.  I have never in my life seen water that color. The pics below do not do it justice.

We made some great friends throughout the week, mostly newlyweds, which was so fun! Reid and I sorta felt like chaperons at one point. We ventured out one day on an amazing catamaran and had the best time with the other two couples. Reid instantly felt a kinship with the two men... I think it was the rum punch talking. Every Thursday night Provo has a local fish fry on the beach (I would compare it to a food truck court around here) where local restaurants and entertainment set up for a night of fun under the stars. The whole island attends - locals and visitors all hanging out like one big happy family. It was a delight to be with such amazing people and culture.

I cannot say enough great things about our trip. I am having a hard time finding words to describe my love for this tiny island. I left feeling happy, at peace, in love, and slightly sad to not wake up to this gorgeous view. I almost cried. I made Reid promise me we would return, soon.

Enjoy the pics, if you get through them all you deserve a cookie. Let me know if you want any more specifics on outfits, outings, food etc!

This was just to the left of the beach at our resort.....isn't it amazing?

How lucky am I .... he is too handsome!


Our catamaran cruise included a trip to a private island, amazing snorkel time, rum punch, and fresh conch cooked to perfection.

Can you believe that we were the only people on this island? It was amazing!

 The captain of the boat pulled this out of the water, grilled it and then we ate it. Conch is not that bad actually! 
These BIG dudes were all over the private island.

This private island was so small that we could walk the entire thing, and we did! One side was the Atlantic ocean and the other was the Caribbean. Our resort was on the Atlantic side, just in case you were wondering.

We spotted this thing swimging in the clear, blue was a giant sting ray......yikes!
 After our outing on the island and catamaran, we were dropped off at a local bar, Sharkys. The boys had a bit too much fun....clearly.

So this was a midsized car on the island.... Reid barely fit!

I think you can tell we just had the most amazing time and I am plotting in my head how to get back there soon. Hmmmm!!! Oh Reid!

I will let this post sink in for a couple days - catch ya Friday loves! 



don't miss one minute of fun ~ follow along!
