A Turks & Caicos, Bahamas Kind of Summer

Although I didn't get to swim in the beautiful beach waters as much as I had hoped, I had a full summer. From weddings, to islands, a cruise, beaches, new family, new business ventures, visiting those I haven't seen in years, cakes, cupcakes and more cupcakes....

My aunt got married this summer on the Carnival Cruise. After the ceremony, those sailing stayed aboard and enjoyed a cruise to the Grand Bahamas, Freeport and Turks and Caicos. I've always wanted to visit Turks and Caicos! The beautiful blue waters, the tropical fish swimming to shore, the pale pinkish sand, ugh I could have stayed forever. Honestly, coming from paradise back to the East Coast and watching the waters go from bright blue to grimey gray was a little depressing, but that just means I have to go back. I also got to spend a week in Virginia Beach which was an awesome unexpected get-away with my little sister. I got to see my aunt and cousin for the first time in almost a decade and meet my two beautiful baby cousins. If you are following me on Instagram, you've probably seen some of my summer pictures. But, for those of you who haven't done so yet, I thought I'd share some cool pictures with you guys.
