Celebrating a Special Birthday?

I can tell you one thing I have realized in 2009, that is that life is too short! Somehow, life just seems to rush by us. Not enough days in the week, not enough weeks in the month. I always seem to busy to make time for “girlfriend time”.

I have a husband that I love to be around. And I have 5 grown kids that keep me on my toes. But nothing replaces the needed outlet of just “hanging out with the girls”! After my husband , kids and work…I really have to go out of my way to find the time to even have lunch with my friends. But when I do, it is so worth it! Better then an hour spent in therapy!

There is something special about having a dinner, home party or weekend away when it is JUST the Girls! It is relaxing (not having to take anyone into consideration except YOU!)? It is reconnecting (feeling that trust and bond that you can tell your girlfriend , sister or mom ANYTHING!)? Is it just laughter (and there is so much of that around when the Girls Get together)?

I think it is all 3! And it is a great way to celebrate!

Turning 30? 40? 50? even 80!!! Getaway with your girlfriends and have some fun! Hop on a cruise and celebrate! You deserve that time to do what YOU want to do! Be that 11 year old again…stay up all night giggling! Talk about clothes, boys, dreams and George Clooney! When I am away with the girls, that little girls in me comes alive!!

I love my husband, but he would think I was nuts if I just started dancing on my bed! Or singing Sweet Caroline in the middle of dinner! (I know my kids would keep their distance!!) But I do that with the Girls!! We act silly, we dance, we talk, talk, talk! And Laugh, Laugh, Laugh!!

DOn’t take your friendships for granted. There is nothing better then knowing that when you need an ear, or a hug…they are there! When you want to celebrate…they are there!

Celebrate with us!! The Ultimate Girls Slumber Party!

Sea Dream Yacht Cruise

Sea Dream Yacht Club


It’s not Cruising, It’s Yachting!

I have been very fortunate to have sailed the Sea Dream II a few years ago. It truly is a “once in a lifetime” trip. But now I am fortunate enough to do it twice! (As a celebration of my husbands 50th!) I will let you know if it is better the second time around! That is, unless, you join us!! Then you can decide for yourself!

There are not many things that I can recommend without a single doubt, and Sea Dream Yacht Club is one of them! It is like caviar…a luxury to savor. OH! Did I mention that while in Jost Van Dyke, the captain and crew serve you champagne and caviar off of a surfboard IN THE WATER! Yes, another once in a life time event, that I am doing twice!

I have a lot of memories of that first Sea Dream Cruise, and the Champagne and Caviar event in Jost Van Dyke is truly awesome. It is a perfect example of why Sea Dream charges what they charge. Because it is soooo worth it! This ship has so much to offer!

5 Star service – prepare to be spoiled!

5 Star cuisine – Extraordinary cuisine, open seating, room service

Entertainment – intimate entertainment

Fitness Center – All the basics plus training and yoga!

Sea Dream Spa – Treatment selections including Thai therapies

Boutique – Select merchadise for savvy shoppers

Sea Dream Marina – play with water toys off the ships platform

Casino – Small, intimate, Monte Carlo feel

Sea Dream has other unique features too. Balinese bedding on the top deck is a signature of Sea Dream. Relax during the day or lounge in the evenings under the stars while sipping a glass of Pinot Noir.

So we are yachting once again on February 21 for 7 luxurious days in the Caribbean. Because of Sea Dreams 14 foot draft (the amount of ship below the waterline) she is able to stop at islands and ports that other large ships cannot get to. For example, in St Marten, the Sea Dream docks in Marigot (gorgeous little french town) as opposed to the busy port of Phillipsburg on the Dutch side.

AND she stays till midnight, so guests can truly enjoy the islands nightlife. While all the other ships are leaving at 5 pm, Sea Dream guests are just showering for dinner and then getting back off the ship for dancing to a calypso band.

We will be sailing from Antigua to San Juan. In between we will be visiting the intimate ports of :

Nevis – A true South pacific feel, gorgeous volcanic island

Saba – a Scuba / snorkelers dream!

St Barths – Quaint French island full of charm and glitz

St Marten – French / Dutch island with fabulous Orient Beach

Anguilla –Sugary white sand beaches with amazing turqouise water

Jost Van Dyke – Sip champagne and Caviar on this British Virgin Isle

San Juan – disembarkation

Pricing starts at $ 3999 per person. And remember the old adage “You get what you pay for”! On Sea Dream you get more!

Still undecided?

Celebrating something special?

Birthday? Anniversary? Life?!!

This is the Ultimate way to do it!
