It looks like an awesome trip (with some really great food)! I've never been before.

That plane looks like it's about to land on the beach! Yikes.

Hope life it treating you and the family great. Happy father's day for hubby.

Enjoy,
xo jj

JJ: I'd never been before either. Saint Martin has the shortest runway on earth; that is why the planes cut it so close.
My MIL is very ill, which is why we all went together on holiday. Soooo, it was bittersweet. Thanks for the well wishes.
I hope your pool hasn't gone down the slope yet; I seriously need to catch up. Cheers. xo d

Don: You are so right about making great memories.

Marian: OMG, you would have loved the shopping! The biggest variety of really good stuff, from Jean Paul Gautier to Cartier.

MM: Watching those planes flying so close was a blast. Soooo....any plans to go back anytime in the near future?

J: You should go. It's really a fast trip from the States.

Lulu said...

Hi HIHIHIHI!!!!! Welcome back! I haven't been around so much either - I just didn't do a cool and nice announcement like you. I've just been so crazy busy.

diane said...

Lulu: If "I need a break" posts were a contest, I'd say we tied. Love you babe.

Some lovely pics, Diane, my fave is the one of your MIL (?) and the moped, I dunno why, it's just a great image ... I hope there are lots of happy memories, of what looks to have been, a wonderful, albeit bittersweet, family holiday for you all.

Lots of love xx

Love the photo of you with braided hair by the pool!

diane said...

Kate: You are very astute about the holiday being bittersweet. That photo of Gretchen is one of my favorites; I love all of the white.

Mel: Thank you. I look quite fit in that one.

Prunella Jones said...

Okay, you've convinced me, I'm ready to go!

Joanna Jenkins said...

Hey Diane, Hope you are having a fun summer. How's Babyzilla?

diane said...

Pru: It looks like a nice time, doesn't it?

JJ: Funny you should ask; she's good. Maybe it's time for an update.
