Thriving naturally as the “B” of the ABC islands, with select direct flights and just two stoplights on island, Bonaire remains refreshingly less developed than its neighbors, Aruba and Curacao. Located on the island’s four-acre, private peninsula within an exclusive beachfront enclave — 86 miles east of Aruba (50 miles north of Venezuela and 30 miles east of Curacao), outside the hurricane zone — lies the Caribbean’s “best kept secret” and Bonaire’s only five star resort, Harbour Village Beach Club, a member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World.
Odds are this Valentines Day you received flowers from someone special in your life, this holiday alone see flowers rake in about $1.9 billion! With those flowers typically comes a vase, so what do you do with that vase when you are done, put it in a cabinet to collect dust until you receive more flowers, or do you up-cycle them to use them as a centerpiece in a different room of the house?

Woke up this morning feel great, feeling good. The baby slept 15 minutes shy of a whole 6 hours and I felt refreshed. I brought her into bed with us and got up to quickly have a shower (I haven’t had a morning shower in MONTHS) before my husband took our oldest to school. I got dressed, I put on makeup, this day is AWESOME. I have my sh*t together. Look at me! I can do this! This rocks!!!!!

It seems as if the modern world is designed to drive families apart. We are constantly plugged in to the world but unplugged from each other.
