    Default When things turn around.....

    When things start to turn around the smile returns and your heart skips a beat to silly little things..... I've been away from CSA for a few years, not by choice but by life. I sat at my computer and up comes an instant message from a Jamaican face I've known for 9 years...Mr Fabulous! Ohhhh.....I miss Jamaica. So all of a sudden I have reggae playing and I'm wondering how I can go home. I start planting the seed to my old picture of CSA as our computer desktop background, just a little tug at the heartstrings. Maybe a peice of paper left on his desk with a quote to take us home. I start saying things like "Maybe we should take a walk if we want to look good on the beach"! Next comes an email from a message board friend saying they have money down and want us to meet them again. He tells me how his sweet little wife walks by a picture of my husband and I and almost cries cause she can't imagine her beach buddies not being there. Ohhhhh.....I miss Jamaica. I play a song and have the hubby come listen to it, I can see his smile start to turn, no worries now...just adding a little fuel to the fire.
    His face softens and I can see it in his smile "Ok babe....I hear ya. Lets go home"! Next thing I know we're asking for Vacation time at work and picking out dates. I can just see the mountainside now....a thick cloud of steamy mist as afternoon liquid sunshine mixes with June heat, the smell of the coffee Rose tree through the plantation shutters. Ohhhhh....I miss Jamaica. The perfect blend of tree frogs, waves kissing the shore and soft breezes through the palms. Life turned and brought back to all that we love.

    As my hubby said to me...."Ok Jamaica. I hear ya...we're coming home"! Dirtleg...we'll see ya the beach!!!

    Yes indeed, see you guys at the beach!

    I love the beach. Have I mentioned that lately?

    Now all we have to do is figure out how many fridays or tuesdays or whatevers to count down.

    Welcome home Rrrrrrrrr!

    Lucky you!!!! We definitely missed Mr Fabulous at CSA last time we were there! Hopefully you can meet up with him!!! We keep missing him!
    Have a fantastic time, when are you guys going this year? We didn't make it this year and it was so sad when our normal week came and went without Jamaica!
    Have a great time!

    Alex is doing well...chatted with him just the other night. He's looking into working at Rose Hall with Nadia. The new faces at CSA will also become memories for us, there is always someone who stands out and becomes your friends. We'll go home in June for our Anniversary. It's so very cool....this will be our Wall of Fame trip.

    We love living here! Having palm trees in my yard has helped a little with us missing the Island. I'll even take that 117 heat over cold and snow anyday!!!
