Alright, ya’ll. I’m not sure why I’ve been keeping it under my hat, but I suppose I’ve had a LOT of work lately and I haven’t been able to really concentrate on my upcoming fun (which is still technically work, but whatevs…). But now I’m on a plane, and the first rule of being on a plane?
Today, I’m headed to a part of the Caribbean that I’ve never been to before – Turks and Caicos – home to a Beaches Family Resort where I will be spending a few days with my awesome Mom at the Social Media on the Sand Conference. I’ll be tweaking my social media skills with some top bloggers (how did I get invited?!?! Shhh…. I’ll just roll with it before anyone notices!!!) while I stick my toes into some white Caribbean Sand.
When I was little, my Mom and Nana went on so many trip together. London, Australia, Hawaii and recently, the Baltic Island and Antarctica. This marks my very first trip with only my Mom, and I’m pretty stoked about it. Sure will make for an epic Mommy and Me Monday post!
But besides all the fun and media action, there’s some social good on the trip. The Sandals Foundation (yes, like the couple’s resorts) is doing some good and I want to share their work. They have built a few schools for children in need in the Caribbean, and they have asked us to bring as many school supplies and backpacks as we can cram into our suitcases. I brought TWO suitcases, one with supplies!! The Sandals Foundation is 100% non-profit, since it’s funded by the Sandals and Beaches Resorts – that means EVERYTHING you donate goes to the schools. Karen of In the Kitchen with KP did better than I ever could at explaining the Sandals Foundation and all the good that it does!
And the other awsome bloggers that are going with me? Check out Julie, of Balancing Mama as she wrote a fabulous little post about leaving her little one to get herself some R&R and fun at beaches! Maria of Mamalicious Maria shares her sentiment about going kid-less on her trip with her husband!
I’m super excited, so follow #BeachesMoms on all social outlets to keep up with the fun, or follow me on Instagram.
