Whew! I’m a half-century old! How the hell did that happen so soon? I knew it was coming. I even planned for it. But… Damn! I’m 50 years old! So…. what now?
Well, I made sure I had planned an awesome vacation to Jamaica. I arrived three days after my birthday to spend five days relaxing in the sun and sand. This was the best decision I made this summer! I share my birthday with my mom and brother (she’s the same day and he’s the day before). So, I didn’t experience my “Own Special Day” until I passed 18. Now, if I want to be special, I need to plan it.
So, back to Jamaica! We stayed at the Grand Palladium, Lady Hamilton Resort in Lucea, Montego Bay. It was gorgeous! The pools, the beaches, and even my room were dreamy! The food was amazing! However, the best part–it was the most relaxed I’ve felt in a long time.
I even managed to relax in spite of my health issue with my blood thinner (that’s a separate story). I’m just thankful that I made it to 50, and that I was able to enjoy this milestone in Jamaica.
