One of the best things about travel is the new experience. This Thanksgiving we went to visit my husbands family in New Jersey and my husband decided that we should go to the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade. I had never been to that parade but I did grow up watching the Hollywood Christmas parade march down Hollywood Boulevard, and it was always a treat.
My husband was able to secure us spots front row and I was able to re-experience all the excitement and feelings I had as a child watching the Christmas Parade in Hollywood.
We also brought our two boys and of course there is nothing better in this life than embarrassing an 11 year old boy, so I did plenty of yelling and cheering.
On the day prior to the parade we went to the Big Apple Circus which was amazing; beautiful visually, as well as exciting!
After the circus we had roasted nuts from a street vendor and went to see the department store Christmas windows.
It was a great trip and entirely what you would want to do when visiting Manhattan with your children!
My Husband just turned 40 and his wish was to go to a private resort where he could walk out from our room to the beach. Wish granted!
Kamalame Cay (Ka-MAL-a-MEE Kee) in the Bahamas is just off Andros Island (which strangely enough has an International Airport for charter flights), and is beautiful. The environment, is beautiful, the staff are friendly and eager to please.
The food is delicious and fresh, and Samson who runs the dining room is charming and chipper at all times. The housekeepers kept us well supplied and were like ghosts, who came only when we were away it seemed.
There was a breakfast basket delivered every morning to our door, and cookies every afternoon. We hardly saw another soul and since wifi was only in the office we were able to unplug and reconnect with nature and one another.
I can’t wait to go back and bring my boys. I imagine them perpetually in their swim suits, beach combing and snorkeling.
It is a slice of heaven.
On one of our excursions we went to a Batik factory on Andros Island – if you arrange it ahead of time you can even print your own design!
Our last day there and this was the sunrise we were awakened by.
We work hard in this life, the purpose of which sometimes gets lost. My purpose is to experience beauty in all its forms and to make sure that others see, feel and appreciate beauty as well. It can only enrich you and make you a better person. Take some time out and find beauty in your environment, without your phone or computer. Breathe in the quiet.
Hello Friends, Fellow Designers and Design Junkies!
I have decided to give our blog a renovation. Over the last several weeks we have started to clean house and began to look at what we want to present to you as we move forward. Rather than try to come up with constant content that is meaningless we decided to post less, but make it more personal, at least to us here at Michelle Workman Interiors.
Expect to see posts that are more about my travels, and what I am currently working on, fun with fashion, and market posts. We won’t be doing any more product posts, or general posts about design or fashion. It will all be about what is happening here and what is exciting to us here at Michelle Workman Interiors – no more content for contents sake. I hope you will enjoy it!
coming soon is a post about a recent trip to the Bahamas!
