Shopping at The Nassau Straw Market | Bahamas

Nassau Bahamas
Although the weather today isn’t that bad (and it’s not suppose to snow again until Christmas, although I’ll already be in Paris by then), yesterday was one of the coldest days in Chicago in December thus far! At one point yesterday, thanks to the wind, it felt like -15 degrees in parts of the city. In fact, in the 10 minutes it took to shovel the snow in front of my house, my entire hands almost froze completely (and I was wearing THICK gloves!). I’m so happy that it’s going to be in the high 40s/low 50s while I’m in Paris later this week/during the holidays! All this chilly weather instantly brought me back to last month when I was sipping daiquiris and sitting poolside in the Bahamas! If you’ve checked out some of my other cruise posts then you’ll know that during my Carnival cruise, I got to spend two (wonderful) days in Nassau. I spent the first day really exploring and getting to know the island and I spent the second day exploring Atlantis Paradise Island Resort (you can check that out HERE!). Continue reading

Atlantis Paradise Island Resort
Happy Friday (aka Gilmore Girls Revival Day. Raise your hand if you’re also spending the day watching Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life. UPDATE: I just finished watching the Gilmore Girls revival and it was AMAZING! I truly loved every second of it). One of my favorite things about Thanksgiving is getting to spend time with my family and catch up with/hear about all of the wonderful things that my loved ones have been up to lately. I found myself spending a majority of yesterday sharing with my family and loved ones lots of details about the trip I took to the Bahamas earlier this month (I’m still having a “pinch me” moment about that trip!). So, I decided to share a little bit more about my trip to the Bahamas (and Carnival Cruise) here on the blog as well (you can check out my two previous cruise posts HERE). During my Carnival cruise, I got to spend two (wonderful) days in Nassau. I spent the first day really exploring and getting to know the island (I’ll share more about that in a later post) and I spent the second day exploring Atlantis Paradise Island Resort!
