St. Barths was beyond amazing! It’s always a treat to be able to leave N.Y.C. in January when it is so cold and ugly, especially when you get to land on this dream island!
I have been happily married for over twenty years, and I must say that even I was looking forward to having a blast with just the girls. Sometimes you need that time with your girlfriends without children and husbands/significant others.
Sonja and I have a special connection. I can’t explain it, but we click like sisters. We have so much fun together, even when we are doing absolutely nothing. When we have been away before, she always ends up coming into my room to do her makeup, choose outfits to wear, and just chit chat and lounge around. I knew Carole wanted the private bungalow away from everyone (as I'm sure Russ was sneaking in at night!). In the main house they had four bedrooms, and since I knew Sonja would always be in my room, I asked if we could have the largest room. Sonja and I would just share it. My room became "the room" of the villa. Everyone was always hanging in it morning, noon, and night.
I was surprised Russ came the very first night we were there. I must say, he held his own with us. He's very confident and charming. I love his smile and the way his eyes twinkle! He and Carole really make a great match. I made sure to be as prim and proper as I could possibly be when I was introduced to him for the first time. We were all jet lagged when we met him. We had been up since 4am and dinner was our first meal since breakfast!
