we celebrated my 29th in the best of circumstances this year. TH totally spoiled me by taking me to the turks and caicos and i am ruined for all future birthdays from here on out. and just for the record, by "TH taking me to the turks and caicos" i mean i begged him nonstop for a trip and basically wore him down until he handed over the credit card. i negotiated by telling him about all the miles we'll earn on his United credit card. kind of worked.
but the bottom line is we had a completely relaxing vacation and i can't recommend this island enough. we stayed in a condo rental with a full kitchen, w/d and screened in porch. we just left our sliding glass doors open all day and let the ceiling fans keep it cool. the ocean was just a 30 second walk from our condo and we couldn't get enough of the stunning turquoise water.
i just about cried when we left and TH was kind enough to suggest that i just move there and visit him on the weekends. i am considering it.
