  1. Goodness gracious – Aruba looks like actual heaven! My favourite place in the world is Amsterdam. It hold so many fond memories for me and every time I go back I fall in love with the city all over again.

    Hope you’ve had an amazing time


  2. I am so jealous. I LOVE Aruba. It is absolutely my favorite place ever! My husband and I own a timeshare there and we’ll be there in October .. CAN’T WAIT!!!! :-)

    • Congrats on your timeshare and we’ve owned since 2003 and just love it. Fave place on earth!

      • What are some of your favorite restaurants there? We’ve been to Aruba many times, but we are always looking for new places to go!

      • I cook at home! Wayyyyy tooooo expensive (and time consuming) to eat out. I have no patience for 2-3 hour dinners so I cook :) Plus, I don’t eat meat, fish, chicken, etc. so I just cannot see paying $30 for steamed vegetables :) There are so many places on Palm Beach and they’re always busy and packed but we just don’t go into them! ha!

  3. I’m always so jealous of your Aruba pictures!
    Have a wonderful time!

  4. So…when can I fly over? :D I practically live in the middle of nowhere, this truly looks like paradise. I’d even be willing to swap my beloved pine trees for palms.

  5. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! I can’t believe you took those photos with your phone. Hope you’re having a great time–but I know you are! :)

  6. Ahhhh SO beautiful! Hope you are having the BEST time!

  7. Jealous! Luckily one of my favorite corners of the world- 30a on the gulf coast of Florida- is only a short car ride away.

  8. I spent my summers in Destin Florida growing up. Its so crowded now but in my opinion its the best beach in the USA, besides the ones in Hawaii… It’s my fav corner of the world.

  9. Hey, why don’t you rub it in our face some more?! :P

  10. Omg that’s it – I’m booking a plane ticket to Aruba. Look at that aquamarine water and long stretches of golden sand! This is my idea of heaven. I hope you’re enjoying every single moment, Averie! You deserve the R&R.

  11. Next time, please remember to leave enough room in your suitcase so I can stuff myself in there. :)

  12. Ahhh… I can’t post my favorite corner of the world because I don’t want anyone else to find it. :) Have fun, Averie. As always, your photos of the gorgeous jewel-colored island of Aruba make me want to vacation my FACE OFF!!

  13. Gorgeous, Averie – just gorgeous! I can’t believe how serene and peaceful and perfect it looks. That malibu sunset looks just as perfect. :)

    That gorgeous beach reminds of me of St. Lucia – take me back!

    xoxo my friend

  14. Aruba looks fantastic! I could probably be in heaven almost anywhere in the Caribbean as long as its not too flooded with tourists. Another favorite spot for us is Sedona, AZ. No beach there but still gorgeous.

  15. Wooooooow, this place looks absolutely wonderful!!! I hope you’re having a good time and just so you know, I haven’t forgotten about you and your recipes, I’ve just been busy re-making the ones I had already tried (ie. breads, muffins, pretzels, pizza). My parents are coming to look after my daughter this weekend as I’m going to Eminem’s concert in Ireland! :) :) So, I will be making some of my favourites so that they can try them: the vanilla glazed banana bread, pretzels, lemon bars, muffins and of course pizza (italians always love to have some of their traditional meals while thy’re on vacation :) )! But after this busy week I will go back to try new recipes, I promise :) Have a great day and enjoy the sea :)

  16. I need that Malibu Sunset drink in my life!

  17. Key West is best!
