Turks and Caicos

Sharing about my surprise birthday trip back to one of my favorite places in the world, Turks & Caicos. My husband planned the entire thing as a gift for my recent BIG birthday (cough-40th-cough), proving that I want to turn 40 every year from here on out if I get to go back to one of the most amazing islands of the Caribbean!

I love these! It was so hard to think of great ideas for my one year old's Easter Basket. We decided on some bubbles, books, and a small toy this year. And no fake grass! It's the glitter of Holiday decorations!

Introduction
I'm Carrie, and I spend my days trying to stay afloat as a mom of 2 while creating a lifestyle and home that fit our family.  DIY projects, easy & healthy recipes, activities for kids, and personal home decor ideas are my passions, and I love sharing them on my blog-- Making Lemonade.  My daughter and I are also survivors of an undiagnosed vasa previa during labor.  In fact, she's the one who turned my sour lemons into sweet lemonade.  :-) 

So pull up a chair, grab a glass, and let's share some lemonade!
