We are so excited to share our travel diary for Saint Lucia! This was such a special trip for us because it was for our 10 year anniversary! I'm gonna get a little sappy here because 10 years?!? Time has flown by and went so slow at the same time, we still can't believe we've been together since we were teenagers but when you know, you know :) We are each others best friend and favorite travel partner (when one of us has a valid passport ;) - more on that in a min!) & for us this is definitely on the top of our travels thus far!
