Well, it's certainly been a while. I took my New Year's Resolution seriously and have been trying to be a part of the moment and put the camera down. Every year my family travels to a warm tropical place to escape the brutal Pennsylvania winter. This February we took a trip to St. John, a beautiful U.S. Virgin Island just off the east coast of Puerto Rico. Nine days of sunshine, salt air, laughter, and relaxation were such a welcome treat. It isn't very often I get to spend such an extended amount of time with my family and I enjoyed every minute of it. Maybe not the part where a bird had a vendetta against me and I had to spend the last day of my trip walking around with a broom to ward off any signs of attack, but all in all, it was an amazing trip. Thanks to my wonderful family for one of the best weeks ever, now let's start planning for 2017!
