Some of you may know that I recently returned home to Canada from the sunny South. This little vacation was one for the books, and I am so glad that my best friend was there to experience it all with me.

While this post is really dedicated to sharing some photos from my vacation, I feel it is necessary to say that this vacation would not have been possible without my network marketing business. If I was still working for my office job, I would have had to have taken unpaid time off of work and I would have most likely come home wondering where my finances were at. Thus feeling stressed rather than relaxed after a week away.

Luckily, this adventure was different. I didn’t have to take any time off of work! I was able to post, communicate, and answer questions on the go, thanks to a good WiFi connection and my trusty iPhone. Not only did my team GROW while I was away (honestly my team is so amazing), I also received a paycheque while on vacation that I was able to directly deposit into my account.

Now, let me tell you what I believe to be a true lifestyle vacation. It is a vacation that is possible because of time and financial freedom, which creates the perfect environment for relaxation.

As someone who has never had a lifestyled vacation before, this was a true blessing. Network marketing continues to change my life for the better and I cannot wait to see where my team goes from here. Next week, bigger and better things will be coming to the blog, but for now, here are some pictures from our lifestyled vacation.

Yours truly,

Our first stop was to Bubba Gump Shrimp Co.  for lunch. We enjoyed a delicious meal and I even tried some of Andrew’s seafood…surprisingly I LOVED it!

The rest of the afternoon we hung out on the beach and we dabbled in some 2-4-1 Margarita’s at St Barts Cafe. For those of you who may be wondering…I was not able to finish my drink. I think there was enough tequila in there to sedate a whale!

After that we enjoyed the first sunset from our beautiful hotel room. Overall, I was really impressed with our room, the staff, and food at the hotel and I would recommend it to anyone thinking about staying in Fort Lauderdale. The inner-coastal waterway and the beach were literally just steps away from the front doors of the Bahia Mar.

While we did a few different excursions, one of my favourites was visiting the Everglades, Holiday Park to check out the alligators. I have some great footage from that day but I’ll be saving it for our GoPro video. Here is a photo of Andrew and I that was taken on the fan boat. It was my first time ever on one!

More than halfway through the trip, we traveled via water taxi to Hollywood Beach.

Our main destination once there was Margaritaville, and it did not disappoint. Not only did this resort take up an entire block, it was also beautiful and fully equipped with a wave runner pool.

On our last night in Fort Lauderdale, Andrew took me out for dinner at 15th Street Fisheries and we had an amazing meal. We took a water taxi to the restaurant which was located on the inner coastal waterway and when we arrived we discovered large fish swimming below the restaurant. There were actually glass panels inside on the restaurant floor which allowed you to see the fish below. It was a really neat experience. We both agreed that that was one of our favourite dinners.

On our last day before coming home we went on a little adventure to Las Olas Boulevard and discovered an amazing authentic Italian restaurant, Louie Bossi.  From the drinks to the food this place had it all. We even got to experience the wonders of eating outdoors when a little lizard decided to join us. This was by far my favourite meal and I hope one day we can make it back here to enjoy some more good food and locally brewed coconut beer!

Now I am back “working” from home and loving every minute of it!
