Later that night, we all gathered for our last cruise meal at the fancy restaurant and spent our time enjoying the company and service over our wait-staff. As a final goodbye, the servers in the room performed a choreographed dance at the stairs that was really engaging and was a sweet, thoughtful way to end the night. After dinner, Haley and I walked into the ending of a comedy show and then spent the rest of the night talking and bonding until the early hours of the morning. The nights I’ve spent talking to Fallon and Sullivan, all piled up in my cabin room are one’s I will never forget. When Khloe and Ava came running to my room one night and watched old Disney shows with me, I was so excited that they came to me as their big sister. And having Haley as someone to look up to and talk about life with in the late hours of the night is a dream come true for me. These girls are so incredible and I am beyond blessed to be able to fall in love with them every day. Thank you, thank you, thank you, IJM.
Lessons Of The Day:
- If you see something you really like when you’re traveling, get it. You might not ever have another chance to get it and you’ll be bummed when you miss out. Treat yourself sometimes!
- If you’re really bad at souvenirs or don’t want to overspend, choose something small that is easy to find to get at every place you visit. In my family, we get magnets from everywhere we go, so you can imagine how extensive our magnet shopping was on this trip.
- Know a bit of the language for each of the countries you visit! You feel really cool and gain appreciation for the language.
- Spend time bonding with the people around you. Some of my favorite moments were the late nights with my sister queens where we would just talk and eat pizza in the middle of the night.
- Invest in relationships
