I’m frustrated with my vision. Well… not exactly my vision. It could be better but I’m frustrated with the crap that comes along with requiring vision correction.

For me, vision care does the wobbly dance on the line between my vision insurance and my health insurance for coverage. Thanks to type 1 diabetes I have to get a dilated eye exam each year from an ophthalmologist. Part of which includes a regular vision exam.

For our birthdays, Brad and I took a much-needed vacation… a Western Caribbean cruise.
This was cruise number six for us. It was originally supposed to be a couples’ winter escape. Our decision to take this trip was actually made while sitting in a winery in Madison with our friends in November. Tickets were booked and we were planning our escape when our friends found out that they are expecting (yay!). They weighed the risks and decided to do what is best for them and their baby and cancelled the trip. Every place on our travel itinerary had a CDC travel warning about Zika for pregnant women. Whenever you travel, double check no only the security warnings about your destination, but also the health warnings.
So Brad and I went by ourselves. It was incredible and relaxing. It was nice to get away from winter for a little while. I have a few pictures from our trip to share with you. Enjoy!
