Three problems:

1. I'm SUPER scared of flying and even more scared of flying overwater (drowning) and we are going to a tiny looking island out in the middle of the sea....hmmmm....
2. I hate bugs, mosquitos, spiders, snakes, lizards. The Ladera resort is up in the middle of the rainforest with 1 open wall....hmmmm.....I guess we shouldn't turn on the lights after dark?
3. I'm super scared of heights (flying??). The Ladera resort is up in the mountains practically hanging off the side of a cliff....hmmmmm.........Interesting.

I guess we'll see how this goes! Did somebody say....cocktail(S)?

St. Lucia... *sigh*

We were going to stay at Ladera but FI could not get over the "openness". Said he felt like people would be watching us all the time! He said if we could see the trees then someone might be up in one taping us! Oh, well. Was my first choice though! Have fun!

Wow looks absolutely beautiful!!! Can't wait to see pics when you get back!! :)


you are going to a great spot for your honeymoon.....St. Lucia is beautiful and I guarantee you'll be even more blown away when you get there.

I must laugh at you problem list though you're too funny....St. Lucia is tiny but not enough for you to fall off the island and drown. You'll have a great honeymoon and Ladera is amazing.

BTW we are dress look gorgeous in your dress and believe it or not we had the same shoe choices. lol...
