After the wedding, the sun broke through an encroaching cloud and sprayed beams of highlighting on an already glowing scene: sparkling newlyweds and generations of their family members, all of whom had traveled from afar to celebrate love with those they love. Though our tans are fading, our smiles will return after each thought of Caribbean sunshine, powdery white sand, turquoise water, manicured gardens, coastal breezes, Jamaican hospitality, sunset beach gatherings, a perfect wedding, and a little rum cream.
I could go on and on with that list, but I’ll leave it at a simple congratulations to the newlyweds, who will no doubt return to Jamaica to celebrate future anniversaries. Perhaps we’ll return to Jamaica someday, too.
(but until then….where to next? )
