retreating in harbour island…



Hi friends! I'm spending the week on an escape/fitness retreat with Lithe Method in Harbour Island, Bahamas…enjoying amazing workouts, fresh local food, and pure relaxation. I haven't been on vacation for this long since my honeymoon 5 years ago so this is the most relaxing I've done in years! Baby Cho in my belly seems to be enjoying the R&R, too. I began to feel he/she moving around more this week with tiny flutters in my belly! I wanted share some photos from the island and the house we're staying at. Designed by India Hicks, I love the collected world traveler feel of the house mixed in with a bit of British/Southern comfort. Also, it's so fun to hang with my friend and fellow mama-in-the-making, Lauren! Stay tuned for a food post from the Bahamas later this week! — Joy

  1. The island looks gorgeous! I always adore India Hicks design (since her crabtree evelyn collection range). Can’t wait to see photos of the house.

  2. I love love love your happiness in this photo Joy! Laugh & live it up. You sure do deserve this beautiful treat! Keep well and thanks for sharing!

  3. I love your simple black dress! I’ve been looking for something easy that I can just thrown on for those lazy days but still look chic at the same time. Where did you get it? (I’m assuming it’s not maternity wear!)

  4. Hi Sheila,
    Thank you! My husband gave me the dress as a gift. Its Alexander Wang from Barneys Co-Op. And its regular, not maternity 😉

  5. Joy, im happy to hear about your vacation. the beach looks so gorgeous and the house too!
    ps, didnt know you’re on the way, Congratulations soon-to-be mama:)

  6. Oh wow! I haven’t been checking up on my regular reads for the past weeks, and did not know you were expecting. My due date was close to yours (10/23/08) ‘cept he decided to come out earlier.
    Anyways, just wanted to say congrats!

  7. Looks like a wonderful vacation, just what every pregnant woman should have. As a new mom, believe me you will be glad you had a vacation before your new bundle of joy arrives.
    Congrats to you both….
