6 Months of Silence

One of the largest points of self realization that I have come to accept is that I sometimes bite off more than I can chew. What sometimes seems like a minor side project, or a great idea, turns into a time suck that eventually falls by the wayside to be abandoned when priorities change.

At the end of the day, I am not a full time blogger.  Hell, I am not even a part time blogger.  Yes, I have a blog, but not always the time to update it.  Just look at some of my past blog posts.  I was gangbusters for a good 6 months, maybe even 8 months.  Then I had to find a real job in my career field.

Photo Tour of Boston’s Fenway Park

Boston is one of our country’s oldest and most storied cities and there is never a shortage of things to do, see or experience while visiting Boston.

One of the things that you MUST do while visiting Boston, (and this goes without saying for pretty much any sports fan) is visit Fenway Park, home of the Red Sox.  For me, it was the opportunity to cross an item off my bucket list. Read more “Photo Tour of Boston’s Fenway Park”

10 Epic Days.

What do you get when you combine the most beautiful beaches in the world with 62 of your best rum-indulging friends?

A 10 day party of epic proportions.

If you haven’t been following along with our Twitter or Facebook feeds, you (somehow) missed that Team Cocktail and JustinHamlin.com teamed up (ok, i paid and went along, just like everyone else) for an amazing 7 day cruise of the south Caribbean, filled with amazing excursions, impromptu parties and some of the best friends you will ever meet.

A Belated Honeymoon Wish

As anyone who frequents the blog (both of you!) might know, Juliet and I were married in September, 2010 in Huntington Beach, California.  Since then, life has been a roller coaster, complete with a move to New York, an Epic Road Trip, quitting my job and loads of other adventures.

When we look back on our wedding, we have nothing but fond memories.  The only thing we would do differently (if given the chance to do it all over again) is to embark on a honeymoon after the wedding.

But good news, you can help us go on one!

(and I don’t mean by paying for it!)

Recently, our friend Ryan of Rum Shop Ryan fame won a Marriott Resorts Beach Blogger contest and spent 5 days on St. Kitts, exploring, drinking and occasionally, blogging.  It was from Ryan’s blog that I found out about a great contest that is a follow up to the wildly successful Beach Blogger contest, this one dubbed “Resort to Romance”.  A contest to sponsor a few bloggers/Marriott fans/travel lovers for a romantic getaway in the Caribbean.

Well, Juliet and I have entered in hopes of winning a great getaway as a belated honeymoon for us to one of the Marriott Resorts amazing Mexican and Caribbean Resorts!  One of the main criteria for judging is the amount of votes received, and currently we are up against 72 other couples.

If you could spare a few moments to “Like” the Marriott Resorts Caribbean and Mexico Facebook Page, and then click on our link to vote for us in their Resort to Romance contest section, we would greatly appreciate it, as the voting for this first round goes through July 31st!

You can vote once per day, so if possible, please send out a vote each day from here through the 31st!

Thanks again for all of your support and hopefully Juliet and I will be the next Marriott Resorts Beach Bloggers!

Cheers!
