Here it is guys! The final post from my St. Thomas extravaganza! Not gonna lie, flipping through these photos again, brought the memories right back, as I sit in my hot apartment here in Harlem. I can never fully explain how much fun I had in the Virgin Islands, but being able to celebrate my birthday with my closest friend, was the sweetest thing in the world. Hope you enjoy the pics from the Wing Festival, my birthday in St. John, ferry ride pics and a few more beach pics!
Group pic. Stunning view.
Beach view at Magen’s Bay.
Dranks and dancing…
Paul was the first person to wish me happy birthday
Well, I’m back in the city that never sleeps, in desperate need of sleep.
Vacation is officially over, and as I sluggishly finish out my shift and prepare for a writer’s meeting, I wanted to thank any and all friends and followers for their birthday wishes. Spending the day in St. John and returning to a flood of texts, videos and posts was icing on the cake. Once the fog has lifted, expect to see even more picturesque scenes from my trip. Thanks for being a fantastic host Cynthia! Love you!
Red lip, straw hat, window seat. A true #wanderingwednesday! Off to #StThomas for my #birthday #getaway.

Check back each afternoon, starting today #shamelessplug #uptowngal #writer #wordpress #wanderer #travel #CynthiaandMelInStThomas
For today’s “Flashback Friday” I’m taking a look back at April-June. There was a whole lot of traveling in this little chunk of 2014: Philly, Richmond, Washington DC, San Diego, plus I did a show (Messiah Complex), saw a show (Bullets on Broadway) and started rehearsals for another show (A Midsummer Night’s Dream). I celebrated my Aunt Cynthia’s new position as Deputy Attorney General of Virginia, went to a sonogram appointment with Jassmine, supported my friend Jenna on her new web series, treated my cousin to brunch to toast her first PR job in the city, had an amazing reunion with Mississippi folks in town, went to the opera, enjoyed the sun and sand of San Diego, had a Mother/Daughter weekend in DC, and spent quality time with my friends as I rang in my 25th birthday. Enjoy the pictures below, some are old and some have never been published, and of course you can click the month’s in the menu on the left and relive these moments with me!
Hard to believe that it was only two weeks ago when I found myself in Paradise! The Eppes Family Vacation happens every two years on the coast of North Carolina in an area called the Outer Banks (OBX). If you happened to stop by on my week away, you noticed my Instagram feed was filled with sunrises, beach photos, and the like, but not too much of any one thing. That’s because I saved the bulk of my photos for you, my readers!
This first post will feature all of the pictures I managed to take of and with family while away. I hope you enjoy this photo collage, as much as I have enjoyed selecting the photos to post.
