Greece, Love & Happiness

There are some places in this world that just stick with you long after you leave. I knew by my first full day, Mykonos would be one of those special spots I will remember vividly forever.

I could hardly sit still through breakfast, I was so excited to scurry down to the beach like a little crab. Agios Stefanos is a sandy local beach with crystal clear shallow water, perfect for wading and snorkeling.

When our tummies started to rumble, we didn’t have to go far – we just breezed into the beachside grill and ordered up a plate of barbecued sardines, and one mean salad – pomegranate, pinenuts, sun-dried tomatoes, and big squidgy chunks of Greek cheese.

At the end of the day, with our swimsuits hung out to dry, we scrubbed up, dressed in our dinner clothes and headed up to our private rooftop to watch the sun set. As the sun dipped down behind the end of the island, champagne was popped – and so was a big question!

How can a little box hold so much happiness?

Over dinner, we laughed and gasped and sighed, and celebrated our engagement.  Our candlelit table for two overlooking the sunset was the most amazing place to dine on three courses served to us right there on our private rooftop.

I think it was the happiest sunset I ever saw.
