Jamaica. The original #alannaps.
#alannaps began while Alan and I were on the tropical island of Jamaica on a relaxing vacation. It was my goal not to be on social media or electronic devices during our island escape, yet I wanted to give family a update on Facebook that we were safe and enjoying ourselves. I thought a simple one line a day post highlighting each of our top moments would suffice.
Then there was the friendly follow up from friends.
With the next daily update from paradise including what everyone had been secretly waiting for, a photo of Alan napping on the beach.
I don’t know if it was the simplicity or humor of that original post that captured our followers’ hearts, but that post was the dawn of a new era. #alannaps was born.
The trip was a success. We both left the resort relaxed. I got in good food, spa time, and adventure while Alan got a daily nap on the beach. Oh, of course Alan got one last nap in as we left for the airport, too.
