Welcome to St. Kitts Happens! Some of you may know me, others may not, but I am the original creator and blogger for Island Babble, a popular blog designed to inform everyone of all the activities going on before they happened on St. Kitts - what seemed like a first for the island. It's been a long 4 years since I left St. Kitts, and it sure feels good to be back.
Like many others, it seems I just can't quit St. Kitts! Originally from the U.S., my husband and I spent 3 years sailing to over 30 islands in the Eastern Caribbean, and from the first moment we stepped foot on St. Kitts, we knew we'd found "the one." A hiccup forced us to leave 4 years later, but St. Kitts couldn't get rid of us so easily.
Why St. Kitts? Well, speaking for myself, It's not that I dislike the other places. I liken each one to that friend you always try to fix your other friends up with. That friend who is "Perfect!" ...for someone else. Why not you? Shrug. The chemistry's just not there. St. Kitts and I have chemistry.
So I'm back. I'm hoping to showcase what St. Kitts has to offer, from its interesting people, to its unique sites, to its fun events that pop up. Once again, I'll try to keep us in the loop so we can attend things and not find out about what we missed afterwards.
Yes, the island has some blemishes - who doesn't? While I'm not going to sugarcoat them, I'm not going to dwell on them either. After living or visiting many places over my lifetime, I know where I want to be, and I'm glad to be there again.
Many of you feel the same way. Whether you're on island or off, I hope you'll subscribe to the blog, come back to the website often, and recommend it to others. Many things that happen on the islands are only relayed through word of mouth; St. Kitts Happens is designed to be that mouthpiece.
Any of you businesses feeling left out, be sure to contact me. I hope you readers will send in photos, stories or story ideas, and comment often. This site is for all of us.
So let's see what's been going on since I've been gone...
