Good day, I’m Anna Marie. But most people call me “sparkles.”.
I arrived on Saint John in the autumn of 2010. The effects of the market crash and the unemployment it caused and my home burning to the ground that year launched me on a one-way ticketed adventure to an island I had never been to before.
I fell in love with the community of St John almost before I fell for her beaches. It has been my pleasure to meet so many amazing people living, visiting and traveling on this beautiful island over the years.
Though I intended to stay on St John for only a year, this fall will mark ten years of calling her my home, five years married to my amazing Hubby, whom I met here, and the 2nd birthday of our beautiful son.
St. John has become part of my fabric and I am forever grateful for all she has taught me. I took a leap into the unknown and landed home. I consider myself one of the lucky few to have found love in so many forms here in paradise.
I am SO excited to have this opportunity to share my love for St John, her community and all the beauty that surrounds us with our readers and friends.
