My husband and I have been married for over 20 years, and just sent our youngest child off to college. We both have stressful full-time jobs as engineers in the energy industry, and we have to fight the traffic of a big city every day. We're getting close to retirement, so we started looking for a place to retire a few years ago, and decided that St Lucia was the only choice after visiting multiple times. We grew up in the Midwest, and never, ever dreamt that we'd retire in the Caribbean! But we love St Lucia so much, we decided to buy our retirement home a few years early, and share our home, so that you can experience the joy of spending time in St Lucia, too.
