Grenada

Island Girl Since:

December 2015

Originally Hails From:

United States

Candi’s home rock is Grenada, West Indies, Grenada became “home” in December 2015, but she has been traveling here for 28 years, falling further and further in love with the island and its wonderful people.

In what feels like a past life, Candi worked in IT for companies like Siemens and Microsoft but has changed her crazy, high pressure life for a crazy, low pressure life and is loving it. With her husband, she tried to build and open a small villa resort on Grenada but finally just jumped and bought a home in lovely Lance aux Epines where she spends her time renovating her home, blogging at Candi and Michael on the Move, making jewelry, and being a godmother to an incredible 9 year old girl. When she’s not on-island, she is traveling to places she has always wanted to visit.

When my husband and I decided to uproot our family from Kentucky- from the only place, people, and life we have ever known- and move to a tiny island in the Caribbean, it was of course met with so many remarks to the tune of "Oh My Gosh, THAT'S AMAZING!", "You are...
