Girls Beach Trip

Where to begin? I think I've completely lost the ability to blog. I just got back from a beach vacation and I can't seem to put two words together about it.

I have school on the brain and I just can't seem to find the desire to blog. I've even been questioning rather or not to continue blogging. I'm trying to remember why I ever started blogging? I know it is to preserve the memories that Andrew and I make as husband and wife. I enjoy going back and reading through what we were doing this time last year.

Anyways...Last week I had the opportunity to go to Destin, FL with two of my sweet friends. Funny as it may be, I was a little nervous about the trip. This was the first vacation I've ever taken without the husband or my family. I went to church camp once with a friend. I was miserable. I'm such a homebody who gets homesick so easily.

I said goodbye to the husband and we were off.

We had a blast on the beach all week. We spent our days lazing around soaking up the sun and our nights either hanging out at the condo or getting dressed up to go out to dinner. Shopping was of course on our list of activities as well.

I think my favorite thing about the trip was parasailing. I've always wanted to do this so I was thrilled when Amanda asked if we'd be interested. We went Tuesday morning and I must say it was nothing like I expected. The boat is going fairly fast so I just assumed that it would feel like you were going fast in the air. It doesn't. it's like you are just floating up there. It is pretty peaceful and relaxing. I really enjoyed it. And on the way out to wear we parasailed, I saw a dolphin. First one ever. Only wish I had my camera.

On the last two nights we went down to the beach to take some pics. Here are my favs from those two nights.


  1. I am so glad I went with you and Slack on this trip. It was sooo much fun!! Love you both!

  2. I have thought the same thing on blogging, use to do it daily but for some reason have not wanted to do it:( maybe its the heat:) I do love your blog and keeping up with you:)
