6th Anniversary

What an absolute delicious time we had in Florida!! I can hardly believe we've been home almost 3 weeks already! Time seemed to crawl down there, but when it's back to reality, there are barely enough hours in each day...or so it seems! The place we stayed at was so beautiful. It felt just like home, it was very clean, organized, elegant and cozy. The bathroom walls had this great finish, it gave it a very Tuscan feel.
This was my favorite piece of art in the house,
"It'll cost nothing to dream, & everything not to."
The view from my morning cup of coffee....bliss.
On our Anniversary we went to our favorite French restaurant down there, we've visited this area before and really liked this place.
I found a rose, a lovely card and some chocolates on my pillow!
He's so thoughtful! I love him more then ever... I decided to open the card he gave me while we watched the sun setting. We sat out there reading, writing, talking & napping until we couldn't see anymore.
A few days we would hop in our great car,
put the top down and turn up Frank Sinatra
and just drive.... Our neighboring town was called "Seaside," and it was just the cutest town around.
We spent several days there, just wondering around, shopping, relaxing at the bookstore,
eating ice cream and just being together. If you've ever seen "The Truman Show", it's this
town that it was filmed in.

Great outdoor shops. The cutest grocery store ever.

This was another little town we drove through, these houses just whispered, "peace."
This house on the other hand, shouted, "too much!" This is supposedly
Paris Hilton's new home, built to be an exact replica of her yacht!

Here's another outdoor shopping area where we spent 1/2 our day.
We found some cute little gifts for Tyler & Luke here.

Loved this.
On our final day Hurricane Ike came to our doorstep, literally!
This is what we woke up to! We were fascinated and yet thankful to be leaving
at the same time.

We were so grateful for our time away. A week did get long though, being away from the boys. I missed them a lot by Wednesday night! I even asked Jake if we could change our plane tickets, but he would have none of that!!! The boys adjusted quite well to our return, it was Mama who had the trouble adjusting to reality!! All I wanted to do was nap and eat, basically a continuation of our vacation!

This was an especially delightful trip because it's easy to forget
what it feels like to be alone for long periods of time with the love of your life.

"Sail away with my honey,
I put my heart in your hands,
Sail away with me honey now, now, now
Sail away with me, what will be will be,
I wanna hold you now..."
