A good day

A good day indeed.
Jason and I are in Florida for one of his best friend's weddings this weekend. We decided to come down a few days early and make it a mini vacation. Good choice.
We spent yesterday and today in Jacksonville Beach, a super cute town right on the coast (if you didn't figure that out by the name of the town). I love the ocean, I love water in general. I pretty much think I would live in our tiny house in Saint Paul as long as it takes to save up enough money to live on a lake for our next house. That would be great motivation to save up! Every time we go somewhere near the ocean we talk about what it would be like to be able to have a vacation home in Florida or somewhere on the ocean's so fun to imagine!
We rented a car yesterday to get to our hotel and decided at the last minute we should get a convertible. Great choice. We got up today, ate a quick breakfast/lunch....(yeah we slept in that late) and drove to the beach. It was so pretty and nice to just take a walk and have no where we need to be. After that we decided to get on the A1A (which goes along the coast all the way to Miami and beyond I believe) and just drive for awhile. We ended up making it all the way to St. Augustine where we spent one week over the fourth of July a few years back. It's such an awesome place. I would highly recommend anyone going there.
Basically, days that end up awesome when you had no plans to begin with are my absolute favorite. Those are the days you remember...
Here are a few pictures from today. Tomorrow we are headed up to Jekyll Island, Georgia for the weekend of wedding festivities. Should be a great time. I am so looking forward to seeing my sister-in-law and brother-in-law who are also coming up for the wedding : )
Oh and one last thing...shout out to Jason (any myself) for successfully making it to the hotel gym today for an actual workout during a vacation. That may have never happened before. Vacations aren't for working out in our life generally...but damn it felt good! Go us! Haha : )

there are some serious waves going on right now...lots of surfers out today!

Cute little birdy couple...

oh Jasey....

ahh nothing to do, nowhere we need to be!

heading down the A1A toward St. Augustine

later, heading back to Jacksonville Beach

ahh kinda wish we had a convertible now!
 Hope everyone is having a great week so far : )


  1. It's so nice that you two enjoy just being together! It's been TOO many years, but I still remember St.Augastine as being a really special place. My family (if you can believe it) used to camp on the beach south of there! I hear there are lots of condos there now (sad!).

  2. Thanks Peggy : )
    You guys should go back to St.'s such a great place! It's definitely busy in some places but still peaceful in others.
