Last month, in early October, one of my dear friends got married at the Guy Harvey Outpost Islander Resort in Islamorada, in the Florida Keys. You’ve seen Jess in several of my running posts and if you’ve been reading for a while, you may have even heard us chatting with the Another Mother Runner ladies on their podcast last year. Jess was friends with my husband in college and she’s one of the many wonderful people that came into my life when we got together.
Right around this time nine years ago, this is what I was doing..
Well hello there strangers! It’s been a while. Things have been busy around here and I haven’t had a chance to sit down and write. I’m going to try to catch y’all up on the big things that have been going on now so this may be a little long. I promise lots of pictures and not too much yacking from me though! Ready?
Y’all, my baby cousin got married.
We were in Tampa this weekend for Colleen & Jonathan’s wedding. Since we had most of the day to keep ourselves entertained, we headed to The Florida Aquarium. We were a little let down, it was much smaller than we expected, but Braden had a wonderful time and really, that’s all that matters!
Happy 5 Year Anniversary to us! We’re not doing anything big to celebrate, since it’s Easter weekend, but I thought I should at least mention it! It’s hard to believe that it’s been 5 years, it has FLOWN by. We’ve had such a wonderful first 5 years of marriage, I can’t wait to see what the next 5 have in store for us!
Adam didn’t have to be ready to do the best man thing ’til 2ish, so we spent the morning wandering around and sight-seeing a bit. We were total touristy nerds, but we had a blast. We had breakfast at a little diner just off of Times Square, then headed to the Rockefeller Center to check out the view from the Top of the Rock.
I love weddings. I do. I especially love weddings that are relaxed, laid back and fun. You know, the ones where the bride is smiling the ENTIRE time, even when it starts raining and the DJ has to shut everything down halfway through the reception to move his equipment. Where instead of pouting and going all bridezilla on everone, she gets her friends out on the dance floor and keeps the fun going with or without music.
We headed to Bainbridge today for Daryl & Celia’s wedding – it was absolutely beautiful. I missed most of the ceremony because I was hanging out with Braden, but the reception was just wonderful. She didn’t miss a detail, and the sunset was GORGEOUS. Daryl and Celia could not have asked for a better night. I’m so thrilled for them, congratulations you guys and welcome to the family Celia!
We started off the day hanging out at the hotel.. Braden crawled around and pulled up on everything. He’s a handful and a half now!
