Wow, what a week!
We’re back from our vacation to Florida—well, technically we’ve been back since Saturday, but I’m still getting used to the idea.
After months of planning and anticipating, the whole thing went off without a hitch (I mean, as much as can be expected with two little kiddos) and I couldn’t have asked for a better trip.
The beach house we rented was PERFECT (if anyone’s looking for a place in Ft. Myers Beach, I cannot recommend this company highly enough).
So bright and beachy and cute. And with 3 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms, there was plenty of room for everyone. (Three adults and two kiddos.)
But even better than the inside? The outside.
I knew that having a private pool was going to be awesome, but I had no idea just HOW awesome. It was so nice to be able to bop down there with the kids whenever we wanted and for however long (like, sometimes, 10 minutes), without the hassle of packing up a million kid things. It was also a perfect adult hang-out during nap time (so glad we brought the baby monitor!).
And thanks to the time of year we went, we were able to get all this for the price of a nice hotel room!
I was shocked too.
At first, back when I started researching places to go, I was bummed that by that time, everything was booked out through March. But going to Florida in mid-April ended up being genius—we practically had the place to ourselves! The beaches were quiet, the restaurants were slow, hardly any traffic…it was a dream.
And oh, the beach. I can never get enough.
Another plus about the timing: we ended up being there over my birthday. (The big 3-0!)
I have nothing but positive thoughts about turning 30. I’m anticipating the best decade of my life—20’s are overrated!
Anyway: the fun’s officially over, and we’re all readjusting the Real Life.
Already looking forward to the next trip…
Anyone else gone anywhere fun lately?
Tips for getting over the post-vacation blues??
Have a great week!
