Our first Anniversary

Ah, the long awaited vacation finally came this past weekend! It was so good just to get away for a few days. To make a long story short, we had a bad turn of events and almost didn't get to go. However, it was all worked out at the last minute. We ended up in a different place, but as long as we were on the beach and together we were perfectly happy. We had quite a few interesting things happen to us. Just let me tell you...

This is the view from our place! We were on the second floor and literally steps from the pretty white sand!
This is the best way to start the morning - with coffee, your well-worn Bible and...
...your stud husband playing a little guitar. :)
After sleeping in, a little breakfast and some serious chilling out, we headed down to enjoy the beautiful outdoors. Jonathan has family in Panama City, so he's been spoiled by this beautiful beach for most of his life. I however have not had such a privelege, so I love it when we come here. The Panama City/ Destin area is just gorgeous.

 This is the life folks! In the background of this picture, you can see some yellow caution tape. They were filming a commercial. You might see us on TV. Just sayin'. Shortly after this picture was taken, a guy almost drowned in the ocean. Two random guys went to save him. The poor guy got sucked out into the currant and didn't have the strength to get back to shore. It was an exciting morning to say the least. We also decided not to venture into the water. It was a smart move.
After a little clean up, my Boo took me to a nice restaurant close by. It was called "The Boatyard" and was in a boat yard. Clever right? I thought so!

This is how we feel about being married. Just kiddin'! Nah, we're in love. 
I'll give $10 to whoever can guess who's cup this is. Mine or Jonathan's? Ok, I don't have $10...just guess for fun.
The food was so good! Mmmmm! However, the photos of Saturday stop here. Just as I was finishing the meal I got horribly sick. We had to cut our evening short and go back to our condo. (This kind of thing would happen to me!) Oh well! We did get to watch our wedding video later on. I had forgotten some of the funny things that happened on our wedding day!

Sadly, our trip had to end! It was wonderful while it lasted. Our kiddies will probably look back on these photos and think "Mom and Dad were so boring! All they did was sleep, eat and lay on the beach?" Yes, oh yes. Still, the days of sand toys and floaties will come. For now we are cherishing the days of "just us". It is fun to be able to selfishly sleep until 10 and eat at a table just for two. It has certainly been a fun 1st year of marriage for us!

I am very much looking forward to the rest of my life with this man!

I was just reading through some of your old posts, and your last one feels like it was written for me! I feel like I've been trying to put my finger on the whole concept of 'breaking down my dreams' for a long while now- and you wrote it out beautifully- so thank you! You are a talented writer!

Happy Anniversary to the beautiful young couple! It wasn't that bad, I'd rather be sick on the beach with my love than healthy indoors without him! Hope you are better and smiling on your lovin'! xox!

What a fun way to celebrate such a happy occasion! And you know what, isn't it comforting that even when life's not perfect and plans go awry, you've still got your best friend by your side? :) I love that. (P.S.~ Love your swimsuit! Do you mind sharing where you found it?)

Whity Wife said...

congrats!! btw, you look adorable! I also agree with you on that perfect morning. It's making me sad that my hubby sold his guitar for us when we were out of work.

This post made me so excited about our anniversary on sunday!

Sydney said...

YAY YAY YAY!!! Happy Anniversary! Looks like so much fun!
Sadly, I randomly get deathly ill as well. Once, we were having a grand time on vacation and I got so sick I had to lean on the wall and hold on to the handicap bar in the shower! Then my dearest cousin had to carry me. It was so annoying!
Glad you enjoyed your time though!!

Codi Nicol said...

I'm glad your anniversary went well! I thought I recognized the beach you were on when I saw it. I actually live about 5 minutes from the Boatyard restaurant you went to. It is a small world. God bless both of you.

Ashley said...

sleep & eat & lay on the beach? That is a perfect recipe for a wonderful time! :)

You have the most beautiful eyes ever! & I love love love PCB! I think I spent every Spring Break of my life there... :)

Mary said...

Congrats! We are almost to one year too!

Heart n Soul said...

Patti Hanan said...

Happy Anniversary! What a beautiful couple you make :) I love the pictures. I am blessed to live near the Pacific Ocean. I share your love for the beach. I guess the tea glass is yours :)

Chelsea said...

oh my goodness, just stumbled on your blog! yall are gorgeous!

Ramsey said...

Happy anniversary to you both!!! Do you not LOVE LOVE the Destin/PCB area? Geez I am seriously cravin' some beachin' sometime in the near future. Also, that swimsuit is super adorable. And next time you are there(Destin), you should hit up The Shed. It is our ABSOLUTE favorite BBQ shack! Oh, and the Boatyard has the most amazing chocolate covered key lime pie. Ever. Ok, enough food talk. Maybe I need a midnight snack.
Looks like a glorious time though!

Jessica said...
