Weekending in Florida | Photo Diary

Happy Monday friends! Coming off of a seriously incredible long weekend in Florida! I'm going to let the photos do the majority of the talking, but the main reason for this trip was so that Sophia could meet her great grandmothers! A wish I had when I was pregnant and I'm so grateful that it came true! Here's a photo diary of our weekend!
Flew in bright and early on Thursday and Sophia's first flight was a success! She was an angel baby and slept for about an hour and then played the rest of the time! 

Sophia met her cousin Vienna for the first time and I think they'll be fast friends! 
Friday was our first full day and we certainly made the most of it! Our first stop was to see my grandmother's and oh was it just the best first meeting ever! While they may not have completely comprehended it, I will say that the smiles on their faces was everything I dreamt of and more! These photos will hold the memories that I wanted for Sophia!
 There are four generations in this photo!
Sophia's first time on the beach was a success - although I'm not sure if she was a fan of the sand, much like her mama!

I could just eat her up and she's not having any of it!



Friday night Gary and I went out to dinner at One Ocean Resort where we were married 6 years ago this month. It was really surreal to be back and we recreated on of our favorite wedding photos. The restaurant, Azurea was incredible and the staff went above and beyond to make sure we had a memorable evening! 
 These are shorts are going to be worn all Spring and Summer - love the ruffle!



Saturday we spent the first half of the day in St. Augustine. It's funny because anytime I'm back in Jacksonville, I very rarely have time to do anything, but this trip we really packed it all in! The last time Gary and I went to St. Augustine was when we were searching for wedding venues 7 years ago. We walked up and down King Street & through all the shops. There was actually an early St. Patrick's Day parade which made it that much more exciting. It was another beautiful day and Sophia was loving the sunshine so we decided to have lunch outside at A1A Ale Works - right on the corner King Street before the Lions Bridge!






Sunday was my birthday! From a play date in the morning to dinner with friends in the evening - it was an all around perfect day! There are two things that I just haven't had in the longest time since Boston doesn't have these restaurants and that's bang bang shrimp from Bonefish & cheddar bay biscuits from Red Lobster. Both were consumed on my birthday because why not!?  Starting out my 32nd year incredibly grateful for all of life's blessings! 

Wishing you a wonderful start to the week!
