The Beach is the Best

We went to Florida last week! And it was wonderful! And maybe I'm still on a vacation high! 

Eric and I left Piglet with his parents and my parents (they each had him for a couple of days) and just had time to ourselves to relax and enjoy the beach. It wasn't my first time leaving him (remember how I visited Eric in NYC?) but of course I was still sad when we left. 


BUT. Spending time together without your child is SO valuable. It was so nice to just focus on each other (and sleep in!). We came home so refreshed and relaxed. 


We stayed in Rosemary, which is really lovely and quiet. We rented a car at the airport but in retrospect, we wouldn't have done that again since we literally walked/rode bicycles everywhere. 



The beach wasn't too crowded while we were there so we were able to carve out our own little area. We both read novels and got sunburns despite slathering ourselves in lots and lots of sunscreen. 




Themain street In Rosemary is so pretty! Very European feeling - little cafes and shops line the cobblestone street. 
 




When we were leaving, Eric said "let's come back over Labor Day." I don't think that will be happening, but we just loved our time so much that we are ready to do it again!

  3. The beach looks beautiful, and it sounds like such a wonderful trip.

    It is hard being away from the little one but sleeping in is a wonderful luxury! I cried so much when I was away for a weekend without baby last year, but ended up enjoying my time away.

  9. Yes! Beach and baby-free time are both good for a momma. And a marriage. So great you had a chance to do it, and isn't Rosemary beach so great? We love the atmosphere and great little restaurants there.

Thanks so much for your comment! I reply to my comments via email, but I can't do that if you are a no-reply blogger (if you don't know what that means, you probably are). Check out this tutorial to fix it!
