Sorry about the short hiatus I took these last few days from the blogging world, I was having quite an adventure!
The boyfriend and I headed down to Florida for some sun and fun :)
If you follow me on Instagram then you’ve already seen a few of my shenanigans.
I have my boaters license and have grown up on the water, but I usually only go around the gulf and ICW where I live (aka I’ve memorized every manatee zone and channel marker, so it’s not too tough).
Saturday the boyfriend and I jumped on my boat and headed down to my friend’s island house on Little Gasparilla Island. I was the captain and was a bit petrified to say the least with this three hour trip south via boat… (cue Gilligan’s Island theme song please!)
Side note: I love Gillian’s Island :) I’m proud to admit that I have all of the seasons on DVD. I’m a Mary Ann at heart!
To my sheer relief, we survived the trip! :) I even gave the boyfriend a chance to show off his captain skills. This adventure definitely built some character for us!
From then on, my boat stayed safely tied up at the dock and my friends and I ran around the island like we were 5-year-old pirates! By about 5pm every night we were exhausted, starving, and had absorbed just about as much sun as we could handle. It’s times like this, surrounded by your friends and loved ones, that you realize just how wonderful life is.
Make sure you always take some time out of your busy schedule to enjoy the little things in life. Put your phone and computer away for a few days and just enjoy the present!
Living in DC has made me appreciate the weather, beach, and my friends from home so much more! Getting back on the plane to DC yesterday evening was not the most fun… Can I go back now?
P.S. I’m headed to North Carolina this weekend for a wedding on the beach and am staying in a house with 6 other couples! Any great snack/ dessert recipes you can recommend I should make for the weekend? I don’t want to arrive empty handed and I know there will be a lot of hungry people (including myself)!
