Enjoy Life Today…

Enjoy life today. Yesterday is gone and tomorrow, may never come.

In my last post I spoke about how excited I was to be going to the Biltmore Estate for my husbands birthday. Things happened, life happened, and we will be rescheduling that trip.

A sweet friend of the family, not just friend but lets face it, we all saw her as family, passed away. I know that she is in a better place now and no longer suffering, and it seemed right that a woman who loves flowers so much was surrounded by so many.

My thoughts, love, and prayers go out to the family in this time of need.


Wild At Heart

Needless to say, it has definitely been awhile. My wedding and honeymoon have pretty much washed up the vacation days I had for work and what remains I am saving for emergencies. There isn’t much to dwell on other than I love being married and living with my best friend. It is great having someone with you and growing and learning about each other. And on October 17th we will be closing on our first home together, we are very excited and lots of pictures to come.

But even after marriage outings are needed to get away from everything and just have fun. So here are some random wildlife shots.

Leaving Key West

Honestly, we have been back home since Saturday. But I’ve been putting off writing this entry because, well it makes me a little sad. It was so blissful and peaceful while we were there. Not a care. No stress. No work. Just me and my husband. It’s still me and my husband but we are back at work. Back to reality. But like many things, there is a silver lining to being back. A sort of ‘look at the bright side’ moment. Now that we are married and together. It seems as if the day-to-day stress we used to have isn’t so bad. Because now we go home to each other. We also get more sleep since we go to sleep together/earlier because we aren’t talking to each other on the phone into the wee hours of the night, ha ha.

But there are other benefits to us finally being home and together. Now we get to plan future adventures together. It’s quite exciting.

So in a last adieu to Key West(one day we might go back) here are a few pictures we snapped on the road home. We stopped by a couple of parks on the way home and sometimes just pulled over.

Key West… Day 4

I’m sad to say, today was our last full day on the island. :( We had a lot of fun here, despite Josh having his cold. And I’m sure we will return to spend more time here and actually see the sights haha. We stopped by the Southernmost point but the lines were so long we didn’t grab a picture. It’s truly a beautiful place, worth the drive and time. It was a choice we will never regret making and was perfect. We didn’t stop by many of the different sights you can take in while here but we did go to the butterfly observatory today. I always enjoy these types of places and I have to admit this was one of the best ones I have ever been too. We took a lot of selfies this time around mainly to get some pictures of the both of us. Many of these pictures are with the GoPro because I do not have a wide angle lens that will capture our surrounding area as well. But I’m not disappointed with the results.

Oh yeah. Since it is our last full day here we decided to be dorks and wear.


Hubby & Wifey T-shirts!

We are a goofy couple and we own up to it. And as you can see the back have our #CiuiEverAfter hashtag (pictures on Instagram from Wedding and beyond)

For the rest of the day it was a mixture of things. Walking around. Lounging by the pool (for Josh) or swimming in the pool (for me). I can honestly say I’m going to miss this place. But alas we must return to real life soon and this chapter must end so that the real adventure can begin. I’ll keep you posted world.
