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.
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.
Today was another moderately late day. Mainly because it was actually storming pretty bad here this morning. But all is well we were still able to investigate a little bit. I do feel terrible that my poor husband seems to have caught a cold so he isn’t getting to enjoy himself to the fullest. :( But we are still enjoying our adventure because it’s just the two of us together, and that’s what it’s all about. Me and him together. Forever.
We adventured around the streets, there’s so many colors every, just off the sidewalk honestly. It was pretty cool and I event decided to try the “local hydration” (those of you who’ve been here I do NOT mean beer…) I actually mean Coconut Water, straight from the source.
You don’t even have to travel very far to see something interesting or pretty. I love the bikes that were occasionally seen. Covered in flowers, locks, keychains and what not. They’re beautiful. There are a bunch of shops and stores that have really beautiful items for sale. Artwork, photographs, pottery, souvenirs. It’s and array of items for sale for anyone who wants them. We grabbed a few items here and there but for the most part we are trying to wait until tomorrow or Friday to do all of our Souvenir shopping.
After breakfast we came back to the cottage to chill a little, Josh wasn’t feeling great so we relaxed, and I took to the pool. I love this pool. I wish I could have a small private pool like this. It’s absolutely adorable and just perfect. I took the GoPro swimming too so we could get some interesting underwater shots too. HA HA I am in no way a pro GoPro photographer or some extreme underwater shots or anything. I just like to have fun.
And once the pool was done we had dinner. It’s been a seafood kind of week, probably since we are on the coast. But today was more of a gastropub, fish and chips kind of place.
It was a good place. Doesn’t look like much from the outside but the food was on par. After our filling and yet not too filling dinner we were back on the streets. Just walking around again. We checked hours on some of the places, like the butterfly house, and a few other places and just wandered around. Went to the beach again, watched the gulls. With travelling most would probably make a list of all the places they want to go and see. I do that too, I did it with the D.C trip too. But this trip is for Josh and I. It’s our honeymoon. And truthfully for us all that matters is being together. I know there’s a lot of things that maybe we aren’t doing that we should be. But this is our time to relax and enjoy our time together. We will have all of our lives to do what we want to do together… maybe when we don’t have colds. So if we want to walk around, enjoy the sights of the streets, stop at used bookstores (which are RIDICULOUSLY expensive) and buy 1 book. Then we are going to do what we want to do.
I never claim to be a professional photographer. By far I am nowhere compared to one. I’m amateurish at best. But I am a photographer:
Def: A person who takes photos.
I love to take photos and use whatever camera I have on hand. Be it my phone or my Canon. As a ‘person who takes photos,’ I’ve accumulated a lot of miscellaneous photos, brief glimpses into my life and many times these photos can get missed. Overlooked. Some photographers might view these pictures as flawed, not post worthy, low quality. But I like them, flaws and all. These are all random but all recently taken (within the last week).
Brief moments of my life. He’s way to heavy for this.
