Hi friends! Long time no chat! I have missed blogging over the last few weeks! I have just finished up summer classes, so I have a bit of free time now! Yippee! I have been very eager to write this post, because this trip was so special. In the midst of my crazy summer schedule, we had a few days off for the July 4th holiday. We took that as our opportunity to take a vacation and celebrate our one year anniversary, which was actually July 7th. We are both beach-obsessed people, and we were counting down the days until this trip! We decided to go to Florida, and Jared was determined to get us to an area with lots of waves, because he loves to surf! We headed down to Vero Beach right after dinner and drove all through the night! We decided to take Jared’s Mini, which unfortunately is a stick shift. Therefore, I couldn’t drive at all! He drove the whole 10 hours! What a trooper!! I think it’s time for me to learn how to drive a manual…Anyway…Here are some highlights from our trip! We had an amazing amazing amazing time! Words can’t even begin to describe how nice it was to be away from the business of life for a few days and have my husband all to myself! 🙂 And, we were able to maintain our Paleo eating lifestyle even on vacation, which was awesome! We had one non-paleo treat, and it was totally worth it! Wait till you see the pictures of that!!!! 😀
We arrived to Daytona early in the morning, and decided to stop off for breakfast. This was when my omelette obsession began! I never make omelets at home, because they always turn out a big huge mess. But I literally ordered an omelette EVERY SINGLE MORNING on vacation! It was fun! Every restaurant does theirs a different way! And they were all amazing! I just love eggs. And I love vegetables. So when those two are mixed together, it’s perfection!
We headed to the beach immediately!! We both feel like we are meant to live at the beach….Ahhhhh. Such a happy place. We went out for some fresh seafood on our first night! Well, every night actually! Haha
A lot of these pictures will be from our restaurant excursions. We didn’t want to bring all of our camera gear to the beach, because that’s just scary. So at least we got pictures of all of our food!! 🙂 Typical!
The next morning we ate breakfast at a cool spot on the ocean! It was fabulous! I think this was the best omelet of the trip! SOOO many veggies inside! (These 2 pictures were taken with my iPhone… 😛 )
Dinner was at Squid Lips! It wasn’t one of our favorite restaurants…..I promise the vegetables were straight out of a can! Not the greatest…However, my salmon was incredible!
This dinner was super fun! Jared had a “cheat meal” which was a full blown hamburger with the bun and cheese! He said it was AMAZING!!! Our cheat meals are always so fun!
A brand new Thai restaurant had just opened up around the corner from where we were staying, so we had to check it out. We were SO impressed! It was the best curry we’ve ever had! And the best part, it was totally Paleo! The chef didn’t add any sugar to it! It was awesome!
Random Starbucks quickie! One the way home, we ate breakfast in Cocoa Beach at a really cute place. This was the last omelette of the trip.. 😛 It was stinkin’ MASSIVE! But so so good! We divided up our drive home and decided to take a break in Savannah. It was my first time visiting, believe it or not! We had a great time. I want to go back!! We found an all-organic yummy lunch spot that was fabulous! I ordered a mahi-mahi salad! Mmmmmm!
And these are just fun pictures we took around the town! Well, that’s all folks! I guess I didn’t have a whole lot to say, but the pictures should speak for themselves. We had such a great time. It felt like a mini honeymoon! This has been the best year of my life, and I thank God daily for the gift of marriage! Thank you to everyone who has been a part of our marriage. We have been so blessed by so many people, and it is a constant reminder of just how faithful God is.
I hope you guys all have a great great Monday!! ❤
Hopefully I will be back VERY soon!! I’m going to write a paleo post with lots of great information, I promise! 🙂
Oh GOSH! I almost forgot to include these pictures from my iPhone…..I had a Paleo-cheat at this amazing french bakery! Look how adorable everything was!! Jared and I both got something so that we could share! I was just in heaven! I love beautiful desserts! 🙂
Just heaven! ❤
