Vacation Fun....and a Winner!


A few weeks ago, S and I hit up Florida (Key West and Miami) for a little babymoon. The trip was busy and fun and involved lots of (a) sun, (b) beach, (c ) good food, and (d) fun memories together. So all in all, a success:)

As you can see, we were pretty pumped in the airport heading off on our adventure:


Key West was full of little hole-in-the-wall restaurants and sweet shops, and I loved wandering up and down Duval street and checking them out!


These weren't kosher, so I didn't sample them, but they did look delicious. . . .

And is this not the cutest little store you've ever seen? (This photo is also an excellent example of why you need to change your ISO when you go outside. Oops!)


At night, we headed out to Mallory Square to watch the sunset and all of the random fire-juggling acts. One guy was juggling fiery torches while on a unicycle very close to the dock's edge. Which made me quite nervous on his behalf. I could barely enjoy the show!

Even though this photo is kind of messed up, it does illustrate the motion and craziness of Mallory Square, which I love!


The ocean and sailboats in Key West were just beautiful....


And even though it was a different view, I also loved the high-risers and palm trees in Miami.

On one of our last days, we decided to do a tour of the Everglades. The alligators were pretty agreeable (apparently, it's the crocodiles that eat people. Like in Peter Pan), but some of the other travelers on our airboat? A bit of a different story. Not that it wasn't entertaining.


And last but not least, we have a winner for the My Memories giveaway! The random.org number was 3, so the winner is:

CONNIE!

pretty cool

How's that for a smooth transition? Ha!

Now that our vacation is over and I need to carry a cardigan in my purse, fall is officially here. What are YOU most excited for this season?

  10. Looks like you had so much fun! I love Florida. I so badly want to retire there some day (how cliche is that? :>)

    Fall is my favorite season-sweatshirts and football, bonfires and pumpkins, so many things!!

  14. Hope you had a great vacation! We were at the beach last week and came back completely unprepared for needing long pants. :)

    Is it hard to keep Kosher on vacation? Or does it require a ton of planning?

    Also saw your q on SC about working moms, and wanted to give you my thoughts, since I really appreciated your input on my daycare vs nanny question a few weeks ago. So, I've got a bachelors in chemical eng, and an MBA. That's a lot of work (and still not nearly as much as passing the bar!). No matter what you think or decide now, it's so hard to tell how your feelings will change in a few months. If I were you, I'd keep going with work. It will be a lot easier to later decide you want to cut back your hours, or quit entirely. But I think it would be harder to go the other way - to later decide that you want to work when you've been out. I would have gone crazy if I were at home when the girls were infants. We don't have any family nearby (actually, I grew up in NJ!), and I needed a break from it all. Now that they're almost 3, I think it would be a different story. But daycare (and largely being around other kids) taught them more than I could have ever imagined. I could go on, but this is getting long. Feel free to ask me anything.

  21. How fun!! Looks like an amazing time! I really wish Jeremy and I could have done a little trip like that before Hattie was born. It's okay though... now we can have a family vacation! :D
