The Sun is Out!

When I woke up today and saw the sun for the first time in what feels like weeks...I was so happy I felt like I was on vacation! So, Adriah picked out a pretty pink dress and we walked to the park. I breathed deeply and relished every moment! I love the sun! As I was walking, I started thinking about all the incredible places I've been! I traveled tons before I got married and it's still one of our favorite things to do together!

Here's a question for ya..."What was your favorite vacation? And what made it incredible?"

I know mine without too much thought:

1. (inside the US) - This past summer we went to South Carolina to visit family and we did a ton of fun "outdoorsy" stuff, got great pictures and more than anything was the first vacation I felt like share with Adriah instead of just having her along! It was different, she had fun and came away with memories of her own! I LOVED THAT! Check out past personal blogs for pictures.

2. (inside North America) - This one's easy! A few years ago we were given an incredible gift at a private resort in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. It was gorgeous...beyond gorgeous! It's the place stars go to get away from normal folk like us! When we were there...we felt like royalty and loved faking it! We stayed at the Esperanza and yeah...the pictures on the website say it all!

3. (inside Central America) - 2 weeks in Costa Rica! Our honeymoon...Matt planned the whole thing and it was a surprise! We rented a car and saw both oceans, rain-forests, amazing animals, cities, little towns and we even did canopy tours. We had a blast!

4. (inside Europe) - Tour of France, Italy, Slovenia and Croatia! Another vacation planned to perfection by my husband! 2 weeks traveling the countryside, seeing new things together but also getting to see Europe through his eyes. Matt lived there for a year and he got to take me to all his old favorite hangouts! We bonded!

OKAY! I'm ready! Let's hear all the places you've been and want me (or my family) to travel to!
