HEAVEN ON EARTH!

I'm home! I spent the past week at 2 different beaches and loved every second of it!
My week in paradise began with my friend Heather and me heading to Orange Beach. There, Heather and I did nothing but RELAX. It was exactly what we both needed after completing another year of teaching! Heather's parents graciously allowed us to stay in their condo and I could not be more grateful to them!
Alright Heather, is it too soon to start the countdown for our beach trip for NEXT year??

On Thursday, I left Orange Beach and drove a couple of hours to Seaside, Florida, where I met my family for a few days. "The Truman Show" was filmed in this picturesque town, and the town was just as beautiful was it was in the movie! We stayed in a fantastic cottage, which was walking distance to the beach, shopping, restaurants, etc. It was unlike anywhere I've ever been before!


Pictures of the cottage where we stayed:
As much as I didn't want to leave the life of luxury on the beach, I was glad to be home to see Max, who had been staying with a friend of mine. I'm going to spend my day cleaning, grocery shopping, and running about another zillion errands. Jealous anyone? ;)
