We Love The Beach

I have had this post in my draft box for over a year, but today’s prompt from The Daily Post finally made me finish it & hit publish!


We love the beach.

We don’t go as often as people from South Florida should, but nonetheless we love it.

We’ve had many special memories at the beach.

Going to Orange Beach, AL for Memorial Day has become a family tradition on my mother-in-law’s side & we look forward to it every year.

Going with our friends is always a fun time – even more so now with their baby!

The beach has a special meaning to us because we’ve had a lot of relationship milestones there:

1 year dating anniversary beach weekend, October 2013.

It’s where we got engaged May 8, 2014.

It’s where we ended our 1 year wedding anniversary date.

The beach allows us to be silly together…

…and it teaches us important life lessons (like sunscreen EXPIRES).

The beach is a place we feel comfortable. The smells, sights, & sounds are all very soothing. God really knows what he’s doing.

At our wedding we did a sand ceremony. Half of the sand we used was from Ft. Lauderdale beach, taken from right where we got engaged.

Maybe the beach holds a special place in our hearts because one of our first photos together was taken at the beach, at night, 8 or so years before we ever looked at each other as more than friends.

I’m glad we live less than 30 minutes away from the beach.

Here’s to many, many more beach days & nights with my wonderful husband!
