It’s like a honeymoon, but one of you is pregnant.
We spent a long weekend in Destin, FL at the Sandestin Resort to celebrate our impending parenthood. The other goal was to take one last vacation with just the two of us, no diapers, no strollers, no guilt for leaving Baby behind. I’d say it was successful.
Just my own personal opinions here (no perks from the resort) but Sandestin was great. There was so much to do, the pools were beautiful (though it was a little too chilly to swim, and if you know me well, you will know I thought that was HEAVEN), and the beach was gorgeous. It would really make for a fun Family Vacation one day. Or even an fun Extended Family Vacation.
But then we went to Seaside, FL. And I fell in love. In fact, almost all of the images above are from Seaside. If you’ve never been – go. It’s this cute little community on the Florida Panhandle, the beach is totally amazing, the shops are perfect, the food was great (there was an Airstream selling gourmet grilled cheeses on the main stretch. Enough said). Next time we head that way, we are definitely renting a house in Seaside (or the neighboring, and just as quaint Watercolor, FL), bringing our bikes, and living like locals.
We did a little outlet shopping for the Babe, ate at Panera Bread 4 times in 4 days, and relaxed. Exactly what we both needed.
