Show Us Your Life - Favorite Vacation Spot


I haven't traveled a whole lot by some people's standards, but I have been to a few pretty cool places, such as:
- Tahoe City, California
- Washington D.C.
- Virgin Islands
- San Francisco, California
- Charleston, South Carolina
- Walt Disney World (Orlando, Florida)
- New York City, New York

As beautiful as Tahoe and the virgin islands are, as fun as the fast paced city atmosphere of NYC is, as unique as the culture of San Francisco is, as fascinating as the histories of D.C. and Charleston are, and as fun as the fantasy of Disney World is; my ALL TIME FAVORITE vacation spot is.......

Destin, Florida

I think it has to do with the fact that, although the adventures were super fun and amazing in their own right and I'd never trade them; to me, for a vacation to be just that (a vacation) it has to be relaxed and laid back. And there is NOTHING like the beach. I just love relaxing on the sand, splashing in the sea, hitting up some outlets, and eating out a ton!!

Summer 1985-my first trip to Destin

Summer 2005-trip with Peyton and his brother

Summer 2006-girls' trip

Summer 2007-girls' trip

Summer 2008-my bachelorette trip

Well, we didn't make it this summer, because most three month olds don't love the beach (I did--see the first picture). But here is Ann Peyton pretending on the Boppy Pillow:
AP modeling her swimsuit. Her paci even matches--fierce, right?

I can't wait to take her next year!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

* Please excuse the quality, some are "pictures of pictures"--from before the digital age!
