So I'll start off by telling you, that as you're reading this, I'll be sailing off in the Caribbean. Yes, I'm excited. It's amazing. I know. No seriously, the best way to enter the New Year, right? I didn't even celebrate New Years eve. I offered to baby sit my niece (best aunt ever, I know) instead, because I figured I would be heading off to celebrate on the ocean with some of my favorite ladies (and a Marcus too) and that would definitely be a big enough party :) If you want to follow along on the ocean adventure, you can always follow along on the ohdeardrea instagram :)
So a week before I re-turned in my manuscript, I decided to take a much needed family day. We headed downtown to the market, ate popsicles, had coconuts, sat by the water, snapped photos---- you know, the good stuff. Later met up with my brother and his family, ate tacos, and shared a pitcher of margaritas, where I sadly got day drunk off of one drink. I pretty much stopped drinking this year, so I just can't hang anymore. One drink and I'm done. Anyway, the weather was beautiful and it was just a wonderful day to do nothing with the people I love most.
not into it. whatever, marlowe.
how we build snowmen in Florida.
Theres this thing that my family does now-- where it's a constant joke about starting a blog about my blog--- and all pictures of me taking pictures of things. Pictures of Drea's pictures-- or something. So here's that.
my brother snapped one of me and this nugget. love her. easiest kiddo I know.
...and of course there is a foraging, plant crazy alex in the background.
M and I are bumming Alex couldn't join us for the trip. Especially since we haven't seen much of him this season--- but I know he'll be enjoying his quiet time while we're away. I expect a very well rested husband and an extra beautiful garden when we get back. (We love you babe! More days like this soon!)
We'll be back in the country next week--- but no worries, I have lots of posts lined up for this week :) &don't forget to follow along on instagram :) Bon Voyage!
