Our First Anniversary
As you probably know already (if you follow my blog on a regular basis), Eric and I spent our first wedding anniversary at Daytona Beach, Florida, at the same hotel where we spent our honeymoon last year. Our honeymoon by chance ended up being at this beach-we had reservations for a Hilton in Pensacola Fl, but when the month before our wedding arrived and the news kept saying that the BP oil spill was headed DIRECTLY for the Florida gulf coast any day, we became more and more concerned that our beach honeymoon would be ruined and finally searched around for an alternative. Neither of us had ever been to Daytona-I was thinking huge crowds, race cars, and beer, but we decided to chance it anyways. It was great!! We had the hotel almost to ourselves, and the beach was pristine and almost empty as well. It made for a relaxing, romantic stay-that's why we were so eager to return.
I think it's just going to be our special spot, and I'm hoping that if we got there this year (with hardly any money) we will somehow make it a point to return often.

Probably one of my favorite parts of our trip was the car ride down to the beach though-it takes about 9 hours, and we talked and talked the whole time. When you have small children, sometimes you don't realize how little time or energy you have on a daily basis to just talk and connect with your partner-and damn it felt good!
Love you Eric ; )
