the southernmost point of my heart

Hello dearest bloggers, mmb and I have returned from our much needed
trip to Key West, Florida...also known as a little slice of heaven. 

We unplugged from our computers and blackberrys and just relaxed in the sun and took in the fun of Duval St! It was 5 days of bliss :) 

We spent our days and nights under the stars at the pool...

And dined at some really fantastic restaurants...

Got to see the southernmost part of the US...

and reveled in this...


And I did my first pub crawl, led by mmb!

and saw some gorgeous flowers...

and took in the famous sunset at Mallory Square.

It was amazing. 
Not only because it was great to relax for a few days, but because I could feel my mom's spirit every where I went. Key West was her favorite place. 

With this time being scheduled for A Week in the Life, I have decided to document this vacation in this style. I am excited about this new way to capture the memories of our trip. 

For now, I am relaxing with my love on the couch, catching up on tv and snuggle time with the cats and getting ready to dive back in to house hunting and the such! 

I am off to catch up on my google reader with memories of glowing sunsets in my mind.

Wow - what a truly lovely story! Gorgeous photos, touching memories - perfect!!

Thanks for stopping by my blog - I hope your house search is going well. We had a whole list of wants and were prepared to compromise on some of them but actually ended up getting the most perfect home that ticked ALL the boxes. Seriously. The craft space was the most likely to not happen (according to my husband any way!!) but i've ended up with a whole room, tucked away at the top of the house!! Best of luck with your search - i'll certainly be popping back here! xx
