Last night, I started going through the pictures from Key West.  I love them all.  They bring back such great memories.  First off, it was me and Lance away for 6 days without our children.  That’s not really something I go for normally, but this trip was special.  It was for our ten year anniversary.  He wanted it, I was dragging, then Paul and Brian took over and reservations were made.

We had a blast.  Once I got past the damn plane.  When we made reservations, nobody mentioned the small/tiny plane I would be required to board to get to Key West.  The conversations prior to the flight and during the flights were tense.  But I made it there, completely and utterly drugged up, but I made it.  And let’s be real, it wasn’t my first round with Xanax so I was good to go once we landed.  I vaguely remember telling everyone we needed matching tattoos around 2 am.  (There is nothing to show, the guys all refused.)

Sure, it was hot.  Very hot,  And humid.  But honestly, I was with my favorite people in the world so I was fine.  Plus, we had a pool at our cottage.  We would just run home and take a swim.

The week was wonderful: we ate a lot, drank a lot, swam in our pool, stayed up late talking, walked all over, went snorkeling, took a sunset cruise, had someone take the four of us out on a boat to fish and snorkel, saw dolphins.  We really enjoyed our time.

We stayed on Love Lane.  How fitting for an anniversary trip.

My honey, who makes everything amazing.

  1. From Jenn:

    I can’t wait to hear more about this amazing trip! And you all look so happy, so very, very happy. That’s not to say that you don’t look happy all of the time. I see the joy you have in your daily life, but every picture looks like you had the very best time celebrating!

    • From Nicole:

      Thanks, Jenn. Once I landed, I definitely let go. I knew the kids were in good hands, and I knew this is where I needed to be. SO strange, or really dumb, but as I was praying, (b/c I pray the rosary more in the air than at any other time, I was thinking about how God wouldn’t put me with someone who would lead me astray. Anyway, worked for praying! Tell you more in person.) We had a great time, and I’m happy we went.
