bahamas part 1

oh bahamas.....

i wake up every morning wanting to be back on your beautiful beaches. it's safe to say that the mr. and i throughly enjoyed our little getaway to come visit you. i still can't get over how incredible your blue waters were. i close my eyes and see the beautiful aqua color fade in and out. 

we started out the trip just the two of us. we had a few incredible days just the two of us before my family came in to join us. we spent our time laying out by the pool. exploring our little side of the island on our golf cart. kayaking across the most beautiful bay. reading way too many books. taking naps each day. eating all we could stuff in our little selves. catching up on life and each others dreams and just being together. it was so nice to have a few days with no school/work/phone/church to worry about. we just enjoyed our time together. just us. it was heaven sent. 

i think my favorite part was our meal times. we would just talk. neither of us had our phones and didn't really wear our watches. time didn't matter. no one could reach us. it was just us. we would sit looking out at the most incredible view. spence caught me up on all things that are going on in the world. i filled him in on all my work gossip and the such. we made big plans and daydreamed about our life and future family. we'd end with dessert and walk hand in hand back to our little house. 

it was one of the first times since our honeymoon that we were really able to get away and relax. it was just what we needed. we reconnected as mr. and mrs. and prepared ourselves to start school (the mr.) and jet off for more events (the mrs.). 

my family flew in on tuesday. by that time we were rested and ready for some more excitement and adventures. to spare you a picture overload today i'll post those tomorrow!
