This past weekend my husband and I had our first getaway as husband and wife since the arrival of our girls…which is over 3 years! It was a well needed getaway/vacation for the both of us. For our getaway we headed down to the beautiful Marathon Florida and stayed at the amazing Tranquility Bay Resort.
It was the perfect place to relax and look around and see nothing but beautiful things.
Tranquility Bay is one of the most beautiful resorts. They offer 2 and 3 bedroom beach houses on the property. Each with a kitchen, 2 bathrooms, porches to sit and take in the view, and so much more. It’s a place where you wish you could stay forever. It really is beautiful not only for a husband and wife getaway but it’s also great for families. Plenty of activities for everyone.
We took advantage of the water activities one day taking the kayak and paddle board out on the water and exploring Marathon. We had a lot of fun and got a great workout at the same time. I also got a chance to go for a morning run. The resort is very close to the old 7-mile bridge which is now a pedestrian bridge. It was beautiful to run on the bridge and have pelicans flying by. But mostly we just sat back and relaxed and enjoyed the resort.
All that it had to offer….
From the flowers surrounding the property to the property itself.
And at night we headed out and enjoyed the sunsets of Marathon Key from the beach of Tranquility Bay.
If you have the chance I highly recommend this fabulous resort. And if you are looking for a place to eat on the island you have to eat at the Tranquility Bay restaurant Butterfly Cafe. It was the best dinner we had on the island….and the Grouper is a must try! It was fabulous!! And if you are a Key Lime Pie fan my husband loved theirs.
As I write this post I’m secretly planning and hoping we can get back to this resort soon and maybe next time the girls can come along so we can all enjoy it together. It really was amazing!!
Here are a few pictures from my recent trip to Salt Lake City. It was a short trip but I really enjoyed Salt Lake. What a great city! Very clean and the snow topped mountains were breath taking!
This is a photo of Salt Lake Cities City Hall. It was beautiful!
These are the deer sculptures in the Courtyard Garden at The Grand America Hotel in Salt Lake. They were too cute and I knew the girls would love seeing a picture of them.
And here is one more of the sky line. A great city! So clean and very safe. A great place to visit not only for the skiing, but for the city itself.
It was a great city, but I’m happy to be home to my family and warm temperatures of South Florida.
This section is completely devoted to mom’s out there. This is a place to find the latest things that I happen to stumble across and want to share with other mommies out there. Ranging from fashion and beauty to house and home. As a mommy myself I know how much we do. I’m hoping my posts will help you find things for you.
All About Mommy started in late Jan. 2010. Come back as I start to post more things in the other categories. And please leave comments and let me know what you think or if you have something to recommend. I love hearing from everyone.
As you all know we just made it back from our holiday travels to Charleston, South Carolina. Charleston is one of my favorite cities for so many different reasons. It is truly a beautiful city that has so much to offer. It holds a special place in my heart. I thought I would share the many reasons why I love this city and all the memories and all it has to offer!
Here are a couple reasons why I have such special memories here…..
My husband and I got engaged right on the porch of this house in the above picture! Yep! My wonderful husband surprised me that August night by telling me there was a art show of special Southern artist at that house. Boy was I surprised when I walked into a very quiet house with no art! I soon forgot when I was guided to a porch decorated with candles and flowers. I will never forget that very special night.
A year and two months after getting engaged we got married in this wonderful city!! We actually got married in the oldest Baptist Church in Charleston.
Now the other reasons why I love Charleston!
For it’s beauty….
For it’s wildlife….
For it’s handmade baskets by the locals….
For it’s nature….
For it’s early mornings on the water….
There is so much to love about this city. I could only capture so much. If you’ve never been it’s worth the trip!
Till next time….
Happy New Years Everyone!!!
