This past weekend, we took advantage of the Bed and Breakfast stay that we had gotten as a wedding gift from Nick's uncle who also lives in this area. It was the perfect end to our time in Destin. We got to experience the vacation feel of this area. Our stay was at Hibiscus Coffee and Guesthouse in Grayton Beach! We did lots of walking and lots of eating. I would recommend every restaurant that we went to...there wasn't a bad one! We spent the days on the beach and the nights on the town. We got to have deep conversations about marriage that don't always come up in every day conversation. I love talking about strengths and weaknesses because it only makes us a better team.
Friday, we hopped in the car right after Nick got home from work. We checked into the Turner room at Hibiscus. Cozy, cozy! It was small and sweet! I had been researching restaurants a few days before, and after a little confusion on our phones map, we landed at La Cocina. It was soo good and the staff was on top of it! Best chips and salsa that I have had in the 10 months of living here. After that, we hopped over the the Rosemary downtown and stopped by La Crema for dessert. It was a very romantic spot and had a very yummy menu.
That night we walked next door to Pandora's. We both had steak and it was soo good! Plus we went before 6 so it was buy one meal, get one free. Score for the newly married folks! Since we saved so much money (just kidding!), we headed to Seaside to eat ice cream and people watch. We laughed and just had a good time together. I'm not even sure which ice cream place we went to, but it sure was good!
It was a sweet weekend of deep conversation, quiet time with the Lord, book finishing, and date nights. Perfection!
Oh and we got to come home to this sweet thing...
Thanks for reading! Go check out Seaside, FL! You won't be disappointed!
