The 8 days we spent in the sun after our wedding were so necessary and greatly appreciated. We didn't go to a resort or a mountain but we did go to my Grandma's empty condo in Naples, Florida that was minutes away from multiple beaches, with 3 pools in the condo area, complete with a vehicle to get us where we needed to go! It was quiet, hot, relaxing, and blissful. We technically left the day after our wedding around 11:30pm. We had to drive 3 hours to Grand Forks, ND for our flight that took off at 5:00am. After only getting 3 hours of sleep the night of our wedding and having to pull an all nighter to get to the airport, I was feeling pretty cranky. The adrenaline from the wedding slowly started to wear off and I have to admit I was a bit of a trainwreck! However, once we arrived in the sunshine state we took a 30 minute cab ride to our honeymoon suite and I slept for 12 hours straight. It. Was. Amazing.
We had 8 days to do whatever we please which included going on a dolphin excursion (the coolest thing ever is interacting with 100% wild dolphins in their natural habitat), going to the zoo (my thoughts on zoos are kinda complicated but this one happened to only have animals born at their zoo or were wounded or disabled and unable to live in the wild), and at least 3 hours in the pool every day which we always had completely to our selves! While a part of me wanted to show Kyle every possible piece of the small coastal town that my family vacationed to my whole life, we also really enjoyed spending good chunks of time on the couch snuggling and being lazy.
More stories to come in part 2 of the honeymoon with a ton more pictures!!
