the Southernmost point

In September 2021, we went back to Key West.

Our first trip to Key West was for my 30th birthday. We picked it because it was new, tropical, and remote enough to be free from any family obligations. We had no idea how much we would love it – and how much we’d want to go back again!

As a couple, we often lean towards ‘adventure’ vacations in which we pack in as much site-seeing, tourism, and learning as possible. But that was not the purpose of this trip — this trip was just for us. Just to relax, to sit by the pool at time, to drink banana daiquiris and Cuban coffee. To simply be together for several days on end with minimal agendas or goals or timelines.

Of course, we still opted for SOME adventure…
And plenty of key lime pie. This slice was from Salute! on the Beach
And this one was from Bagatelle. Did you know that Key Lime is the official “state pie” of Florida?
We were both surprised at just how magical the Key West Butterfly House turned out to be!

This vacation was a good one. A last hurrah of summer, one final tan… But mostly it was just lovely to be together. How lucky am I to be so in love.

Cheers to a final summer adventure as fall begins!
