sometimes you just need to get away...

...and get away we did!

for our one year anniversary, which already feels like ages ago.
can we go back like today, pleeeease?!

some of you followed along our adventures via instagram...where i know, i know i tended to overgram it but i couldn't help it with so much beauty surrounding us and just the absolute giddiness of finally being on vacation together at one of our favorite places in the world: st. simons, ga.

we are both morning people (gaaaah! i can't believe i've said that but believe it or not, over the past year, i've def become one. still need my cup of coffee but my internal clock wakes me up at seven a.m. these days. geez. i'm such an old lady) so we woke up at sunrise every morning. and oh goodness - the sunriiiiise. it was absolutely breath-taking to see every day especially as it peeked through the ocean's horizon, surrounded by pink and purple colors. God's creation never stops to amaze me.

and many mornings and afternoons and early evenings were spent walking on the beach. though it was chillier than other days we'd been on the islands, the temperatures were warmer than back home in atlanta, so we soaked up every bit of being outdoors.


our sneakers were caked with wet sand and my hair so beach-blown. we chased seagulls and laughed at how cute they all were, gathered together and looking for food. some moments were just spent in silence, walking hand in hand and enjoying togetherness.

and watching and listening to the waves crash against the absolute fave.

soooooooo Ryan, when's our next vacation again? *blinks eyelashes profusely*

much love.
