For Christmas last year the family and I went to one of my favorite places on earth- Florida!!
It was so nice to get away for the Christmas season, and even nicer that we were able to go to the beach! While it was colder back home, we all enjoyed 60 degree weather, the beach, the ocean, and the fact that we could wear shorts in December!
Along with the trips to the Naval Aviation museum, beaches, and flea markets we were able to drive around the University of West Florida campus. I hope to transfer there after I finish my bachelors degree!
The view from our condo’s balcony! It was so peaceful to sit and listen to the waves crash onto the shore.
The pier on one of the beaches. Every time we go to this particular beach I end up taking so many pictures of the pier……then change my cover photo on Facebook to one of the pictures of said pier. (:
The above picture was my favorite of the pier…and the picture I picked for my cover photo!
The ‘Pensacola Beach’ beach ball shaped water tower is in the background of this picture. It always amazes me how white the sand is and how blue the sky is at the beach!
The ocean was so gorgeous on Christmas Eve, what better place to be?
Our itty bitty sandman….it was A LOT harder to build than I initially thought. My sister and I accidentally destroyed the first sandman while attempting to fix it. Dad ended up making this one…good job Dad!
My sister bought me this adorable turtle bracelet! I absolutely LOVE turtles! It was by far my most favorite gift. (:
Our Christmas bauble cake. It was almost too cute to eat! (;
On one of the last days of our holiday the sister and I went for a walk along the coast of the bay behind our condo. I enjoyed all the one on one time we got to spend together.
A gorgeous hibiscus flower. Usually I don’t care for the color orange, but I think that in this case it’s just lovely.
The Christmas tree at the boardwalk, I loved the blue ornaments and the starfish!
Of course we went back to the Naval Aviation Museum while we were there! It was our second time going and it was amazing. You could probably go every day that the museum is open and see something new every time!
I know that this post is a couple months late, but I wanted to share a few of my favorite photos from our trip. How did you spend your Christmas holiday?
