zero george staycation

I've long-admired Zero George Boutique Hotel so was ecstatic when they invited Blake and me for a night to celebrate our engagement. It's the place I always recommend to out-of-towners as it perfectly combines the history and charm of Charleston with luxe, modern elements.

We made a point to have a productive morning at home so we could truly enjoy our little stay cation. It was so nice relaxing in the beautiful reading rooms, the porches and courtyards, and holing up in their cozy bar for wine and cheese before (if I'm being honest...) watching the Bachelor. :)

Thank you so much to Zero George for the lovely stay -- we can't wait until it's warm enough to sit outside with some spicy margaritas!

the keys!

While in Miami, Blake and I took a day trip with his parents to the Keys.  They go all the time to fish and hang out, but this was more of a sight-seeing trip on my behalf. We ended up driving all the way down to Key West (90 miles from Cuba!), ate some delicious tacos and saw Hemingway's house. The scenery during the drive was glorious, and we stopped midway in Islamorada for mojitos and a sunset view.

garden hopping in miami

Blake and I recently spent a few days down in Miami visiting his parents/(my future in-laws! to be clear :). Along with an airboat ride through the everglades, mojitos in Miami Beach, and a quick trip to the Keys, Blake took me to two amazing spots: Villa Vizcaya and Fairchild Botanical Gardens. I got to have fresh maracuyá juice (which I haven't had since Peru last year at this time!) and I got to spend hours oooogling all the tropical plants and flowers. Dream day! Thanks B.
