We found this cute little cottage on Airbnb in St. Augustine and were off for our last week-long getaway just the three of us (J, Lil and I). Stefanie and her husband were incredible hosts, we had fresh eggs waiting for us every morning – we also scored fresh fruit from trees on their property.
This is just a little glimpse of their sweet backyard. It was so full of life and character.
FRESH SUGARCANE! Neither Justin or I had ever had sugarcane. Just in case you were wondering: that’s how you chew it… 😉
We visited St. Augustine Distillery, Justin partook in the tasting but I’ll have to wait until next time ;). We had dinner at the Ice Plant after and it was delicious — their Blue Crab Beignets may be the best thing that I’ve ever tasted.
We spent our days on the beach relaxing and our evenings downtown exploring and eating way too much. One day we visited the fort and Justin was like a kid in a candy shop! I couldn’t help but think of how fun it will be to bring Oliver back so they can enjoy it together.
J’s favorite place in St. Aug! He loves their milkshakes.
We also bought my favorite piece in Oliver’s nursery (check it out in the upcoming nursery post) at one of the shops in downtown St. Augustine, Justin and I fell in love with it the very first time we saw it!
I came home with a very full heart, feeling completely refreshed. It was such a sweet time to re-connect and catch up with each other. If I could offer one piece of advice to first time parents – TAKE A BABYMOON. It is good for the soul.
