This weekend, Eddie and I drove down with my family to my Grandparents' house in Florida. I was excited to be able to go and take Eddie because he'd never been. I hadn't even been since we started dating three years ago so I was looking forward to going, too. As soon as we got there, a wave of memories flooded over me. It was strange to be somewhere that I hadn't visited for a few life seasons and for it to be so very familiar. I'm quite thankful that we got to go, even if it was for a short time!
Our trip consisted of catching up, relaxing, exploring familiar places, and having a mini Christmas celebration since they won't be coming up to Atlanta this year. It was a sweet little trip packed full of family time...and a lot of amazing food :)
I've been carrying around our Instax camera lately and took a handful of photos during our trip. I love watching them slowly develop and seeing the permanent memory that they each hold. The tree in front of my Grandparents' house where my sisters and cousins used to play, my handsome man, family, special spots on the beach...they feel like instant keepsakes.
Looking forward to going back again!
