Guest Post: The Honeymoon Edition!

My dear friend Jenna took time out of her super crazy schedule (she is planning a wedding as well as trying to lead a normal life) to write me a guest post.  And boy am I glad she did!

Hellllloooo lovely readers of Laura's blog!

Laura and I thought it would be fun if I did a post that was relative to why she asked for guest posts! 

Going on a holiday!! 

But in this case, I wanted to share where I would like to go on my honeymoon, since I am newly engaged! Woo hoo! My wedding is a year away and it is VERY low budget so we will be staying close to home. Which I am 100% okay with because I don't think you have to travel outside of the country to have a fabulous honeymoon. Granted...since I've never had one before this is all based on assumption. 

I live in Jacksonville, FL and we are are lucky to live close (within an hour) to a little city called St. Augustine. Have you heard of it before? 

St. Augustine, FL is the nation's oldest city! That may not SOUND like the most sought after destination for a honeymoon but there is so much charm and history in the small city. Not to mention all of the Bed and Breakfast's in the town are pretty breathtaking all in their own right.

If you're curious about the history of St. Augustine here's a short little summary of how it came to be.  http://www.oldcity.com/history-and-culture.php

And it goes without saying that there will be live music being played somewhere on St. George Street which is THE place to go when you visit. 

I've always wanted to have a little weekend getaway and stay in one of the B&B's (one of the ones that ISN'T haunted...because apparently a lot of them are!) and not have to worry about finding a parking spot close to the center of it all or getting to a little store before it closes. I want to have a whole weekend, be parked in the parking lot of a B&B, and walk wherever our hearts desire. 

Take a little trip with me and let me show you around!

Seriously?? The photos look like they should be in a travel magazine! 

This is 45 minutes away from me...yes I think I'll be taking my honeymoon close to home.

Honeymoon or not...where would you like to take a little mini-getaway to? 

Thanks for reading!

That looks like such a sweet place!  When I come and visit you in real life Jenna, I think we’ll have to take a roadtrip out that way.  Looks gorgeous!!
