#mamaandlilycrystalrivervacay

spring break in miami was canceled

two weeks in portugal with my family in early june was also canceled

so before summer is over and school starts again, Lily and i drove down to inverness florida where we quarantined at a house with a pool with our K

why crystal river area?

well, i have been curious about that area and wanting to visit three sisters springs for quite some time

i also didn’t want a drive longer than 9-10 hours

our airbnb in inverness was exactly what we had hoped it would be

maybe even better

a great house in a super quiet neighborhood with a screened in pool and big lanai

we spent most of our time at home in the pool however, we did get to venture out to three sisters (beautiful), went out to eat a few times and checked out a local produce market

it was the perfect quiet and relaxing getaway

happy friday friends

ps- i love this post so much because it’s filled with all the miami pool blue and it’s been a long time since it has had any of that color/feeling and it’s still the best and the one i love the most

waking up in inverness was the total opposite of waking up in asheville. it was quiet

three sisters springs

a sunday in isla morada

on this particular sunday, Jocey picked me up at our airbnb and then we grabbed the girls from their sleepover at Savannah’s house

we packed the car up with snacks and beach towels and headed south towards Lorelei in isla morada where we had spent many of good times kayaking when we lived in miami

once at Lorelei, we were told that no water activities were taking place due to winds and a storm that was in the horizon

we needed water

either a beach or a pool

two stops later we found the perfect little hangout place that from the outside seemed like the unlikeliest of choices

the girls swam in the pool, Jocey and i hung out in the sun, we ate delicious fried fish….

it was exactly the kind of sunday we had hoped for and needed

no luck at lorelei but at least we got to see our mermaid friend and remember amazing times

at our secret new found spot

miami. spring break twenty nineteen. part two

our first morning at our airbnb, was spent at the pool with Savannah

it felt like old times

it felt organic and how things should be

me with the girls in water

it is how i think of Lily with her miami bff

i always think of them in water

after some much needed pool time and vitamin d, we went and grabbed lunch at a very familiar place to us

also surrounded by water

which also felt organic and what the norm should be

because being surrounded by water is what feels organic and normal to me

no matter how long i live in these mountains for, not a day goes by when i don’t long for that to be the norm again

happy friday and happy mother’s day to you mamas!!!!

views i miss waking up to

lunch at our usual with amazing views
