Dreaming of a Getaway

What's the Word June
Today's word is: ( key lime pie )

 Strangely, I cannot find any photos from this trip. 21,000 photos on my hard drive dating back to 2004
and not one from my Key West trip... any ideas, Christopher?

Five and a half years ago, my husband and I took our first and only trip down to Key West. This trip was special in so many ways: our good friends Kevin and Lori were getting married, it was our first trip together as a married couple without children tagging along (we didn't even have a honeymoon), and (sadly) it was also the last time to date that we've taken a trip together as a married couple without children.

I love my children... but I also need to reconnect with my husband sometimes, too.
( And honey, dinner and bowling once a year is great, but just not enough. )

Key West is something else. We indulged in some great food. We relaxed and had a few drinks at a couple of laid back bars. We rented a scooter and toured the island (obviously not in that order). We took our pictures at the southernmost point of the US. We saw our good friends get married in a picturesque ceremony next to a lighthouse. We stayed in the smallest, cutest most quaint hotel room on Duval Street. But the one thing I remember most vividly about Key West (I mean, besides the gorgeous wedding, Lori) is this: Frozen Key Lime Pie Dipped in Chocolate On A Stick. Never since that weekend have I eaten such a memorable dessert. I've never seen them sold anywhere else. You can order them here, but I just can't justify purchasing a dozen bars for $114.95 even if it does taste like heaven on a stick.

I'm rambling...

And I guess I don't have a point to this, either. I'm just dreaming of a getaway. Just me and my Man, my daydreams took me back to our Key West trip and those yummy Frozen Key Lime Pies Dipped in Chocolate on a Stick.

  1. Now they have a restaurant calle Better Than Sex. Everyone raves about it. It's a dessert place I think. So something else to dream about...
