welcome to MIAMI

miami beach exceeded all expectations.
from the minute we arrived, we had the best time!
all i ever ask my husband for my birthday // christmas// anniversary 
is to take me somewhere i haven't been before.. and he is pretty good at
obliging! {but he breaks the rules and also gets me gifts on top of the trip..
no more of that, chase!} i've been to different parts of florida, but never miami. 
so, this trip was given to me as part of my birthday present two weeks ago. 
my cute husband and parents had planned it together as a surprise, 
and i'm so glad they did! it was so fun to meet up with my parents 
in such a great location and explore + relax for a few days. 
i already miss it! i loved the bright colors, the incredibly blue ocean, the
music, how warm the water was, the thick white sand, the culture, the beautiful
spanish accent people use, the warm nights, the bridges and inlets, the keys, the
skyline, the art deco hotels, the relaxed feel, and the place we got to stay. 
here are a few photos of our days in miami..a guide + video is on the way!
 so happy that i got to be with my mom on mother's day!
we all gave her a book of our recent family trip to laguna beach.
 mother's day brunch at the big pink.
relaxing at the pool 
^^ cute mom + cute husband ^^
 lots of unique cuban food..yum!
^^ the view from our room..and breakfast on the patio! ^^
^^ the day we biked 40 miles -- didn't quite know what we were in for! ^^
^^ loving downtown miami, but thumbs down to the heat..he's not a lebron fan! ^^
biking down to key biscane
^^ just casually saw a peacock with it's feathers fanned out while biking.. incredible!! ^^
^^ easily our favorite food spot in all of miami. most amazing empanadas! ^^
