As many of you know, Cory and I went on our long-awaited honeymoon just a couple of weeks ago to St. Pete Beach, Florida. I’m going to preface this entire post by saying, if you ever get the chance to go to St. Pete Beach, GO! It’s such a beautiful area and I would honestly go back in a heart beat. It is a little touristy, but that’s exactly what we were on this trip, tourists, so I didn’t mind.
On our trip, we vowed to stray from social media as much as possible. We decided SnapChat (I’m sunnysprinkle if you’re looking) was acceptable, but no Facebook or Instagram. I may have snuck in one Instagram post or two, but who’s counting! I loved that we both agreed (for the most part) to take a little social media hiatus during our trip.
That didn’t stop me from snapping an excessive amount of photos, though! However, most of those photos were taken with my iPhone and I’m not too proud of how few photos I took with my DSLR. I’m actually really bummed that I didn’t have my DSLR with me on some of our walks and while we were down by the beach. Talk about a blogger fail, right?
However, I must say, that putting away the camera, for the most part, did lead me to really be more in the moment and focus more on trying to mentally remember every detail possible. It was almost comforting to not be completely enthralled in the confines and expectations of the digital age we live in!
This is what I got, though, because of it! I’ll follow-up with some more photos Cory took of me at sunset as well as a compilation of all of the grainy, poor-quality iPhone photos I took. So be on the look-out!
In short, if you haven’t gone on a honeymoon yet, go on one. Sure, it’s an added expense and it costs money, but it’s an investment in your marriage and your relationship. You won’t regret it, trust me. And I must add, after 3 months of fertility treatments, it felt really good to take the month off and not worry about all of that and the disappointment that usually follows.
How long after your wedding did you go on your honeymoon?
