Oh, Give Thanks!

The Hubby and I spent our first Thanksgiving in Florida; we were really excited to see our friends and family. However, the drive going there was brutal, we hit a ton of traffic and anyone who knows me knows that I fall asleep so easily while driving. Good thing I was able to help my hubby out and drive for at least 4 hours…whoot whoot!!

Road trips are the absolute best!! They make for great conversations and are SO MUCH better than flying places (I feel). This road trip marked our two months being married to each other which has been a wonderful two months. The hubby and I have been learning a lot about each other. I’m really thankful for my husband’s patience; It takes a lot to put up with me haha (I would know) but God has helped us grow in so many ways. This weekend was more than just giving thanks for each other and great company, it was for everything our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ did for us and is still doing. He is forever faithful!! Amen!!

Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good!

For His mercy endures forever.
Oh, give thanks to the God of gods!
    For His mercy endures forever.
Oh, give thanks to the Lord of lords!
    For His mercy endures forever:

To Him who alone does great wonders,
    For His mercy endures forever ~Psalm 136

Florida is a nice place but I wouldn’t want to live there (sorry friends haha). It is TOO HOT there and I’m Canadian so the cold is what feels like home. Good thing Georgia is a mix of both!!! We got to hang out with our dear friends in Florida and we did quite a bit!! On Thanksgiving day the hubby and I helped our friends through a thanksgiving drive. We helped a church put food together and it was delivered to various parts of the South Florida neighborhood. Then we had a lot of Turkey & Ham ourselves in a relative’s home and our friends church (unfortunately I forgot to take a picture of that). It was sooo much food and our tummies were very much full haha.

The next day our friends took us to an Island; we got on this ferry and the coolest part was getting off the ferry and just putting our bare feet in the warm sand. We collected a lot of sea shells. Lunch was at a delicious burger place (Ford’s Garage) with a great garage feel to it!! The hubby took pictures of the men’s bathroom and it was quite creative the set up haha. In the evening we saw the new James Bond movie and I hate to admit it but it was pretty good (Jensen you win). Our final day in Florida consisted of going to a cousins wedding (one of the primary reasons we travelled to Florida). We drove out to Tampa and spent the day there celebrating the couple and making memories.

I know I rambled quickly about our road trip but the pictures below speak louder than my words!! Enjoy!
