On the Docks of Aruba

 

Aruba has the bluest water I have ever beheld. These photos were taken on the dock of the private island waiting for the boat to come pick us up! The weather was so nice, warm with a light sea breeze. It never rained on us- apparently it doesn’t rain much in Aruba. There were no bugs- something I was concerned about going into our trip- especially because of Zika. But it was great!

As we were waiting for the boat, we would just sit there and look in the water. It was so clear, it was like watching Finding Nemo! You could see everything. We saw little crabs, anemones, clear fish, yellow fish, mini sword fish, bigger fish, and pelicans! It was so cool.

Also, if you haven’t noticed, I really like ruffles, which is why I am so glad that when I walked through H&M the other day, there was a ruffle theme going on. <3 My top is actually an “off the shoulder” top, but I don’t like “off the shoulder” tops, so I wear it like a normal shirt, which is fun because it makes the ruffles even bigger! I especially liked my finds down below.

XOXO,

Nick and I celebrated our first anniversary in Aruba. It was a dream.

We had so much fun! I can’t wait to share more photos of the hotel we stayed at because I would highly recommend it. Stay tuned for a future post. But the sand was so soft, and the water was so blue- like turquoise. It was warm, there were no waves, hammocks everywhere, palm trees, smoothie service, and a gentle breeze. Clearly we were in paradise.

It was amazing to be out on a private island and to relax. We can’t believe how fast one year of marriage has come and gone. It’s wonderful to be married to your best friend because you can help lift each other up during the hard times and the best times.

Many of you have complimented my swimsuit. I love shopping and finding cute, modest, and affordable fashion, so I created this little lookbook down below. Don’t be surprised if you see me rocking a few of these this summer. I especially want the one from H&M. Aren’t they adorable!?

XOXO,
