It has been a few weeks since my vacation. I have been a complete slacker at getting a post typed up about it. Things have been a little crazy since we got back. Brad's great aunt is very sick and they had to call in hospice. Brad's brother is getting married this Saturday. Work, work, and more work. Oh and then I decided to start selling this amazing product called It Works.
Back to the vacation. Brad and I went to Orange Beach, Alabama to celebrate our 1 year weadding anniversary. His aunt has a condo on the beach and is so sweet to let us go use it. Orange Beach is about an 8 1/2 hour drive from where we live in Arkansas so it really isn't bad at all. I was so ready to go on a vacation - the timing couldn't have been more perfect. The weather on the other hand didn't exactly cooperate with us. You go to the beach to get a tan...not come back from vacation and immediately go to the tanning bed. Other than that I have no complaints. We had an amazing time together.
