Two weeks ago I was lucky enough to go on a girl’s trip to Key West, Florida with three of my girlfriends. Now, I have to tell you I was counting the days until I was able to jump on the plane and head down south. I haven’t been on a true girl’s trip since my bachelorette party three years ago, so it was something I was SO looking forward to!
Michelle, Cass and I took the first flight out on Friday morning and landed in sunny Key West still early enough to catch some sun, take some fun photos and start drinking cocktails. Christie met us just in time to head out to get tacos and bar hop on Duval Street. PS If you’re heading to Key West do your best to get reservations at Aqua to catch a fun drag show!

We spent one afternoon grabbing brunch at Blue Macaw where we chowed down on fish tacos and made bloody marys at a build-your-own-bloody-mary bar and listened to live music. After we ate, we walked around the town. Key West is the CUTEST! Bright colorful buildings, ice cream shops, live music on the street corners, and really fun bars.
We ate dinner one night at Louie’s Backyard. It is an AMAZING old Victorian house on the sand that was converted into a restaurant and patio bar. Food was incredible and view was amazing which made for an unforgettable night.
We decided to charter a catamaran one of the days….all I can say, is it was the best day we had. We drank champagne, paddle boarded, swam in warm waters, laid in the sun and celebrated Miss Cass’ 25th birthday. We finished the day eating conch fritters (local fav and SO good) and oysters.
The trip was incredible, and I would head back to Key West in a heartbeat! But the best thing that came out of it was that I have developed such great relationships with these amazing women. I have been lucky enough to have a beautifully strong group of girlfriends surround me through out my life and to be able to add three strong women as true friends into my life is truly a blessing. Blogging has brought some incredible things to me in the last 10 months, but the greatest thing has been true friendships.
Hope you all have a wonderful week!
