Gabe and I are celebrating our 10 year anniversary this year and were lucky enough to take a trip to the Florida Keys to commemorate the occasion. We spent a lot of time reflecting all of the adventures, challenges, and sweet moments of the last decade. We hotel hopped and scouted out kitschy diners on our way from Key Largo to Key West.
The trip highlight was scuba diving and snorkeling some of the shallow reefs. Gabe is an avid diver. We went with a dive group out about 5 miles from shore and while Gabe went down with the divers I was snorkeling by myself and came face to face with a giant nurse shark! We've done cage dives with sharks before, but nothing compares to the adrenaline rush of seeing one while you are floating in the middle of the ocean alone. I also saw a sting ray and countless parrot fish.

Hemmingway is a favorite author, so we made a trip to his home in Key West. We then drove back to Miami for our final two nights. We went Latin dancing and ate divine food in fashionable South Beach. I just love when we can have memorable moments like this together. Here's to the next 10 years!
