Just us, a tropical storm, an island, and a few fish


It was crazy.
We nearly drowned. Twice.
I almost crashed our boat.
We outran thunderstorms and massive waves and tropical storm weather.
We waded through a foot of water to get to our cabin.
Changed two flat tires.
Almost lost an anchor, broke a fishing pole (his favorite), and were tossed about like a toy boat in a bathtub full of splashing toddlers.

But...we did catch some fish.
And we ate them and they were delicious.
Even more miraculous than that, we still love each other madly (you have to be a little mad to be us).
We determined to make the best of it.

Because marriage, like life, isn't always easy, but when the going gets hard you just gotta love harder.

Sometimes the best memories are the craziest, most adventurous ones, right? ;) SO glad you got some time alone with your love - that time is precious and much needed with little ones in tow.
