Good morning! I hope your week is going well. I am back from a nice long trip to my old stomping grounds in Florida and it was wonderful. My husband has been working a lot lately so it was nice to have a weekend away to spend time together.
We spent two days on Amelia Island enjoying the sights, eating at old favorites and new, including Bar Zin Bistro and Wine Bar and the famous T-Ray Burger Station and visiting friends.
Then we moved over to the Sawgrass Marriott, home of The Players Championship to sit by the pool, relax and attend a wedding. If you are looking for a premier resort and spa and are going to be in the Jacksonville area you should definitely check out the Sawgrass Marriott.
The grounds are stunning, the golf course world re-known and the rooms and villas beautiful and comfortable. I have stayed here a few times before and I love it more with each visit.
The weather was perfect and not at all typical for this time of year, it was sunny, there was no humidity, and just the right temperature to sit at the pool. I cannot remember the last time I sat by the pool, read and relaxed; I think it is going to be something I do a little more often.
The wedding was beautiful, after all is there anything that embodies faith, hope and love more than a wedding?
Sadly, during the wedding we found out that our friend passed away of a heart attack that morning and it did take a lot of the joy out of the day because after the news it was all we could think about.
I hope that you have a good day and remember, life is fragile so tell those you care about that you love them and give them a hug.
NOTE: I was not compensated in anyway by the Marriott Corporation or the Sawgrass resort, my opinions are my own.
