{islamorada}


Some friends of ours from Israel have come to visit.  They want to get married on the beach in the Keys like we did 8 years ago, so we have taken them to Islamorada.  Our favorite place to stay when here is Cheeca Lodge, but the resort is closed due to devastation from a fire & is due to reopen this summer.  We had to make reservations at someplace we had never been to before, and the little cottage we are renting is a pleasant surprise.  Clean and renovated, 3 bedrooms and a full kitchen and living room.  I love a clean white hotel bedroom:


Last night the group of us went to Lorelai--the local outdoor restaurant and watering hole which always has a live band.  They were playing a mix of reggae and rock!  Hubby loves to dance and couldn't resist.  He got a little crowd to get up and dance with him.  Notice the little one clapping for him in the background:

I gave myself a new spring pedicure for the occasion!  
(p.s.  These new flip-flops from ON are just like Havaianas--same exact feel and actually fit better! They are so pretty & are highly recommended--come in lots of colors and metallics!!)

Tonight at sunset the intimate wedding will take place under the palm trees outside!  Then we'll be off to Pierre's for a fabulous dinner!

I adore the Florida Keys. It's so relaxing and beautiful there. They have the most charming boutiques too.

Will they be getting married under a huppah? I LOVE Jewish weddings. Sending wedding blessings for a beautiful ceremony.

What color are your toes?! I had mine done last weekend in Essie Exotic Liras. Usually I stick with red but bright pink seemed so spring-like.
I wish my husband would like to dance. I end up dancing with girlfriends or elderly men.

Mrs K ~~ It is Pines and Palms Resort. Not as ritzy as Cheeca, but charming in an old Florida way!

CashmereLibrarian ~~ My favorite favorite red ever--"OPI Red"!

What fun ~ I'm so envious of your pedi and sockless feet! :) Some day in the future mine will see the light of day and temps that don't freeze! Love the shorts your hubby has on.
