...you can live in a state for 35 years and still end up in places you never knew existed and the whole world opens up and changes!
What a gem we found in Anna Maria Island, just south of Bradenton, Florida.
Started out with a cute little motel (dog friendly, I might add)
Yes, Virginia, there is a bathroom that's smaller than the one we have at home. (But very nicely done!)
Progressed to awesome restaurants and shops, or in this case a restaurant/shop that I know will appeal to many of you vintagey, shabby, chic, antiquey types.
Lots of pretty little houses and cottages.
Not to mention topping it all off with a wedding in a small chapel, followed by a beachside reception that was just as perfect as the couple who just tied the knot.
Congratulations to Heather and Scott!
