We celebrated our second wedding anniversary at the end of May by taking a trip to Florida. We stayed a few days with Matt's good friend from Kirksville, Spencer, and his wife Nikki, who now live in Sarasota. We spent one day at nearby Siesta Key Beach, which had just been named the Best Beach in the US (as Spencer frequently reminded us!!) :) It was great, I could've stayed there all day.

After leaving their house, we decided to take our time getting back home by stopping at 2 more beaches on the way - Clearwater and Jacksonville. We had a great time people-watching and relaxing. It was fun to see both the Gulf and the Atlantic sides of Florida, but we couldn't decide which we liked better. The Gulf is very relaxing and calming, while the Atlantic has lots of big waves.

Happy anniversary!! Eating out at a restaurant along the boardwalk.
