|Mr. and Mrs. Scott Boone|
Scott graduated from high school and attended the same university as my oldest daughter, Lauren. When Lauren studied abroad in Austria in Spring 2013, Scott and Lauren's friend Jenn packed up Lauren's items in her apartment and moved them to a storage unit. We have also attended the same church as Scott's family for more than 15 years and have gone on church trips together. So when Scott announced his engagement last year and his fiance's family lives in Florida, it became a "Destination Wedding"!
I turned a car trip to Florida into a Spring vacation:
|My first stop was to visit my youngest daughter at her sorority event at Ole Miss in Oxford, Mississippi.|
|After spending the evening in Oxford, I then drove to Hoover, Alabama and spent the night with Jana, one of my best friends and sorority sister from college at Arkansas State University.|
|Amazing chicken tacos with pasta salad, fried okra, sweet potato chips and french fries at The Boot At The Grove in Hoover, Alabama!|
|I arrived at the condo in Panama City Beach, Florida after first accidentally booking a hotel room in Panama City, Panama.|
|My daughter, Sara, and her boyfriend, Will, joined me in Florida.|
|Our amazing condo offered two separate swimming pools, a hot tub, a view of the ocean from our balcony and full beach access!|
|I love the white sand and blue water of the Gulf Coast!|
