Will and I took a nice vacation as a couple about four months after Emma was born. It was great to get away and just relax and have some nice dinners out. We stayed at the One Bal Harbour in a Deluxe Suite. The suite is very spacious with an incredible view overlooking the ocean.
The suite had a full kitchen and an espresso maker which always makes me very happy.
We were welcomed with a delicious treat from Stefanie from One Bal Harbour!
There was a hidden TV in the mirror so we could watch the news while we got ready in the morning.
We went to dinner at Carpaccio at the Bal Harbour shops which is a very nice high end open air shopping center with lots of great restaurants. I got the prawns which were fantastic and will got Veal which he still talks about to this day. We will definitely dine there again.
We chose this weekend because there was a mango festival at the Fairchild Botanical Gardens. We had never been to a mango festival but it was something my husband has wanted to do for some time now so I decided to surprise him with this idea. He does landscaping for a living and was also very excited to get to see the Fairchild Botanical Gardens. It was a very hot, muggy and rainy day but that did not stop the mango festival from filling up with crowds of people. There was plenty of food demonstrations and mango trees to purchase. We walked around and took tons of pictures of the incredible plants and flowers. It was a short two days but a nice first getaway after Emma was born!
