Honey Moon According To Ashleigh

Many of you have been asking me “where are the pictures from your honey moon”…well this post is for you! Kent and I spent a beautiful week in West Palm Beach FL. We picked up a little Fiat (which I thought said “Flat”..) and cruised all over Southern FL.

The first dozen or so pictures were from when we ventured to the Everglades where we took a boat tour and encountered a gator on the side of the road. Kenton made a song about this particular gator which he named, Gator Bill. The lyrics are simple and they just keep repeating… “Gator Bill was a gator Gator Bill was a gator”. We survived being four feet away from a gator.

The next outing was when we went kayaking at a State Park. It was a gorgeous day. We saw beautiful birds peeking out of the mangrove trees. There was a particular mangrove canal you could paddle through that we LOVED. We put some worship music on and relaxed in the still water of the canal as we paddled. It started raining and we had our cameras on the kayak with us. We rushed back as fast as we could to shore through the choppy lake. The cameras survived yet another adventure.

The last pictures were from The Country Lion Safari. We drove the little Fiat amongst the zebras, ostriches, rhinos, tortoises, and many other four legged creatures on the plains. The bummer was that the lions were fenced in? I think so. We drove that car right next to a bull bigger than it. I spotted a baby rhino and then the baby and it’s mommy decided to run right in front of our car. As we drove our way around we witnessed a super sick zebra smack down. Two zebras began whacking each other with their heads. Dirt rose into the air and the whole herd ran passed our car. Totally awesome. We saw chimps from afar and witnessed their creepy form of communication.

We had many laughs on our honeymoon. Mostly because my husband is hilarious and we saw some pretty wild things. The honeymoon was not just a fun time, it was also challenging. We both want to continue to grow deeper together and with the Lord. There were some tough things that we had to discuss in order to keep up healthy communication. Each day we need to apologize and forgive each other. We are both broken people being refined daily by Jesus Christ. I married the kindest and most honest man alive, though. He blesses me each day with how thoughtful and caring he is. One thing in particular that he initiated on our honeymoon was to sit down and make a list of goals. These goals were for us as couple and individually. He wanted to take time out at the very beginning of our marriage to set goals in our lives. Nothing is more uplifting than praying with my husband and dreaming about what God wants to do.

We are so blessed not to have a horror story of a honeymoon, like we’ve both heard about. We enjoyed each moment of it, even the hard ones. It was a blast over all, but the end of the week we were SO excited to get home and start our lives off together in the “real world”.
