rhine riviera

I'm {proudly} from the gulf coast of Florida.  Which means I like my water at bath temperature.  Jumping in the Rhine was a big step for my west coast FL loving heart.  The hardest part was jumping in.  Once in, I was happy as a clam ... it was refreshing.  The current moves you down so quickly too - it was a little like a lazy river.  
We took my olympus underwater camera which was JB's first ever Christmas present to me way back when.
{scared.  anticipating the cold.}
{happy. can't wait for the cold!}
{even though i'm scared of the chilly temps... what do i do?  glace. i can't resist}

love you rhine riviera.  
see you soon.

  1. This looks like so much fun! Reminds me of floating the river in Texas...but classier.
    Also, I spent at least a minute staring at your ring. GORGEOUS.

  6. Umm, Sarah? Is that really your wedding ring in that ice cream picture??

    And is that really your body in the swimsuit picture???

    I'm going to go vomit up my breakfast now. (no I'm not. the cheerios were delicious, and I don't regret them.)

  7. Gorgeous pictures!!
    Love your wedding ring!
    You two are so cute.
    But, I don't appreciate the picture of you in the bikini. I think you may have single handedly given me an eating disorder.

  8. That is awesome! I love being in the water...although Lake Michigan is cold, too. Love your swimsuit and you are so lucky you can pull of aviators!! Anyone in my near vicinity cracks up when I try to sport mine...

  12. I grew up around Lake Michigan too, with the icy cold streams all around. :)
    You are beautiful as always! I can't wait to see the Rhine. 11 more months and my husband gets 18 days off. Europe here I come!

  16. That sounds so fun! I could use some cold water to jump into here in New York! Somehow the Hudson just doesn't seem quite so inviting...or clean ;)

  41. You so purttyyyy :).
    I too am not a cold beach lover.
    And here in California. Our water (in my opinion) freezes the fat off you. Seriously I just don't get it. It is rarely ever above freezing.
    But it sure is nice to lay out and read a good book :).
