when life gives you lemons * gainesville, florida family photographer

months ago we booked a trip to england and scotland for a family wedding. we were so excited to travel overseas, show our boys the british isles and reunite with relatives. but out of nowhere a volcano erupts in iceland blowing volcanic ash and shutting down airports all over Europe. our trip gets completely cancelled. who would have ever thought this could happen to our vacay? so we scramble and look for alternate destinations. and within hours, we are in the car driving to our new vacation spot, vero beach. you got to love living in florida and the ease of finding a sunny and sandy locale. we stayed at the vero beach hotal & spa and the hotel was chic, family friendly and right on the beach.  and the town was quiet and sleepy - the perfect place to relax, recharge and reconnect. we spent lazy days at the pool and in the ocean.  and although a completely different trip then we planned, it was a wonderful, peaceful vacation for my family.  exactly what we needed.
