New Smyrna Beach

One of my best friends,Ashlee, and I met 5 years ago during an internship at the Pierre Chamber of Commerce. Our offices were right next door to each other and we had so much fun going on walks, tanning and hanging out at Tia's (her Aunt's) historical Norbeck House home. Ashlee is originally from Florida and now she lives in North Carolina. We always make it a point to stay in touch and keep up with each other's family and friend's lives. Her family is like the Kardashian clan with three sisters and a younger brother and a house full of drama (I love it). My family is fun and fast so she fits right in.

The last time we saw each other was over a year ago at my wedding where Ashlee was one of my bridesmaids. So we scheduled a trip to sunny Florida to spend a weekend at the beach relaxing and catching up in the sunny rays right on the Atlantic Ocean. We booked a room thru the site AirBnB, where hosts post open rooms, apartments or whole houses for short time renting to those travelers who would prefer to not stay in a stuffy hotel. I was a little skeptical. But we found a house in New Smyrna Beach (The House on Crawford) that suited our needs perfect. It was only a few blocks from the beach and near NSB's downtown area called Flager.

Since Ashlee grew up in South Florida and went to school less than an hour from NSB, it was a perfect location to meet up and enjoy. We rode the house's beach cruises primarily to all of our destinations. The beach was literally a block from the house and we spent all day Saturday and Sunday getting bronzed. It was amazing. We also pampered ourselves with a mani/pedi at a local spa and caught some town gossip. Sunday morning, we got up early to see the sunrise over the Atlantic and it was one of the prettiest things I have ever seen. We also indulged in delicious food and sweets and had a great weekend. I hope we can try to do these girls trips every year because they are definitely worth it! Miss Florida and Ashlee already.
