    What a gorgeous post! I went to Flagler College and lived in St. Augustine for 4 years. Met my husband there! We live in DC now and miss it! Such a sweet little city, thank you for posting :)


  2. Whitney

    Ohhh the candy apples and the green shutters!
    All beautiful!

    Well aren't you the cutest soon-to-be Mom! You're glowing!

  3. @bailey! i am so jealous! what was it like living there? i wonder about all the tourists and crowds since it's so small. but it's also so quaint and beautiful, i don't think i'd mind them! hope you get to visit often!


  4. That looks like a fun place to explore! Those caramel apples look delicious!
    ps. how do you get your hair to look so beautifully wavey like that?

  5. oooo i looove st augustine too! everything there is so cute!

  6. all the photos are so cute and so fall! ps – i guess you are one of those people who gain a total of, like, 4 lbs. while pregnant? :)

  7. bailey

    naomi, it was amazing living there! funny though, Flagler gives tours of it's beautiful dining room which was also our dining hall. freshman year, we'd be all sleepy coming to breakfast and there'd be tourists with cameras everywhere!! glad you enjoyed the oldest city!

  8. amber

    i just love looking at your photos. it looks like you guys had a great time :)

    p.s. what kind of camera do you guys use?

    My husband and I visited St. Augustine for the first time in May.

    It was wonderful! Didn't you just love how historic and charming it felt? Did you by chance visit the museum?
    The beaches were so beautiful there, and I loved, loved the little downtown area with all the adorable shops. We got some wonderful fudge. My husband insisted that we move there someday, but my heart is in the mountains.

  10. Wow it looks beautiful!!! I love that house! =)

  11. Chloé

    I LOVE St. Augustine! My husband's parents live in Jacksonville and we took a short trip to St. Augustine once but we didn't even get to get out of the car. I had the same reaction: I want to live here!!! It is so charming. Your pictures of it are beautiful and you are too adorable with your pregnant belly!

  12. that's where i got married! i grew up in jacksonville beach. i love st. aug!

  13. Katz NYC

    I live in Jacksonville Beach! Been in Florida my whole life, there's nothing like the east coast of Florida. Hope you're having a great time! Once it starts snowing in D.C. you'll want to come back :)

  27. Kalen

    Those candy apples made my mouth water!

  28. I'm another Flagler grad (living in the DC burbs) and St. Augustine is a magical place. It is so beautiful! I never once took all the historic buildings, packed streets, and beautiful scenery for granted! I was in awe everyday, and everyday I found something new I loved about the place.

    I loved the pictures, for a moment I was transported back to the Oldest City!


  29. Too funny!! I was in St. Augustine Saturday afternoon as well. We were attending a wedding there and I honestly had the thought "I wonder if they came here on their vacay"! Funnily enough we were there at the same time. :) Love the pics!

  30. Kate

    I wish we lived in an era where you could still give caramel/candy apples to trick-or-treaters! I want to DIY some of those m & m covered apples asap.

  31. woah awesome pics, love the candy apples!!!!BTW if you have time feel free to stop by my blog I am having some awesome giveaways going on!

  32. Jessica

    Another Flagler grad here living in DC. Is there something in the water? Naomi, you're so cute! What are you going to be for halloween this year?

  33. Jessica

    PS – Because Husband and I lived in St. Augustine after we got married. Our doggie's name is "Ponce de Leon"! :-)

  34. Annie

    wah I want to eat one of those RIGHT NOW!!

  35. Look at the SIZE of those toffee apples! I so badly want one now!

  36. Amanda

    I've loooved these past couple of posts! I went to Flagler then lived in Jacksonville for a few years after. I'm glad you enjoyed your time in FL!

  37. melissa

    Can I just say… I love your hair. Please tell us your secret! (products, tools, etc. you better not say "it's natural") Looks like you guys had a lovely time. Love the pictures :)

  38. OH MY WORD…you are possibly the prettiest pregnant woman EVER! You're pictures are beautiful & make me so happy it's FALL!

  39. OH MY WORD…you are possibly the prettiest pregnant woman EVER! You're pictures are beautiful & make me so happy it's FALL!

  40. Nikki

    Such a cute post! Love all the pics of Florida. Kingsley fits right in!


  41. Em & Gar

    I spent some time there too a few years back! I LOVED that place! There was also a very delicious little gelato shop there where I'm pretty sure I tried every flavor they had. I had almost forgotten about that…glad your cute pics could remind me! :) xo

  42. Esther

    Naomi you and your husband are all together lovely!

  43. hello, i've just stumbled upon your blog & i instantly adored it! gorgeous photography.

    i've never been to st. aug but i'd love to go. it looks so charming. enjoy the rest of your stay!

  44. cara.

    from now on, can you tell us where you're clothes are from–specifically the skirt you're wearing. if it's stretchy, i want.

  45. jay.

    We went there for our 1st anniversary and completely fell in love with it. This post made my heart swell. We want to live there too, I don't think any other place in the world would make me as happy.

  46. Ruth

    This is my hometown!! I grew up there and lived on Anastasia Island (right by the Alligator Farm) until I moved to Los Angeles 5 years ago. But my mom and dad still live there and I love going back for holidays. It really is a beautiful, sweet little town, and I think I only fully appreciated for what it is after I moved away. I love Los Angeles, it's my home now, but someday I may end up back in "St. Auggie", I miss the fresh seafood! So glad you got to visit. :) Take care,

  47. Brooke

    Is there any other way to eat an apple? so cute. xo

  48. Kelsi

    St. Augustine is like a teeny tiny, less dirty/smelly/drunk New Orleans. SO gorgeous. Oh, and you are gorgeous too. :)

  49. you are absolutely adorable! how come you look amazing in whatever you throw on? ps i want your striped skirt!!! :)

    hope you guys have a fabulous day!
    love, lindsey

  50. Chelsea

    St. George Street is so fun!
    Glad you all are having a great time :)

  52. Meg

  56. Those candy apples look amazing!

  57. Luna

    so nice. i have to visit there someday. thanks for posting.

  58. Even though I've lived in South Florida for all 32 years of my life, I have never ventured up north to St. Augustine. This post has convinced me I need to change that, and soon. Great pictures! :D

  59. Colleen

    You're lookin' beautiful with your bump lady! Florida gets so cool the more I learn about the town and history, like Miami and the art deco architecture it sports. Glad you had fun!

  60. oh this is so great! i'm from a beach town just south of there and i love st. augustine!

    if you get to go back, you should check out the tasties at gaufres and goods on aviles st., right off the main tourist area. they have the most delicious waffles and polish food i've had besides what my grandma used to cook! not to mention it's adorable and very quaint.

    i hope you and your family enjoyed your stay!

  61. wow I never knew Florida was so cute and quaint. And your hair looks great…not to mention your cute growing belly :)

  62. You are officially THE cutest little pregnant woman I've ever seen.

  86. jesslope

    shoes info? where are the shoes from? please and thank you.

  87. @jesslope, what shoes are you talking about? i don't see any in these photos… sorry!

  88. Annie

    a post about St. Augustine! yay!!! I have been visiting there since I was born and it is absolutely one of my favorite places. I almost went to Flagler (too bad I didn't from what @bailey said) It looks like you guys had such a great time. My favorite memory is going to this restaurant/store that had the best vegetable soup and then there was a court yard filled with ducks, roosters and other birds…pretty weird, but totally awesome!

  89. i love that photo of the door and window against the pink wall…it's positively dreamy & has such a great composition. and you look (or, looked) beautiful! you look so different these days but you're beautiful every which way.
