:: no place like home

I don't know about you, but for this ol' bird there is no place like home.

I had a wonderful time on Oak Island with my family this past week.

I felt the sand between my toes, the salt on my skin & in my hair,

did I mention the sand between my toes....the sand in my bed,

the sand on the floors....the sand....the sand...the sand.

I don't think I make a very good surfer girl.

Now, my hubs and my kids....that's a different story.

Every year my kids are ready to pack up and move to the coast full time,

and for a little while I actually entertain the idea.

I think of waking up each morning to the lulling sound of waves crashing on the seashore,

beautiful sunrises, and long walks on the beach...then I remember the sand, and the salt air...

and for heavens sake my HAIR {ha, just kidding, that's what hats are for right.?!}.

I tease, I tease....I really do love the beach.

I love watching my kids frolicking in the waves...

I very much enjoy watching my handsome hubby emerge from the surf.

I love perching under my umbrella with a good book in hand 

soaking up the sun, fun and good times.

So thank you Lord for giving my family such a perfect week at the shore,

and for every glorious piece of sand between my toes & everywhere else.

Until next year....

It's good to be HOME.

* peace, love & hugs *

  7. I'm a fairly new reader of your blog - have enjoyed it since I discovered you a few weeks back. Loved seeing the photos of your time at the beach. We are are the beach in Oregon this weekend - entertaining thoughts of the benefits of living here - but we'll go home today and dream of returning again soon.
