Home Sweet Home

I do love traveling... and even more so to the beach.... but I also love coming home. I do hate to leave the beach, though. We had gorgeous weather (though it was fairly windy most days), and the family time is fun too!

Campbell liked the beach way more this year than last. Last year, I could hardly walk her down to the water without her screaming (she was 9 weeks old). This year, she would just plop down in the wet sand by the water and play for a good amount of time. And we made it away without her eating too much sand! Thumbs up!

Finding shells

Eating goldfish crackers on the beach.... is there any better time to eat them?

Don't even try taking my tootsie pop....

Every year, I take some black and white pictures on the beach. Campbell acted like she was on "America's Next Top Model", picking up sand and letting it blow in the wind, rolling around in the sand, and running out to the water. We got some amazing shots, and I can't wait to get them framed and hung around the house!

*Sigh*.... I can't wait till next year.... only 51 more weeks! :)


  1. I LOVE those black and white photos! Campbell is a doll. I actually thought of you guys while you were away. One of my customers had mentioned that he was heading to the exact location your family was at. He was even telling my about the wild horse's. Soon as he said he was staying 7 miles down, I was like, hey, my blogging mom friend is there too! Glad you had a wonderful vaca. and happy you made it home safe!

  2. Oh thank you!!!! And that's crazy that one of your customers was practically where we were staying! It's such a great vacation spot, but I don't meet too many people who actually go there. I guess because it IS a bit more isolated than going anywhere else down in the outer banks.... such a small world!

  3. That picture of the 3 of you--in the words of Rachel Zoe, "I DIE"!
    TOO cute!
    Enjoyed your blog:)
