OBX Vaca 2016

Last week we headed South to the Outer Banks of North Carolina for our annual beach vacation. I had every intention of popping in to share a quick couple of blog posts that I had planned in advance, but it was much too beautiful to be on the computer at all, the weather was perfect, and we kept busy. Busy playing in the ocean and in the pool and in the sand. Busy eating lots of yummy food and making drinks all day long. Such fun, I tell you! It was a wonderful break that provided just what I needed -- a gathering of inspiration, some much-needed refueling, and a little bit of letting go.

Now that we're back home Kevin and I have a long list of house/yard things that need done before this Summer season ends, and I certainly have plenty of sewing projects I'd love to tackle, but our Summer fun to-do list is even longer and it's time to get serious! Before school starts, before the leaves fall, there's still plenty of time for more playing in the water and for picnics and for ice cream cones and for enjoying Summer's beauty.

I wish you all the best in the Summer days to come! ♡ Maureen

    1. We were in Duck last year, this year in Kill Devil Hills. We try to switch it up each year, just to experience different beaches and parts of that beautiful area!

  10. You need to stop and smell the roses with your family while they are young enough to enjoy these fun times with you. Work can always wait until these are done. They will always remember these experiences with you and not your work.

  11. We just got back from a week in Corolla, NC with all the family. Great weather all week - only rained at night. It is such a great place to relax and enjoy the family, ocean and sunrise.
