Travels

Let’s Go to the Beach, Beach

I recently got back from a family vacation at Ocean Isle Beach in North Carolina.  When I say “family vacation” I mean there were about 20+ folks coming and going from the beach house.  This has been an ongoing tradition well before I was born. It’s an opportunity for cousins, aunts, uncles, brothers, sisters, sons, daughters and so on to spend a week together under the same roof to really bond + catch up.  When you think about it, It’s priceless.  Here’s a recap of my vacation at Ocean Isle!

This is what happens when a pack of cute kids asks you to buy one of their bracelets they made.  I couldn't say no!

These 2 goobers kept me laughing all week long and I got to feel young again hanging out with them

That pretty much sums up the week I spent at Ocean Isle… drinking wine/ Diet Coke, hanging out with my cousins, being goofy and LOVING the beach.
