The Man and I took the kids to Ocean Island, North Carolina last month. I loved it SO much and would love to get in the car this morning and not stop until I reached its sandy shore again. We seriously did nothing on this particular vaca. Usually I hunt down every Civil War monument and battlefield and bore them all to tears. I just needed to kick back this time. A huge portion of our days were spent collecting sea glass and shells. I just loved having this be the biggest decision of the day - "what type of shell to look for today". I wasn't sure exactly sure where I would put them all - we took home a ton. The car trunk smelled a tad fishy for awhile:) Anyway - I just love the way they look in my old enamel bowls. I picked up the fabulous 3-tier very crusty stand there as well. How refreshing that it can hang outside and not have to worry about getting rusty:)

  4. WOOT!!! oh what great finds on our NC shores. YES! There is nothing so absolutely freeing and totally making you lose ALL track of time as walking the shore and looking for shells and beautiful sea glass... Love just thinking about it. Oh how my girl and I used to spend hours searching. The sandy beaches are comforting and rejuvenating. Glad you got to come and rest and make moments and memories.
