It's Been a Long Time!

Wow!! I have been away for a while! and I am not sure if there will be anyone out there to read. I have really needed some time away to refresh and think about exactly what it is that I want to do with this blog. I want the things that I share here to be helpful and encouraging and sometimes just fun, to those who are reading. We will start back with a little fun. I will give you a little hint about what I was up to last week.

We saw this.


Did a little bit of this.

This was the preferred mode of transportation.

Ate here.
And saw this cutie every day!

If you guessed we were vacationing at the beach you are right! I am missing those ocean breezes already, as we endure 100 degree temps here in south GA! We had a great time, and eventually Judah decided that he likes the beach too. He wasn't too sure at first, but my husband and I love spending time at the beach, so we figure we had  to get him started early. Next year it should be a little easier, when he has figured out that the sand is not there to eat.

I have some new posts planned that I hope will be helpful, practical, and sometimes like I said, just plain fun! I will be also trying to get together a little summer giveaway, so I hope you will hang in there with me. What about you? What has everyone been up to lately?
Have a blessed week!

So glad you're back..I was beginning to be concerned! That trip looks wonderful and a great way to get the summer started, especially the baby part! Thanks for sharing the sweet pictures!

It's great to see you.
Sounds like you had a productive break. Looks like fun too and seeing the baby everyday I am sure
was sooooo tough for you.:)

Welcome back! Sitting in ocean breezes is a great refresher! Enjoy the new perspective even if it is hot outside!

I have missed you!!! Love these pictures!!! That baby doll is just precious! Austin will be going to USC and majoring in Biology--thinking about pre-med in there sometime! Just praying that he will discern God's will and not his! Letting go is hard! So proud of your son! He will be just up the road from me! Sounds like a road trip for you! I'll meet you along the interstate and we can do lunch and shop!
Hugs!!

Welcome Back! I have missed you! Being a fellow Georgian, I was wondering...is that a Georgia beach? So glad you had a good time! We will be going for our annual family trip to the beach in a few weeks. I can already hear the ocean calling my name! :-)

Oh, the beach looks delightful. I'll bet you were in Grandma heaven seeing the little guy so much. I would like some beach breezes. It is sweltering here too.

Hey again, We go to Jekyll. My hubby grew up there so we always went there when visiting his family. It isn't the prettiest beach, but we love that they have maintained the naturalness of the island. And we have a lot of memories there. Hilton Head is beautiful, too. I appreciate the way they have kept the integrity of their island, as well. We must live pretty close to each other. Maybe one day we can have lunch! :-)

I have been away a lot too Jackie. I love blogging, but seems like life just keeps getting in the way. Glad you are back. Looks like the beach was great fun. I am hoping to go there myself next summer. Too many home projects to go this summer.
Hugs,
