If you follow me on Instagram, you already saw this pic of my toes in the sand from this past weekend. I look forward to this trip every year that we’ve been on for the past 5 years with a group of our closest couple friends. Actually we missed last year (due to work conflicts) and it was devastating so I’m thankful we were back this year! I guess since I don’t live on or anywhere near a beach, I really appreciate its healing properties for the soul (and the sands great natural exfoliating properties! ha!). There is nothing that compares to how relaxing and tranquil a beach can be and how it can take your worries away. Especially when it’s accompanied with good friends who you adore and perfect weather.
^^ These girls (and mamas!) are just the most fun to be around.
We have 12 kiddos between us with 1 more on the way! Not me, the pretty lady in green;) ^^
^^ I don’t drink bloody marys, but I do love how fancy they are with all of their veggies included!
These were definitely a popular adult drink of choice while lounging on the beach!
I was a mimosa girl. ^^
^^ Seriously this was our view every morning from one of our balconies.
Not a bad way to wake up!^^
^^ Me and the hubs after his late arrival from work. Was glad to have a little time
with him rather than none!^^
^^ The only group pic we got of the weekend that is sadly a little blurry! But it was on my
favorite night of the weekend where we did a shrimp boil on the beach that
carried over late into the night! ^^
^^ There is something so magical about a sunset on the beach. ^^
Who knew that a beach weekend in October could have been so gorgeous?? We got seriously lucky with the weather. This weekend always goes by so quickly that I’m always wishing we had just ONE more day. But I’ll take the time we get because it’s a much needed break away from real life. Just enough time away from our children to recharge our parent batteries and none of us feel bad about admitting that. Absence makes the heart grow fonder right? Luckily all of our kids enjoy the time with their grandparents as well (they always go above and beyond entertaining our children!), so it’s a win win for everyone.
Grayton Beach, I can’t wait until next year…
Do you take any yearly vacations you always look forward to?
