Vacation Recap in 7 Quick Takes

Hey y'all!  If you can't tell, I'm back from a 10-day trip to Georgia. I take zero responsibility for any detectable southern accent from here on out.

I'm linking up with Jen over at Conversion Diary for the vacation recap.  I know how much the internet loves those.  Here are some of my favorite parts of the trip:


Cousin Time!!

Sorry about the sun girls


Reading! I read 2 books on vacation (a hUUGE accomplishment for me) -


I loved Unplanned - Abby is so courageous and inspiring and I am so glad I finally read this!  I also liked The Lovely Bones, though I was expecting something a little was much more family drama than thriller, which for some reason I expected.  But good nonetheless.


Beach time on Tybee Island.  Mia loved the water and waves, and would have crawled out to sea if we didn't constantly stop her.  She didn't do too bad in the sand either and loved to dig.


Mia learning to walk!  On July 4th she decided to take more than her usual 1 and a half steps.  Now she won't stop!


An afternoon trip to Savannah with my guy.


Swinging on the porch swing watching everyone on the island (it seemed) walk to and from the beach is one of my absolute favorite things to do.  Here's the decidedly annual porch swing selfie:

And last year's - just for fun!

What a difference a year makes!


And finally, family pics taken by Joel's sister Shelby!!  They are still being edited but here's a sneak peak:

We loved spending some awesome quality time with family and miss them already!


  1. You have a beautiful family! I am desperately overdue for some family pictures. I should probably jump on that while we have a little color in our cheeks from the summer! We leave for the beach soon, and seeing your pictures makes me even more excited! God bless.

    1. Thank you Jaime! A little color from our beach time (we live in AZ and usually avoid the sun in the summer!) was definitely one of the reasons I timed the photos with this trip. Hope you have a great trip too!!
