Life Lately: At the Beach

Listening to this while I write and I thought it made a good soundtrack for this post.

It’s been a few weeks since I’ve updated the bloggy. Probably not the best time for radio silence considering my book comes out in about 2.5 weeks but I’ve been so crazy busy.  I moved into a new position at work and I really had to keep my focus there. But …

We did take a few days off for 4th of July in the Outer Banks and I wanted to tell you about it.

Most of you know we go to OBX every year. (Last year)

This is the exact spot where we got married. Look at how aqua blue the water is. I grew up on Long Island Sound which is pretty much navy blue-greenish.

It’s so special to bring Austin there now. I can’t believe it was three years ago already.

We had our annual crab feast with shrimp and hush puppies and corn and big bowls of mac and cheese for the little ones.

We played in the sand a lot. Austin was finally into it this year.

I got in some of my beloved beach runs and got to break in my new Reebok Pumps!

Tested out my new polar watch too.

We got stuck in traffic. Check in day for the beach houses can get crazy. Luckily we had three dozen Duck Donuts in the car with us.

Austin had his first sparkler and saw some fireworks. He was more interested in his trucks though. Maybe next year.

This is the beach house at night. Magical.
