Another Day at the Beach

We went back to Topsail Island for one last day at the beach. It was a perfectly beautiful day. We swam, soaked up some sun, and enjoyed visiting with my grandmother and aunt. We sure are going to miss this place!

I <3 Wilmington

20130905_150908We have been having such a wonderful time in Wilmington, NC! We called this place home for four years and it has been so fun to spend time here with family and old friends. We have spent the past two weeks visiting, swimming in the ocean and my Gram’s pool, and shopping and dining at old favorite spots. It has just been lovely! It is fun and exciting to visit new destinations, but there is something so wonderful about the familiar. I am so thankful for the time we have had with family and the chance to catch up with old friends. And, well, it’s just nice to have been missed.





Today Betsy and George went back to their old schools to eat lunch with friends. What a blessing it was to be back in those well-walked halls among familiar faces. So many dear friends! I was reminded of the blessed life we had had here in Wilmington. Oh, how thankful I am for those days and relationships and memories. 

After lunch, the kids, Gram, and I stopped at Carolina Beach. It was a wonderful day!

Keeping Busy in N.C.

Sunday we headed off to Asheboro to visit NC Zoo. It was a beautiful day, but it was North Carolina in all its sweltering summer glory!  I had almost forgotten what a N.C. summer felt like. After complaining about having endured the coolest, rainiest summer of my life, the heat and humidity had finally found us! And, of course, so had the rain… again. The day had been dry, with the exception of a few refreshing sprinkles toward the end of the day. But, as soon as we started the drive home it began to pour. And, wow, North Carolina knows how to rain!


























Monday we set off for the coast. It is so great to be back in the Wilmington area. We loved living here! We had a great dinner with my Gram, Aunt, and Uncle on Monday night. Tuesday I was stuck in bed with yet another pinched nerve – ugh! Yesterday we swam the day away with my Gram and Uncle and then Betsy and I met dear friends for dinner. It’s been busy, but we are having such a wonderful time!
