Past/Present

Keith and I are currently counting down the SECONDS until we leave for vacation this week. We are so ready to get out of town and our trip to the beach in North Carolina is the perfect solution. I think I mentioned this before, but we are joining my parents and some family friends in Bald Head Island which is a small marshy, beachy island where there are no cars allowed and we'll have 5 days of absolute relaxation. My family and I have vacationed here twice before and they were some of my most memorable summer trips so naturally I cannot wait to share that experience with Keith. We have a house for the week right on the river, with golf carts and bikes to get us around the island and to the beach every day. I am really looking forward to watching the sunset each night with a glass of wine in my hand and late night chats and games out on the porch. Can you tell I'm already in vacation mode? Just two days of work and 12 hour drive through the night stand between us and bliss. I hope that we're making you jealous because we've been pretty darn jealous of everyone else's summer trips haha

In an effort to prepare myself for our island trip, here are some photos from the last time I was at Bald Head... it was the summer of 2005 just after my junior year of high school:

Dad. Lighthouse.

Probably my favorite photo of my parents. Always makes me laugh haha

  1. Photobucket? for real? I wish I could remember my password. I can only imagine the gems I would find.
