Beachin' It

We're back from an amazing week vacation on Holden Beach, NC. If you've never been to Holden you should definitely add it to your list! It's 95% residential and rental homes with a very small commercial area which I love the most. Having grown up in a beach community that thrives on commercial establishments, it was nice to spend the week really removed and leaving behind the feeling of "having" to go somewhere. There really is nothing like taking time for yourself to relax, rejuvenate and renew, and what better way than to do it at the beach! 

This year was special as it was the first year our family [of 2!] and my sister's family went in together for a beautiful house right on the water. There is no other way to do a beach vacation than staying where you have your own walkway to the water. The weather was hit or miss, but we managed to spend almost every day either at the beach or pool. And as I like to say if you can't enjoy the beach while it's cloudy or rainy than you really aren't a beach person! Rain or shine for me and I'm still happy to be a) away on vacation and b) away on vacation!

I went into the week with only one goal, and that was to read, read, read! I managed to get through two books during the first half of the week. I would definitely recommend both books! The first was  The Summer of Good Intentions by Wendy Francis. For whatever reason this book made me boohoo cry! It was based around a family vacation house, love, life and relationships. It was such a great, quick summer read!! The second book I read was  The Glass Kitchen by Linda Frances Lee. This book was based around 3 sisters with a love for food and of course a little love story. Another great read!

If you've stuck with me until now you'll notice I literally took zero pictures the entire week or otherwise I'd be sharing! Next time I'll make sure to document better!

Until next time... Happy Tuesday!
