Hello, guys! I’m coming to you from the beautiful state of Florida today!

Hubby and I are enjoying our time in the warmth and sunshine. I knew I missed the ocean but I didn’t know I missed it this much.

We went to the beach and, with tears of joy in my eyes, just stood on the stand and took it all in. I’m so thankful to be back!

Life Lately

Since we’re away, I don’t have much to share from the home front.

Tilly is enjoying her stay at the sitter’s while her mama and dad are on vacation but I miss her TERRIBLY!

We’ve been doing a lot of antique shopping and thrifting here and I can’t wait to show you what I’ve found!

Other than that, here are a few more scenic photos from the ocean!

Enjoy your week, guys!

I’ll be back home and on the blog later this week. Cheers!

      We did…the weather was just STUNNING!! We had so much fun fishing the flats and enjoying the warm sun. It’s so good to be home but the ocean was just life-giving. Hope you are well, friend!

  • Sounds like you had a wonderful vacation! Your pictures are beautiful! I’m so excited the weather warmed up here while you were visiting! I can’t wait to see what treasures you discovered while thrifting. Let me know if there’s a store you like in that area!
