My Favorite Place

My husband and I spent the last week back east visiting family, celebrating at a wedding and spending time at the shore. Both of our families have spent their summers in Sea Isle City in southern New Jersey for years. This summer marked my 28th year at the shore -- my first trip there was when I was just a month or two old. During college, I even lived with my grandparents in their tiny beach house for two summers. During that first summer that I lived at the shore I rekindled a friendship from kindergarten and fell in love. A few years later, the boy I  had known since kindergarten proposed to me on the beach in that small beach town. My (now) husband and I were even married at the shore - though not on the beach. So, as you can imagine, the shore has a special place in my heart. On our last day at the shore, I took a walk by myself along the beach in the morning. The beach is so peaceful when it's not filled with sunbathers and ice cream carts. Here are a few photos I snapped to share my favorite place with all of you:


I can't wait to be back on the beach in late July with my parents and grandparents.
Counting down the days!

Such a special memory! My favorite place happens to be a beach town as well, in Maine. Brian has never been, unless you count a short drive through during October & a rain storm. Hope you're doing well!
