Well Rested...




Hello Friends,
I'm back from my most wonderful vacation. We were really only about an hour and ten minutes from home but it felt like another world. We had a house right on the beach so there was no packing of the cooler, running to public restrooms, lugging chairs and beach gear for blocks and blocks... it was truly a relaxing week. I read two and a half books and spent about six hours a day soaking up the sun. (I know that's bad) The photo above is the view from our master bedroom!


This was the view from the beach in front of our house. We were close enough to the amusement pier for the kids to walk to but far enough away that we didn't hear all of the noise. To the left of our house was a little beach restaurant that made these awesome cider donuts. Needless to say, if I don't see another donut for a few months my heart will be happy.




The boys loved to go to the beach in the evening and explore all of the abandoned sand castles and holes that were built that day. Can you tell that Alex wasn't in the mood for a picture?

So now I need to get back to business. I have two new items that will be up for sale at Glitter and Grunge September 1st and I am breaking out the sewing machine tonight to get started on some more puffy house ornaments.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
