We were at the beach last week with my entire family, 22 of us to be exact. It was lovely and loud and I feasted on hush puppies, fish tacos, and my baby nieces' chubby deliciousness. 

I had lots of time in the car to think and no great opportunities to write. {My thinking time was also my driving time and that makes holding pens and balancing keyboards a bit tricky. Not to mention illegal.}

This morning I sat down to write and I did indeed write a whole post. Sometimes the words flow like a mighty rushing river and at other times, they drip. drip. drip. like a rusty faucet.  This morning it was the latter. And when I finished? I didn't even like it. 

So here I sit, 8 days without a post and nostalgic for the ocean air I breathed in and out for 7 days.

But in the spirit of sharing something, anything, I submit a few favorite photos from the week. 

Oh I have plenty to write about life and school, God and grace. I even have a story or two to share but I'll save all of that for the days that are less, um, drippy.

In the meantime, I give you snapshots of our lovely time on the Carolina coast.

{sister-in-law Michelle, sister Emily, sister-in-law Liz, my mom, me...all out for my birthday lunch. And why does my hair look like a mullet with a bun? Weird.}

{the 5 boy cousins}

{the 7 girl cousins}

{Poppy, Nana and the 12 grands}

{I just love this kite photo of Poppy and sweet Marlowe.}

And these 3 belong to me. Oh what a blessed mama I am. Photos like these remind me that the years are going by way too quickly...

So raise your glass to summer! May you find sun, sand, and water aplenty.
