Feeling Nostalgic


Lately I have been around lots of the most adorable little kids. It has made me feel very nostalgic of my own who are not so little anymore. My little guy will be 19 in a few more months. I long for the days of vacationing on Topsail with my husband’s family. We had some amazing times at the beach, in the boats, catching dinner, and just being with family. Sadly the house has since been sold and the nieces and nephews are all grown up and getting married and having kids of their own. I truly treasure all of my photos from those trips and occasionally come across 1 that I need to share which probably doesn’t make me the favorite aunt for the day. Although I long to have these days back, I’m looking forward to welcoming a new generation and making memories with them too.  – Diane


Exploring the Cape

My photo this week came from our first trip to Cape Cod. The quaint New England architecture and natural beaches was a perfect setting for our anniversary adventure.

We spent time in Provincetown, exploring art galleries and shops. The fresh seafood was amazing… Pretty much “lobstah” for breakfast lunch and dinner!

A beautiful bike ride to the coast proved challenging and rewarding to see the dunes and sea grasses framing the bold blues of the Atlantic. It was eerie that no one was in the water and we soon found out why… The purple shark warning flag was flapping in the breeze.

It was our first time on the cape, but God willing, not the last!

I found this family of seagulls while at the beach with my family. I realized I had never seen a family of seagulls with babies before. What a treat to watch.

Walk About


Photo Friday Theme – On A Walk by Kim

One of our favorite travels and most beautiful walks in Ireland was the Donegal Bay Coast. We visted the Glencolmcille Folk Village where we were immersed into traditional Irish culture. We had the opportunity to learn gaelic football, playing music and of course dance.

My husband and daughter took a great hike to one of the martel towers at a cliff’s edge …on a walk to remember.

In My Dreams…

 In my dreams, I have a large window with this view in my home. It’s peaceful, quiet, has a private path to the beach, and has a great rocking chair to sit and read in. This was taken while on vacation on Topsail, NC. I love how everyone there names their homes. This one was called The Gritty Britches.  – Diane

The End Of Summer?

= Dania Beach 8/5/2011 =



The end of summer. A time when everyone begins to move indoors.  A time when the beaches become deserted and ice cream is eaten less often.

Wait a minute, this is Florida. The summer never really ends. Stay outside, eat ice cream and enjoy those sandy beaches.  – Diane
