Life had become so overwhelming for me when Donnie was away with the older two
It seemed we hardly ever had time to really talk about life anymore
I started to feel disconnected with him
I really don't like this feeling
I am not a surface type of person and when "problems" in life begin to brew.....
I will do what it takes to make things better....
Even if we have to make an emergency get-a-way...
I wanted just one day...
one whole day
Donnie asked his sweet mom to watch the children for us
while we took a little drive on over to the beach...
I think the beach has become one of my favorite places to be....
There is something that takes place deep in my heart when I come face to face
with the massive ocean and the waves....
The breeze blows and there I find some comfort and peace...
We had such a great time reflecting and revamping some of our vision, plans, and goals for
We are so uncertain what God will do during this time of our lives
Money is tight
job is uncertain
not sure about the business
but resting in the Lord.
This is all I can do....
Here are some pictures we took on our day trip to St. Augustine Beach...
It felt strange not having the kids to photograph
So Donnie and I are the models this time around....
Entering our destination
Had a cheap junk food lunch
Made our first stop..... the Birkenstock store
Just for a try on....not a buy
I thought these were cute
Thought this was a pretty little spot filled with grapes
Yep...they were real....and tasted bitter/sweet
Did a tiny bit of window shopping
Since all I wanted to do was to relax and talk
We hung our feet off the side of the walk
Wondered what it might be like to own a boat
or to even live on one...
Donnie took a potty break...
ahem...I held mine... ha ha
Came up the old fort but didn't take the tour
Only walked near the old fort
Saw a bride being photographed
Walked down this beautifully built boardwalk
Saw some amazing homes on our walk down to the beach
This was massive and vacant
Homes facing the beach.....
We stopped and wondered what it would be like to live in one
Hey....I would do it...it would be amazing!!
I love the feel of the ocean water on my feet...
Let my hair down and soaked it all in....
And of course reconnected with my babe....
