Blogging, Family

OBX 2015

Things you may not know about me:

  1. I love the beach. Although I typically don’t go in the ocean deeper than my knees, I absolutely love the feeling of sand between my toes, sun on my skin & the sound of waves crashing on the beach. Few places on Earth top that on my personal list of faves. πŸ˜‰
  2. I love my family. I’ve posted before about losing my mom over 11 years ago, and my brother over 3 years ago… So I absolutely cherish every moment with my dad & sister.
  3. My dad remarried in 2010, and my stepmom & her family are awesome. I know not everyone can utter those words, so I wanted to make sure I made note of how grateful I am for that. “Blended” families can be challenging, as we sometimes have YEARS as one family unit, only to have things change (sometimes suddenly, sometimes it’s a gradual change over many years). And change is hard. But sometimes change can lead to really positive things, so it’s important not to fear it.
  4. I haven’t been on a vacation with my family since I was a child (MAYBE when I was about 12). Until a few weeks ago.

I originally wanted this blog post to be a bit of a “vacation diary” (I even started it two days before I left!) But I decided to try to step away from technology for the majority of vacation (aside from my camera, of course πŸ˜‰) So I’ll just let the pictures be the “visual diary” for my vacation… Enjoy!

  1. You definitely just brought tears to my eyes, Miss Katy Rose. Your words are true. Your Dad and I could never have imagined our blended family could possibly be as wonderful as it is. You all are my heart and we are all so lucky!
