Play in the Sand

Mathias is 9 month old, and it's absolutely astonishing how quickly time flies! Ever since he was born, people kept telling me how quickly babies grow and to relish ever moment. I can't relish enough! Just this last weekend he learned to how clap his hands, at a Super Bowl party of all things.

Wild Horses and New Year's Kisses

The Outer Banks, NC was a romantic fantasy in my mind, a place where I had imagined myself the main character in a Nicholas Sparks novel, relaxing on tranquil beaches, entertained by the hoof beats of wild mustangs galloping gracefully through the surf. Reality, however, painted a picture far more profoundly beautiful than my mind had previously guessed!

A Quick Trip to Charleston

Charleston, S.C. was the welcoming familiarity of home in a city yet to be discovered. I could have spent weeks strolling every cobblestone street perfumed with jasmine blossoms and every inch of white, sandy beach, but with only two days to explore, I found ways to experience both the rich, colonial history and natural charm of this low country beaut.
