I love the beach. My pale, Irish skin doesn't always like it, but this year I used SPF 50 the entire trip and it worked out quite nicely. :)

There is something about spending time near the ocean that just makes me calm. 
I love the sound of the water,
the feel of the wind in my hair,
the sand on my feet,
and the idea that you come just as you are to the beach. 

This four-day trip with my family was just lovely.
No make-up but lots of food, sun, fun, and games. 
And we managed to get through the trip without any serious fighting over the games which I take as a MAJOR win considering how competitive we are. 

When Josh and I left on Tuesday night after dinner to drive home for work, it was really hard to say goodbye. I actually cried. Whoops. 

I think it's more important than I realize to just be. Be with my family. Be in nature. Be with myself.

I am extremely grateful for our wonderful trip.

Ocean City, MD is a great place to visit!
