Life is Beautiful


The boys and I went to the beach with my family this past weekend. (Noel was at the Kentucky Derby.)  It's amazing what the beach and being with family can do for your soul.   I didn't worry about anything, I finished my book, and I got to relax with my little babies on the beach every day....(which was great, even if it was a little chilly.)

I also put together a little video of our weekend.  It's my first one...and not stellar...but hopefully I'll get better at them with more practice.



I hope you had a great weekend!

Awww your kids are adorable! Glad you were able to find some down time to relax. And isn't the beach just perfect? Whether it's hot or cold, something about the sound of the waves crashing on the shore is always so calming :)

That looks like so much fun! The pictures tell such a story and I LOVE Emily Giffin books! Heart of Matter I ended up reading when Carter was in the hospital and it was such a good distraction. So glad you had fun even if it was cold!

The beach is so fun! I'm going this summer (in Alabama, though). I don't think I've read that Emily Giffin book. I'll have to look into that.
