for the past week and half this little family of mine has been on the move. we spent some time in Hilton Head, SC with matt's family for our yearly beach vacation and then headed to Myrtle Beach, SC to celebrate my dad's 60th birthday with my side of the family (happy birthday diddy we love you!). we've been looking forward to both of these vacations all summer and i can say they did not disappoint. there was wine, cards, laughter and lots of sun - and cousins! oh the cousins! between my sister and matt's brother we have 4 nephews and i just LOVE seeing them with G. it makes my heart smile. although i think all of this travel did my little lady in because we have been home all week sick :( but she's feeling better slowly but surely and i think we have decided to bid summer farewell for now. the temperatures are dropping a bit here in NC and it makes being outside so much more enjoyable. so. great vacays make my heart happy, but it's also good to be home. because i'm a creature of habit for sure (i get it honestly - dad i'm looking at you) and i kinda like our little routine over here - dinners, errands, move nights in. and sevilla! i missed that mangy pup while we were gone. so we're back. our little family in our cozy home. and i like it that way. that's enough ramblings for today! happpppy thursday!
