We spent this week in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. While it wasn’t exactly a perfect vacation – poor Sean got hit again with the stomach bug that just won’t quit and the baby ended up with croup – I loved being here at this time of year. It was just really peaceful, with gorgeous pastel sunrises and sunsets and uncrowded streets and shops.

The kids seemed oblivious to the cold temperatures, happily digging in the sand and splashing in the surf, and we finished two big puzzles during our inside time (okay, my sister- and brother-in-law finished one and I jumped in at the very end to help our 10-year-old finish the second…turns out I don’t like puzzles until the skeleton is in place!).

This morning we hit the road for the next stop on our road trip: southern Florida. We’re looking forward to seeing my grandma before she heads back to her house and celebrating Thanksgiving with friends and family!
