When in doubt, be awesome.

I'm sure I've seen the advice on Pinterest somewhere. We were all restless, and they cried for the beach, and I didn't really care either way, and so I just went with awesome and we landed there.

The water was still and billowing slowly like the sheet I shook out on the sand to sit. And we played until sunset.

  1. We don't live near the beach, but we have a friend who has a villa at the beach and earlier this summer we were the same way and so I packed them up all by myself and we went to the beach. For a week. A whole week with just me and the four of them. Everyone thought I was nuts (including myself at times), but we ended up having the absolute best time and I would do it again in a heartbeat.

    Also? All of your kids are fabulous, but Ivy just steals my heart.

  15. I love your beach pictures. Why does it always appear that you are the only people there? :)I never see anyone else in the background. Feels like you guys are on your own private little beach. :)
