Bits and Pieces of the Weekend...

Hi Friends! I hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend. The Husband and I headed south on Friday to spend the weekend back home in the low country. We knew the weather was going to be spotty but decided to get out of dodge anyway. We barely had time to empty out our suitcases from last week's travels before hitting the road again but hey...you only live once, right?!?

Saturday we headed to the beach. Saint Simons was packed beyond belief so we opted for Jekyll Island instead. Jekyll Island holds a special place in our hearts anyway (I celebrated childhood birthdays there every year and The Husband and I wed there) so it was extra special to go there instead of Saint Simons. My sweet Mama went with us so I was in hog heaven with two of my favorite people on earth accompanying me to one of my favorite places on earth. It was glorious and I didn't want the day to end!

Sadly, it ended and Tropical Storm Beryl showed up. We endured tropical like conditions for the rest of the weekend but honestly, it wasn't that bad. I didn't put a curling iron in my hair all weekend and minimal make up was applied! Days of pure relaxation were enjoyed by all. Sure, we lost power but we laughed, ate, drank and carried on as if it was all part of the plan.

Here's our weekend in pictures...

Can you see the tanker ship in the distance?

Squash and pork chops on the grill. We grilled Saturday AND Sunday! 

Wicked high tides just prior to Beryl rolling into town. Not sure if you can see the white caps or not.
The wind was fierce and blew the tide so high, it covered the marsh line.


All in all, it was a windy yet relaxing weekend with my beloved family. I can't believe it went by so fast. At least it's a short week! Happy Wednesday! :)
