My exact feeling going on right now while burning several days of paid vacation:
With another summer break coming to a close, I'm flashing back to sweet memories of a family beach vacation to Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina where we camped out in a beach house rental and partied it up like nobody's business. Family vacations like these are rare - but seriously treasured. I mean who knows if/when we will get together again sharing sand, surf, and story time on a big leather sofa with Uncle Paco, right? But at least we can enjoy these digital memories of the magical time we shared thanks to my archival of Shutterfly photos just sitting there waiting to land in a blog post.
Sometimes pictures are just better than words, and this slideshow says almost everything about the latest major milestones experienced in my world over the past couple of months. From the youngest's high school graduation to a family vacation in Oahu, Hawaii, we have had enough excitement to last us all a lifetime... or at least a few months until the next set of milestones jump out and smack us in the face.
Helping me with this brendaswenson dot com blog debut is this photo I captured of a lizard during a family vacation to Atlantis in Paradise Island, Bahamas. Coming from Omaha, Nebraska where squirrels and stray cat sitings are the norm, this little guy surely caught my eye as the family and I made our way to the water park.
I am Brenda Swenson and sometimes I blog.
