Birthdays, Beaches and Bacon

Brian's birthday was on Friday. The boys decorated his cake with lego guys and go go crazy bones. We are starting his 36th year off at the beach in Nags Head. I told myself I was detaching from everything technological. I have not checked e-mail or my phone, but I have to post photos. This is photo heaven. It also is a place to sit with your journal, a corona and just write. Write about everything and nothing. Write as I sit and watch the dozen turtles surface from the lake on one side and listen to the crash of the waves of the ocean on the other. Write as I forget what day it is or if the laundry needs to be done or if phone calls need to be made. Life is good this week, very good.

Here are just the beginning of the photos for the week.

Love & Light,


Happy Birthday Bri...

My favorite photo yet. Brian made bacon and eggs this morning. We were up an hour and a half before the boys. I read a book, ate and drank my coffee in the sun. It was so perfect.

The first night.

Hot tubbing.

Our house. 6 bedroom, 5 bath... Just for us! It has an elevator. The boys are in heaven. I can hear myself think. Excessive? Maybe. Worth every penny? YOU BET!

I love this shot. His face says it all.
