Last week was my Outer Banks vacation. We got back Sunday and by Monday I was ready to go back. Well actually, I didn’t want it to end to begin with, so I guess it was more like my desire to stay had increased by Monday. I have never needed a vacation as much as I did last week. It was so good to relax and enjoy the salt air, read as I was watching the tides, and spend time with my aunt. Since my grandma passed away a few years ago, she moved about 45 minutes to an hour away, and all the hustle and bustle of everyday means I don’t see her as much as I used to. So it was good to have a week to “catch up”. We took a sunset dolphin cruise and a wild horse tour. Plus we ate dinner together every night and breakfast together almost every morning. The house we rented was amazing. What more could we have asked for? It was just what this Southern Belle needed.
