family vacation

This is the third year I've been on family vacation with my Love's family. Being raised by a beach bum, myself, I love vacation because when I do think of vacation I think purely beach. For the last two years we've stayed in Garden City, SC at a beach house called "View From the Top". And it is perfect for a large group (I think we have 28 here!). Having 8 bedrooms, 81/2 baths, a huge kitchen, living room... even an elevator, this large family has found a home away from home.

One tradition in particular I love. My sister- in- law and her 2 girls give out posters at the beginning of the week to hang on each bedroom door that have a specific theme that then correlates to the person. Last year it was devoted to the men and the theme was titles of popular songs. My Love's poster was Zac Brown Band's "Chicken Fried" which suited him perfectly! The year before was dedicated to the children in the families, and this year the women received the posters! The theme: Pioneering women of the USA. My poster: Clara Barton, founder of the American Red Cross. I love it! My very first poster!

Don't you just love the little things in life*


thank you for your lovely thought sent my way!
