it's been a little bit since i've had a few moments alone to gather my thoughts and process the month of may. there were good times and hard times and frankly, i'm happy it is ending. i spent a weekend with some wonderful friends, celebrated five years of togetherness, my baby brother graduated college and then was in a car accident... that was a long weekend. and we made a lot of progress with the wedding planning. we are a little less than one hundred days away and there are still so many things to get done. so after a crazy month, i'm taking a few personal weeks to travel and just breathe.
we spent last week on the east coast. after a trip to the airport that rivals the mccallister's, i made it to charleston where a handsome man was there waiting to pick me up. we spent the first half of the week on folly beach with carter's family. the house was beautiful. with porches that overlooked the atlantic ocean and the most breathtaking morning light. i spent mornings in a rocking chair, sipping on my first cup of coffee and sharing conversations with a four year old. we spent our days on the beach and making trips to the market. and the evenings were spent around the table enjoying meals and laughing together as a family.
here are a few moments from the beginning of our trip. all taken with an iphone.
