Belated Beach Trip: Part 1
So I lied. Here we are a month later, and I'm finally posting pics from the beach. We are so fortunate to have gotten the chance to go down to Seagrove this summer. We weren't expecting to be able to, but we made it happen, although, Fico wasn't able to join. My grandparents live down on the panhandle of Florida, and we have had the privilege of calling their home our home away from home for the majority of my life. It is something I look forward to year round, being able to go and stay in that house. There is something about returning to a specific place time and time again that makes the experience that much more special each time you go. Something about using the same shower and the same beach access and the same golf cart and the same toys in the attic. Eating on the same dishes and sitting in the same chairs. It all just feels so comforting. There aren't many places I feel that way. Not even my own home. I guess what I'm trying to say is I am so grateful to be able to visit the beach at least a couple times a year and that I have been able to have that constant in my life. That forever safe-place. We have had so many memories down there and it is something that I hope we are able to continue for years to come as we and our children grow older.
