a change of plans

We’ve had these plans for months – the Florida Panhandle, Santa Rosa Beach, a summer rental, Labor Day.  My oldest looking forward to the beach, my baby’s first time at the beach.

Tropical Storm Lee had other plans.  It rained all weekend.  But there were a few pockets of beauty.  A few quiet moments that we had on the beach.  This is the first time these little feet have touched sand, my friends.  Too bad we didn’t make it to the water!

But our timing could not have better, actually.  We stayed indoors most of the weekend – Listening to the rain beating on the tin roof of our rental, the pitter and patter of little feet running through the house, talking and laughing and eating.  Enjoying one another’s presence.  Exactly what we needed.  It’s felt good to go with the flow for a change.

    that first picture blows me away! from the sand to the sea to the clouds w/such subtle color. And those little feet are so precious. What a cozy time spent w/your lovies :-)ReplyCancel

    I adore the perspective of looking down on your little one with your hand holding hers. Precious photo.ReplyCancel

    we have vacationed in the panhandle every year, sometimes twice a year, for the past 13 years.
    we always stay in seaside or watercolor and after all these years, the panhandle owns a little piece of our hearts.
    i SO SO SO hope you can go back when the weather allows for days at the beach….and nights, too.
    october in the panhandle is spectacular….our favorite month actually.
    thanks for bringing a little bit of what i love to the screen for me to see :)ReplyCancel

      Thanks so much for your kind words, beth. We will definitely make a trip back to the panhandle. We actually rode our bikes through Seaside and Watercolor – they are beautiful.ReplyCancel
