A Little Piece of Heaven

Here's a sneak peek at some of my pictures from my vacation to the wonderful Outer Banks of North Carolina. This was my 19th summer vacation here and I'll tell you gets better every single year. This year was particularly special, as it was my grandparents 60th wedding anniversary. They were completely surprised when we had a priest show up at the house so they could renew their wedding vows. It was such a touching moment to see them holding hands and repeating their original vows. There were very few dry eyes in the room. Then we celebrated with a huge cake and party at a delicious local restaurant.

Spending time with three of my closest cousins was another part of vacation that I always treasure. My cousin Emma who is from LA/Colorado is adorable. I can't believe she is 17 now. Unfortunately I don't get to see her as much as I would like but she is such a gorgeous, sweet girl. I can't wait to do a posting on her great LA fashion sense. My two younger cousins are also so fun! They love trying on all of my make-up, shoes, and clothes. They are as adorable as can be and I love them to pieces.

I totally enjoyed all the fun I had with the BF at the beach as well. Since we live so far apart for half of the year when I am away at school, I really treasure every little bit of time we get to spend together. The BF and I had fun successfully learning how to ride waves, going for bike rides, and just being together. He's so great.

The beach was a blast! After all, isn't this the main reason we go to the Outer Banks!? We couldn't have been luckier with the rained once and it was in the middle of the night. Everyday was sunny and warm, perfect waves, the ideal beach weather. The last picture I posted is such a funny picture of my three brothers enjoying the waves.

I miss the beach already. It's hard coming back to reality, especially when you've just spent 12 days in your favorite place in the entire world. I'm missing my camera cord to upload the rest of the vacation pics, but I'll try and get them up tomorrow!
