    A Look Back.

A Carolina Farewell.

How is it even possible that today is my last day at the beach?  Time truly flies when you’re with the ones you love.

It has been a wonderful and relaxing week of reading and relaxing.  Just what I needed!

And despite all the 45 spf sunscreen and sitting under a shade umbrella, I’ve still got a pretty solid South Carolina tan.

It’s fun to think ahead to 10 or 20 years, when I can pull out these pictures and tell our little boy – “that was you in my belly!”  Even though I know that life will only get more exciting and joyful once our baby arrives, it has been fun to do a few “lasts” as just the two of us as well.

And speaking of lasts, after two solid months of being literally side by side, today is the last day Sarah and I have together this summer.  I can’t even think about it – too sad.

One more afternoon of sunshine, and I’ll be back in my cozy bed in Seattle tonight.


Happy weekend to you all!

So glad you got to enjoy yourself- I love the Carolinas at summertime! I’m more of an Outer Banks goer myself but I’ve been living vicariously through your photos- I had to work this summer! :)


Natalie @ Will Jog For Food     at 10:19 am

That looks so nice, I want to be there! You are rockin the tan girl :)


Caitlin     at 10:21 am

I think it’s so lovely you and your sister got to spend so much time together this summer!


Leanne (Bride to Mrs.)     at 10:24 am

Soak up today with your sister :) I’m sure she will visit once the baby comes!

Love that last picture, looks so peaceful and relaxing! Have a good trip home.


Amy*     at 10:45 am

Looks like it was a great trip! Safe Travels!*


Alayna @ Thyme Bombe     at 11:34 am

You are so tan! I’m more like Casey, pale as the moon even in the sunshine!


Shannon @ My Place In The Race     at 11:35 am

Enjoy! Safe travels home!!


Ciera @ Rose & Thistle     at 11:57 am

Looks like you had a fabulous time! We spent a couple of weeks in Folly Beach about 3 years ago and it was so relaxing… Bliss.

Vacations ending is always a bit sad, but getting back to real life can be fun too.


Jackie @ That Deep Breath     at 12:19 pm

I hate the end of vacation! Have a safe flight home!


chelsey @ clean eating chelsey     at 12:42 pm

Last days of vacation are so bittersweet – I always love them because that means I get to go home and see my puppy, but they stink because I hate getting back to reality!


SaraRM     at 1:48 pm

I hope this doesnt sound too creepy but HOT MAMMA!! You seriously look gorgeous, especially with the tan belly ha!

Hope you enjoy the rest of your trip!


Alaina     at 2:06 pm

You and your sister tan quite nicely! Jealous. :-)

I hope that you come home nice and relaxed!


Ashley     at 3:48 pm

Safe travels home!!!


Maryea {Happy Healthy Mama}     at 3:52 pm

Glad you had such a great time. I can’t believe how tan you are after wearing 45 spf! I wouldn’t get that tan if I wore baby oil. (not that I would…;-))


Katelyn @ Chef Katelyn     at 4:52 pm

Wahhhh! So sad you have to leave but I’m glad you had a good time — and got some color!! Mwahhh


Shayla @ The Good Life     at 5:28 pm

It’s always sad at the end of a vacation…but at least you have something very big to look forward to in the next couple of months ;)

I have to say again, you look so gorgeous and glowing here…love your confidence in rocking the bikini with the adorable baby bump :)


Lauren     at 8:26 pm

So sweet that you and your sister are so close. :)


Jessi @ Quirky Cookery     at 10:28 pm

Whoa, check out that tan. I have no doubt that you applied and reapplied frequently, so it’s crazy that you have that much color anyway, ha.

And I’m with the others. I love that you and your sister are so close. <3


Julie @ Wearing Mascara     at 10:30 am

Glad you had a great vacation!


Michaela     at 10:54 am

too sad vacations are over!
I loves seeing all the pics and I hope that when I´m pregnant I will look as beautiful as you do!
Have a safe trip home.


allpointswhole     at 5:01 pm

I remember last year when we were going to Hilton Head at the same time! You seriously look amazing. I too have sisters and it IS so difficult to say goodbye. I hate it.


Ally @ A Girl in her Kitchen     at 9:26 pm

So glad you had a relaxing vacation! You look great! :)


sam     at 11:54 am

I have just found your blog and very like it you looks so fresh and relax. How many pounds did you gain? I mean I can see only your belly grow nothing else:-) so you probably gain very little. I like your recipes too


www.theevolvinghomemaker.com     at 3:48 pm

oh my goodness. that is what being so healthy gets you! you barely look like you are expecting! I look like that for an entire week out of every month. you look fantastic and so happy!



Sarah@The Flying ONION     at 8:20 pm

Look at how healthy you look!! Gorgeous, lady! :D

So glad you’ve been having a wonderful vacation. Enjoy it! :D


Dani Delicatessen     at 8:34 pm

You are adorable pregnant! I hope those body issues have left because you look great, hope the pregnancy continues to go well : )
