{Beaching with the Girls}

Good Sunday afternoon everyone. I hope that you all are having a wonderful Sunday and that tomorrow, July 4th, that you enjoy your red, white and blues. I just returned from from a short getaway to Fernandina Beach with my three daughters and we had such a wonderful time. We had one shower of rain but needless to say, I was a drowned rat! But oh did it ever feel so good and I simply just give praise for the much needed rain and time away with the girls. I for sure got the biggest soaking but then I can't move as fast as my girls!

As always we have such a big gathering with Marty's family at my Fatherinlove's home each year. Lots of food but most importantly, a sweet time of fellowship.  The day after Thanksgiving me and my two youngest daughters with three of the grandgirls hit the Black Friday Shopping. My oldest daughter and her family took a trip to Universal in Orlando, Fl. so she wasn't with us. Honestly, the crowds weren't as bad as I had anticipated. The lines were a little long but hey...what do we expect when we go out Black Friday shopping, right?  Of course, we ended our day with Starbucks and that makes everything okay in my book!
