4th of July in Duck, OBX

Matt, Riese and I had a really fun 4th of July at the beach in the Outer Banks! (If you missed my first beach recap, check it out: Making Waves.)

Making Waves

Hi from the beach! We are here in Duck in the Outer Banks in North Carolina. We come every summer for a week with Matt's family and some friends, and it's always one of my favorite weeks of the year!

Florida Vacation Recap

Last week, Matt and I took Riese on a family vacation - our first big trip as a family of 3! We hadn't done any air travel with Riese yet and decided it was time to get brave and go for it. :) We spent a couple days researching (aka Googling "best vacation spots with one year old"), and decided we wanted to go somewhere warm and beachy, but stay in Continue Reading …

So nice of them! We decided back in Continue Reading …
