This month's Instagram started with hikes with the kids, long walks with the dog and lots of smoothies.
Then my kids packed up and all went back to college so I went to the beach for a week. A wonderful house sitter stayed home with the dogs and spoiled them sufficiently while I was gone.
I loved every minute of the beach, sewing in my little loft at the top of the beach house, and long walks on the beach. I did a little reading under an umbrella and lots of visiting with friends over big seafood feasts and lots of glasses of wine. We caught fresh crabs from the dock and enjoyed sunsets over the Intercoastal Canal. Our house was perfectly placed on an island off the coast of NC. It was nestled between the beach and the canal so we could enjoy both!
I brought home some sea glass and seashells, a little bit of sunshine, and a lot of good memories with wonderful friends. Now I'm ready to start a new chapter of online teaching, ZOOM presentations and turning in the final artwork for my very first fabric collection. The beach was a sweet goodbye to summer and I'm so ready and excited for all the new beginnings in front of me!
I hope you are embracing something new and exciting too!
