beach snapshots

 today i am sharing a few iphone snapshots from our beach trip in south carolina last week 
...i will let the photos do the talking...
our nephew, cameron james, sleeping  so peacefully on me under a tent on the beach
i fell so much more in love with this little man last week
he is precious and so good
 i went to a boutique and consignment shop with my sister-in-law {love spending time with her!}
these little bow ties were to die for!
 we spent some time on thursday night at a hidden gem 
it was tucked away underneath lots of big trees and had a cool, eclectic feel
there was live music- market lights- people enjoying cocktails
it's simplicity- yet fun- atmosphere reminded me of home so much. 
 mr. monaco and his 90 year old grandma
 her parents were so appreciative of my daily photo shares 
that i took quite a few of her and her brother- plus she's so cute.
baby boy loved the beach - 18 weeks
 yesterday i shared some motherhood inspriations in my life
this amazing mom is another one- she makes it look so effortless and is so graceful
i admire her and just wish we lived closer!
tiny baby toes 
beach life selfie 
i thought this little tooth fairy {for a boy} was so cute!
there was also one for little girls
 aunt nellie loves a good snuggle 
a delicious dinner at frank's 
i read where'd you go bernadette on the beach and really enjoyed the humor!
have you read it?

let your soul and spirit fly."

hope you are having a great day!
 what are your favorite things to do at the beach?
as a kid, i loved staying on the beach until late in the evening
{absolutely love it when the sun goes down and the sand becomes cool}
 walks on the beach at night with my sister
beer butt chicken for dinner
my dad making {virgin and then non-virgin} cocktails and bringing appetizers out to the pool
playing lots of games and having a family puzzle 
{we always work on it throughout the week- sometimes late into the night #addicts}
seafood dinners out
watching them make salt water taffey at barefoot landing
putt putt golfing 
and most importantly, forgetting all your cares for a week.
