two more days!!

 We leave for Florida in TWO DAYS!!!!!!!!!
I am unbelievably excited.
so pumped.
I've been looking at our pictures from last trip we made... 
such a timely trip, much much needed.
only three weeks after my little brother died.
after spending a month in the hospital.
best week we've ever had as a family- seriously.
Now, we had a baby and Jordan had a role change in his job, which up until now has had him working an incredible amount. I've had my heart junk going on and am currently, and for what feels like an enternity, 
stuck in this house.
 oh vacation...
the timing is perfect. 
(not saying the situations are the same- not even close. but a vacation after a hard period... yes, ma'am, I'll take it.)
we so need this time as a family, time just the five of us.
that's still a shock to me. 
a wonderful shock.
Sweet Nora James.
I'm excited to add her to our family beach pictures.
We have no pictures of the five of us together.
A shame, no? 
 I can't wait to see the kids' excitement about the ocean 
and the sand 
and the sun 
and a week with daddy.
Oh Florida...
I'll be seeing you soon.

"You are good, and what you do is good;
teach me your decrees."

  1. I'm incredibly jealous. It seems like forever since I've been on a beach. We're planning a trip for next year, but we're going house hunting next week, so that'll have to do. Isn't it funny how when you most need it, you do get a break? God really does know our limits. Have a wonderful time and take incredible photos for all of us. You're family will look so beauitful on the beach. Next time we should plan it so that we'll both be there at the same time so we can exchange stunning family portraits on the beach!

  2. makes me smile! Those beautiful pictures, your beautiful words. Vacations are surely a treat and so nice to look forward to!!!

  3. I'm a little jealous but so happy for you, you really deserve this!

  4. Can't wait to see pictures of your vacation...and the first picture of your family of 5 together in one shot! Have fun, and I am beyond jealous!

  5. WOOHOO!!!!!! ENJOY this time as a family of 5! I can't wait to see pictures!
