Where Have I Been?

Added on Friday, Aug. 14: Just checked into the Etsy Bloggers message board and discovered this is one of the topics for the blog carnival! What luck!

Well, it seems that I am no longer grateful on a daily basis. Not so, dear friends, just haven't recorded anything here for what appears to be several weeks. I've been preoccupied with things out in the real world like daughter's graduation and party, and guests, and her move, and just all the other more mundane parts of life. My Etsy shops have been neglected as well, but a few lovely buyers have stopped in to both of them and I am truly grateful for them.

So, with all that busyness, some time in early July I decided we would need a vacation. After taking my mother and mother-in-law to the airport last week, 6 of us headed southeast to the Georgia coast. Specifically to St. Simon's Island. And we had a lovely time. Lots of pictures were taken, but here are a couple. The first is our view of the Atlantic Ocean from our condo balcony. The second is standing on the beach looking back at our condo. See the red swim trunks hanging from the balcony? That was ours!

I love a beach vacation! something about sun and sand and salt water....the sound of the waves rolling onto the shore....aaah..the relaxation of it!

Great shots, looks like a relaxing time. I've never even heard of St. Simon's island -- off to look it up. Ooh, after I visit that link to fabric in your sidebar!! (uh-oh...hehe.)

Congrats to your daughter on her graduation! And thanks for participating in the EtsyBloggers blog carnival.

great to be able to see and hear the ocean from your vacation digs! Hope the graduation hoopla went smoothly. Thanks for participating in the carnival!
