snippets from a weekend on the water

This past weekend was a whirlwind of fun! A bit of sadness but mostly fun.

Friday night we {well really our friend Art hosted it!} had a going away party for our friends Cassie {second from the right} and her husband Brandon. They are PCSing {moving} in a few weeks to Monterrey, CA. The Navy giveth great friends and they Navy taketh away great friends. 

It was a great time to catch up with some of our Junior League girlfriends. We are no longer provisionals, yay for being first year actives!


Saturday morning we woke up early to spend the day out on the water soaking up the sun and just relaxing.  We have been talking about doing this for months and since Cassie and Brandon only have a few weeks left we needed to make it happen.  Brandon was so awesome and organized all the details and we just showed up.

This was our view for most of the day! I took only a handful of pictures as the 5 of us were enjoying being carefree on the water. The day was perfect and having not a care in the world for a good 8 hours was a fantastic feeling.  We drove up the Chesapeake Bay towards Yorktown, pulled up to a dock and had a great afternoon of seafood and beer for lunch and then headed back south for more swimming.  Having the wind in my hair and the smell of salt water all around me reminded of how great our life really is. How blessed we are to have great friends and the opportunity to enjoy life. 


After we got home we managed to take Khloe on a walk and were blessed by a beautiful sunset.  These pictures do not even do the sunset justice. The sky and water were both a beautiful shade of pink.  It was so calming and again, a beautiful reminder from God just how blessed we are and just how awesome he is. 


I hope you had a wonderful weekend as well! xo

Love this --> " Having the wind in my hair and the smell of salt water all around me reminded of how great our life really is. How blessed we are to have great friends and the opportunity to enjoy life.
So true! Today as I spent a long portion of my afternoon sitting outside, I thought similar thoughts.
