Hey y’all, Happy Unofficial Start of Summer, aka Memorial Day Weekend! I hope you all have founds ways to enjoy the outdoors, a place to put your feet up and relax, but most of all a way to show your gratitude and appreciation for the men and women that serve our country and protect our freedom (the reason for the season).
This time of year is when I start planning out all of the great ways to have fun in Raleigh over the next few months. Some of my favorite things are movies, concerts, and often times free. Here are a couple of ways to fill your time this summer in and about Raleigh:
Greetings from Oak Island! This weekend my better half and I added an extra day to our already extended weekend and sprinted off to the beach, Oak Island NC to be exact. I’d love to tell you all about it, but you’ll have to wait until Thursday for my Oak Island Must-Do list. Right now I’m too busy soaking it all in. Don’t miss Thursday’s post!
If you’ve been following the blog or my Instagram or Twitter you’ve seen how busy my Summer has been. I still laugh thinking back to when Jason said that this year needed to be vacation-less because last year was so crazy. This has definitely been our busiest Summer yet and even though we still have one major-ish vacation left I wanted to share some of my favorite memories that you may or may not have seen.
The top two photos are from Memorial Day, Jackson’s first time at the beach! He was such a beach-bum we can’t wait to bring him back! The other picture was our view from the top balcony of the house we rented. It was a fantastic place!
