Sunday Thoughts and Vaca Photos

Good Sunday morning to you! Today Ryan and I are moving my little brother out of my parent's house into his first apartment. He's the baby boy of the family, and this is kind of a big deal for my mom, I'm sure. She'll finally be an "empty nester" which will be a first for her since 1981 when I was born. This is a start of a new season of life for my brother and my mom and I pray that they are both able to cherish and appreciate the feelings and changes that will come along with it. 

This morning I wanted to share a few more photos from our vacation to Charleston + Clearwater. I loved every single part of our trip, and it'd be hard to pick one favorite thing about it. I will say that our time spent on the beach, under the cabana, listening to the waves crash on the beach while we sipped cocktails and read books, was probably the most rejuvenating. One day we decided to make no plans for the entire day, other than to go to our cabana and go with the flow. That day was probably the most "vaca" like. We took naps on the beach and ate nachos with pina coladas at the beach bar. We walked hand in hand and dipped our feet in the water as we took in the heavenly sites. We jumped the waves like little kids, only to go back and dry off in the sun, just to do it all again. 

One of the books I was reading was by Frederick Buechner, The Alphabet of Grace. I was lead to his books when I read some of his work, like:

Listen to your life.
See it for the fathomless mystery that it is. 
In the boredom and pain of it no less than
in the excitement and gladness:
touch, taste, smell your way
to the holy and hidden heart of it 
because in the last analysis all moments
are key moments, 
and life itself is grace.
