i try so hard when i am on vacation not to get sad about leaving too early on in the vacation. like do the countdown until the turn of reality. but it's unavoidable to realize we leave tomorrow. so it's perfect to reflect a love list. 1. God's provision for a vacation in Hilton Head. Dream come true. [caption id="attachment_333" align="alignleft" width="200" caption="Yeah! Vacay! (and Father's Day!)"]

4. Naps. 5. Finishing a book. (read my sister's keeper and can't wait to see the movie, what a story!) 6. Doritos and lots of cold fruit. 7. A feeling of having time. [caption id="attachment_337" align="alignright" width="200" caption="hanging at south beach about to try my first smoothie"]

The way the ocean always puts me in my place. Humbled, awed at its vastness and beauty and life. 10. The fact that i felt more confident with the least trim bathing suit body i have ever had in a bathing suit. and i even wore a mommy skirt. a little self-grace. awesome.
Ahhh, this was good. thank you Lord.
