Birthday/Mother’s Day Trip ’15

Hey everyone!

Long time no see, eh? Sorry for my absence lately…it’s been CRAZY BUSY around here! Among other things, I went on a solo trip to see my family in Virginia, like I did last year. I said then, “Maybe this should become a yearly tradition for me” and I’m thinking that sounds like a GREAT plan! Unless you ask my 15 year old…Hahaha! (She had to cook, clean & do all my chores.) 🙂

I went by train May 1st, went and saw my lil sis in Virginia Beach, then went to Mama’s. I was able to stay til May 10th, which was super nice! The only real “down” side was I was traveling (including a layover) ALL day on Mother’s Day. (I finally arrived home at 12:35am so technically it wasn’t Mother’s Day any more.)

I had such an AWESOME time seeing all my family again…and being able to spend special time with both my sisters while I was there!!! I had a blast seeing all my nieces, nephews and their kids too! (Aunt Nay Nay loves y’all to the moon and back!)

I’ll be posting a new recipe (or 2!) soon, but in the meantime, I hope you enjoy the pics from my 2015 Virginia Trip!

With much love,

Our walk in to the beach. Such beautiful waves! There were several dudes surfing that day...in wet suits cuz it was kinda cold.
