Tomorrow we leave for the Outer Banks of North Carolina! In case you’ve never heard of the area, it’s a very narrow peninsula that runs down about half the length of the state and has the most amazing beaches I’ve been to in the US, plus the water is warm there! It’s real claim to fame though is that it’s where the Wright Brothers took their first flight on an airplane over a hundred years ago.
We stay far far up north where it’s newly developed, quiet, with huge clean beaches and wild horses spotted sometimes. It’s pure summer heaven, and a family tradition- we’ve been going since I was very young! I’ve been excited for this trip for months and finally tomorrow’s the day! Henry and I will be gone for two full weeks and Jared will join us halfway through. There are plenty of great posts on the calendar while I’m away, so don’t you worry your pretty little heads!
Here are some links to check out from this week, have a great one:
