  2. My happy place would be any little town that has tons of thrift and antique stores :) I'm not a fan of the beach, actually, like the mountains much better. Glad you had such a nice time.

  69. I've been searching HIGH and LOW for a similar photo to hang in our kitchen (the first one). I know it would be weird to hang someone else's vacation spot on my wall, but I wish it were for sale!! We try every year to capture a great shot of our fave vacation beach, Holden Beach, NC, but nothing really turns out. Just gorgeous.

    ReplyDelete
  70. I LOVE THE BEACH!! These photos are absolutely wonderful, they make me want to jump in the car and go back to the beach right now! Just wanted you to know I featured your pics over at this week's Photo Show Off with Love Bug!
