This is what is great about blogging . . . sharing the joy in your day to day life experiences! This past week we were in Jensen Beach Florida for vacation visiting with my sister and brother-in-law. I haven't seen my sister for three years and it was so nice just to give her a hug and enjoy her much needed company. You know how that is, when you're close to someone and haven't seen them for a long time. you just want to surround yourself with them because you know it will end all too soon. Also had a chance to spend a little time with my nephew Jeremy and his wife Lindsay and their not quite-2 year old daughter, Hanna. What a cutie patootie! Here is a picture of her and my sister's hubby sharing animal crackers.

I don't have any scenic pictures because my camera died right after taking this set of photos. Disappointing, but that's okay, next time. I would have loved for you to see the ocean and pier which is directly across the street from where my sister is living. It is just beautiful, they have a great spot. Lots to do around that area too. We went on a wonderful river walk in Stuart, Florida and a drive up to Fort Pierce (lovely little town and great place to vacation)!

I got a great tan from going to the pool each day and relaxing on the pier. Overall it was a fabulous vacation! I got to visit with my family and enjoy the beautiful Florida weather too!

On the drive home we stopped in Georgia for some wonderful Georgia peaches. We also stopped at the Tammarack Artist Center in West Virginia. If you're ever heading south or north on I-77, make sure you stop and visit this place, it is awesome! I picked up a hand-blown glass flower and an item that resembles a Hershey's kiss. Right after we left Tammarack we headed into some severe thunderstorms with wind gusts of 60 mph. Pretty nasty driving that's for sure, but we made it through and home safely. Thank You Lord!
