coming home

We’re officially home from our vacation to Ocracoke, (insert big pouty face here). I've made it through two long 12 hour shifts back at the hospital, (insert SUPER pouty face here).

 Isn’t it true that just about the time you really get into vacation mode, its time to pack up and head back to the real world? We had an amazing time, a week I am truly so thankful to have considering its our last vacation without a little one in the house. I cherish these times with John, just the two of us. As excited as we are to become parents to our little boy, I am also trying to savor every moment we have until the little man makes his grand entrance to the world. It’s an odd balance between anticipating the future and planning and preparing, yet living in each moment and taking each day as it comes. Our vacation reminded me of that, and I am so, so thankful to have had a beautiful week at the coast with my husband.

Our week was full of sun, sand, and fun, but it was also full of mornings sleeping in, not picking up after ourselves, and flying by the seat of our pants. It. was. glorious. I was able to take Mr. Nikon along and catch some great shots of the coast, my favorite place ever. Here’s a few of my favorites.

The hubster and I at the Ocracoke Lighthouse.

I shot these while John was doing some sound fishing at sunset…I love them, they’re probably my absolute favorites.

Silver Lake Harbor, Ocracoke

Another lighthouse view (I hate that the powerlines are in the shot…what can ya do?), and an Adirondack chair with a great view.

You can head over to my flickr page to see the rest of my shots from the week!
