For those of you who follow me on Instagram (@katiemperdue) you know that we took an impromptu trip to the beach this past weekend. We were originally going to go to Atlanta to catch a Braves game, but with the cooler temps and lower humidity in the air, I was craving some time on the coast. Some may say its crazy, and that the fall is no time to go to the beach. But I disagree. I think the fall is possibly my most favorite time to head east. The beaches are deserted, there are no crowds, and you aren’t sweating to death when you’re sitting there. Plus, its off season, so it is WAY WAY WAY cheaper.
When we got there, ECU was playing on TV and Landon needed a nap, so John offered to stay back and let L nap while he watched the game. I enjoyed some much needed mommy time on the beach…all by my lonesome. It was absolute heaven. We ate at our favorite restaurant, The Provision, strolled the streets of our favorite little town, Southport, NC, and enjoyed soaking in the last few days of summertime before we officially dive into some fall weather. Its probably the most relaxed I have been in a really, really long time.
I figured I’d share our trip via the Instagram pictures I posted (and a couple I didn’t). I took my Nikon, but hardly used it- which was kind of nice. Sometimes its about enjoying the memories you are making rather than capturing them on your camera.
One last beautiful, perfect weekend. Just what the doctor ordered.
