Down by the Sea

Sometimes opportunities arise that are so amazing and unexpected that they can only be considered a gift from God.  It has been several years since I have gone on vacation--Oh I have been on overnight trips but not on an honest to goodness "real" vacation.  The kind where you sit by the shores edge and just let the world go by.  
When my very best friend, Heidi, suggested that I come along to the beach with her my first response was "oh that would be wonderful but I just can't"  Who would watch Drew, who would take care of the dogs, and truly it really was not in the budget right now.  She then explained to me that the beach house was already paid for and I would be coming along to keep her company.  I almost didn't know what to say --a week with my best friend at the beach just us girls was almost too good to be true.  All the little details were worked out so I will be headed to the Outer Banks Saturday morning.   
I am sure that I will have many stories and pictures to share upon my return. I am so thankful for this opportunity and can hardly wait to spend the week enjoying Gods creation and a very special friendship.
