It's Friday!

Hey Everyone! This isn't going to be one of my normal posts, but these pictures are so pretty I had to share them with you! So, last week I went back home to Virginia Beach for Spring Break! Such a nice change from the still cold temps of the Midwest. Anyways, while I was home, we took a day trip to the Outer Banks. It was a bit of a cloudy day, but the temperature was nice and with almost no one on the beach, it was very peaceful.

The area is still suffering from the effects of Hurricane Sandy. You can see piles of sand shoveled up in people's front yards. The house pictured above and below is one of the few houses still standing so close to the beach. Most of the others were destroyed during the hurricane.

The beach also had so many beautiful seashells. I collected quite a bit and am planning on using them for decorations for the apartment!

And finally, I had to include this picture. I saw this and I thought it was the cutest thing ever. I mean come on, a "baby dune," how is that not picture worthy?

I'm also linking up with Whitney for #backthatazzup Friday

Taking it back to the 90's this week. I love this song

  6. I love the Outer Banks! My sister got married there 2 summers ago, right on the beach. Sad to see that so much was destroyed.
