1. I thought since I have dusted off the old blog I should post a good old fashioned 10 on Tuesday.  In my old blogging days these posts were a fave and I still love to look back on the old ones.  Little bits of random love and chaos.

2. We’ve found ourselves unexpectedly shopping for a new RV.  Honestly, I’m dreading it – it’s such a process.  Not only is it a time to re-evaluate and dig deep, even finding a rig during Covid times is a borderline nightmare.

3.  Spotted these two snuggling on the couch today….

4. I almost always take Zachary to the grocery store with me and he always […]

Best Shelling in the Outer Banks, Portsmouth Island Adventures

We have been in the Outer Banks for a solid week and have been shelling quite a bit.  While we have had some luck, we were hoping for more.  While in Ocracoke last weekend we spotted a sign for Portsmouth Island Adventures and I called to set up a shelling tour.  Basically, they take you out to Portsmouth on a boat and drop you off for a few hours, then they come back to get you.  It very much feels like a deserted island!  The ride out was pretty chilly but it was a gorgeous day!  We brought chairs, a small cooler, my camera bag, a backpack and some big shelling bags with a few scoopers.  We bought

Today we went and found a playground near the beach.  Z absolutely loved the pirate ship playscape because he’s super in to pirates right now!  He loved the dolphin and my mom teaching him how to pump his legs on the swing too.

Today we trekked out to Ocracoke Island.  It’s an hours drive from Nags Head in the Outer Banks plus a one hour ferry ride.  We had so much fun and made some wonderful memories.  We were hoping to score some really amazing shells.  We found some, but it wasn’t at all what we’d hoped for even at low tide.  But!  We did see a sign for shelling tours out to an island and booked that for later this week!  So excited!

Her Outer Banks Bucket List

Over Christmas I asked my mom if there was anywhere on her bucket list that she had never been, but had always wanted to go.  She immediately answered “Outer Banks, North Carolina” without giving it a thought.  I immediately said, “let’s do it!”  So we started planning this stop and she flew in to meet us here.  We were here less than 30 minutes before we ventured out to the beach in search of shells.  We found a few keepers and I loved all the purple pieces so much.  I’m so happy to spend the next 8 days exploring with my favorite people!  Tomorrow […]

My birth story, 45 years later

2021-04-09T21:28:54-05:00July 6th, 2020|My Family, Gee, Lyndsay|

It’s my 45th birthday today and I received the most precious gift. As a long time birth photographer, I’ve captured the stories of so many births. But it wasn’t until recently that I realized I didn’t know much about my own. I asked my mom to write it out for me as a birthday gift this year. Instead, she audio recorded it in 3 parts, their fertility struggles, her pregnancy and my birth. All in her own words and it just means the world to me. 🥰 I was a miracle baby and a shocking surprise, so it’s a fun story. Thanks mom!
