Most would call me sentimental and nostalgic; I love being reminding of past trips, get togethers, or fleeting moments. I love collecting photographs or items that trigger those memories and place them around our home! One of my places to visit is the beach and I think it all stems back from our family trips to St. George Island when I was a baby until we moved to Iowa. While growing up, my family lived in Georgia and every Spring break we would meet up with my our family and rent a house on the water . With Florida being only a 6 hour drive…it was like heading to Chicago from here…but WAY better!(no offense Illinois)
Though we don’t live as close any more, I have had the priveledge of visiting Florida a few times over the last couple years. One of my favorite things to there is walk along the sand and collect pretty shells. While on our most recent trip to St Marco Island, I was able to find some amazing shells and coral pieces! Once we got home I wanted to keep them out to help me reminisce of the times spent by the sea over these last 24 years!
Here’s one of our family photos from our January trip to St Marco:
