the best laid plans....

Monday, September 10, 2012

What is that saying about "the best laid plans"?.....well, sometimes things just don't work out as expected.....and sometimes, well, life happens....

We had to cancel our trip to Mexico, at the very last minute.  A huge bummer, I know.  Without going into too much detail, it had to do with work, {not mine, Chris'}.  We are both so sad to not be downing chips and margaritas while sunbathing with two of our best friends right now, but we wish them an amaaazzinngg vacation and a happy one year anniversary.

Wallowing in our sorrows, we needed a day to ourselves, time to relax, a small retreat; so we headed to our favorite spot on the outer banks.
A little kite surfing{Chris} and a lot of sunbathing{me} helped to ease away some of our sadness.  We had a picnic on the beach as well as a nap.  And watching some pretty amazing wind & kite surfing on waves compliments of tropical storm Leslie was completely awe-inspiring.
The view was spectacular and the beach was almost deserted, giving us a private show of God's breathtaking beauty.  It truly made our day brighter.  

Yes, we are disappointed about Mexico, but we will be fine.  We remedied our mexicoma* with lots of junk food, a day at the beach, and sweet time with each other.  Not like we planned, but our weekend was wonderful.

*sex and the city? duh.
