Life Through My Lens | Waves, North Carolina

I forgot I never shared this post from our trip this summer, but I still wanted to document it! So here we are six months later ;)


Spending a week at the beach was just what the doctor ordered! This year my dads family ventured down to the outer banks to the little town of Waves. We had never been to the OBX before so we really had no idea what to expect. I really don't even know if I can put into words of how much I loved this vacation. It was so peaceful and relaxing. Filled with family time and so much laughter. Coming home was so hard. I also had every intention of using my fancy camera, but when it came down to it- my iphone was what I reached for. Simplicity. 
We've arrived!!!! And I get to see this view every day!? Wow!!!

My heart. I love them so

Celebrating birthdays at the beach is always better, right?

Three of my favorite things..Lissy, the beach and North Carolina

If you're vacationing in the Waves/Rodanthe/Avon area, you need to eat at Open Water Grill....it was to die for! Not to mention- gorgeous views! 
Happy hour + sisters
Watching the sunrise was one of the most breathtaking things...and of all the times I've been at the beach I've never watched it! I'm so glad Lissy and I got up early to see it!!

That time we got stuck in a rain storm on the beach. We got soaked but laughed the whole time! 

One of my favorite things was making up theme nights! So three of the nights we stayed in and one of the groups cooked- the other nights we went out to eat. We had a luau theme (seafood boil), italian, and a twilight themed night. Next year I'll remember my selfie stick s we can get better group shots :)
My sister brought her dog, Jax, also referred to "Puppers"...we loved having our coffee together every morning! 

Thank you Dad and Carla for the best trip!! We love you!!! Until next time, Waves!
