from the mountains to the sea.

hey folks! today i’m writing from my parents’ beach house. specifically their deck which overlooks sea water. yay!! that’s right, after two very long years without the north carolina coast, we are finally back. back to one of the places that i consider home. one of the places that has remained a constant in my life, when everything else around me has changed.

we left the mountains yesterday morning and made the 7 hour drive across the state, stopping several times along the way. sometimes out of necessity, and sometimes just to soak in the moment.

we almost ran out of gas at one point (i was over confident), but our trusty navigation system took us on a little countryside tour to find a little country gas station in the middle of nowhere just in time. we literally rolled in on fumes. oops.

20130730-115528.jpgwe stopped at a roadside stand to buy fresh, local fruit and veggies. which, i’ll be cooking for lunch very soon!

20130730-115551.jpgand we stopped at the famous wilber’s barbecue in goldsboro… a family and downeast favorite for bbq and hush puppies. deeeelish!

20130730-115610.jpgwe made it to the beach just in time to see this amazing sunset. eat dinner. and then snuggle up in our cozy little room. i can’t believe we made it to my parents’ place… after all the dreaming and longing to be here for two years.

20130730-120000.jpgand so, this morning, i have the ultimate pleasure of sitting here, feet up, sun baking my skin, gazing out over the water, watching boats go by. and man, is it hot. and peaceful. and perfect.

20130730-114128.jpgafter a long and crazy month, we are bringing july to a close with a little vacation time. work in sweden is over, the flight and move to the states is done, and our asheville apartment (and all other practical details ) is complete. so now, it’s a week of vacay for us before back to real living in our new life.

while i’m a beach bum, i’m planning on doing quite a few blog posts, creating august’s photo journey (check back tomorrow!), riding boats, reading books, eating yummy food, and just being me. connected. relaxed. in love with life.

oh, my gosh, i’m a lucky girl.

sending peace & love all around the world (och många kramar till alla mina släkt och vänner i sverige! jag saknar er!).
