Distance really does make the heart grow fonder.
I really miss my family now that I live away from them. The time I spend with them now is so enjoyable because of its rarity. Today my mother, father and cousin Kendra (who is 6 months preggers!) went to a beach in Calvert County, Maryland, about an hour from where they live. The beach was hidden at the end of a short trail, away from the large and congested “commercial beaches” near Chesapeake Bay.
It was so relaxing, and my mother made some really great fried chicken! Doesn’t she look great in this picture?
I collected alot of wonderful seashells that I hope to incorporate in my newest jewelry collection. Other than that, it was refreshing just being in good company with the people I love the most.
