Campsies, y'all.

Well, to my friends and family's surprise, I survived our camping trip! I turned off my email, slept outside, woke up before the sun and loved it so much we're already planning our next trip to Jekyll Island. We have a list of things we want to remember to do or not do next time but for a "first pancake", it was pretty great. ( Thanks for the new line, Ginny - Ha! )

No one was able to sleep much on the first night but being awake to watch the sun rise over the water made it totally worth the lack of sleep.

These are the first pictures I've taken at sunrise in a long time - I might be addicted to the beautiful light in the morning. We'll see if that will be enough motivation to get out of bed a little earlier! ;)

We went to the driftwood beach at just the right time to see the beautiful pastel colors as the sun set. It was magical!

I'm coming back to real life inspired and refreshed. Our little weekend getaway was just what I needed!
