The Rainbow House

A synopsis of our family getaway to St. George Island! We have been going to the "forgotten" coast of Florida for 17 years, sporadically only in the last 5 years because of work and school schedules. It is pretty much the way I remember it as a teenager. Quiet, beautiful and the perfect relaxation spot. We saw dolphins swim by our house every day, ate our weight in seafood and slept in!

I recently purchased a new DSLR camera and a week at the beach was the perfect time to practice. I have a lot to learn! My tech-savvy sister gave me a basic tutorial in Photoshop, so here it goes...


Boss Oyster in Apalachicola has traditionally been our favorite restaurant, although this year, we thought their oysters were more expensive and not quite as delicious as their competitors. But, the atmosphere is great - you eat dinner with the birds on the bay. Sometimes they fight you for your entree!


So proud of my sister who just graduated from Georgia with a degree in landscape architecture...she is LEED certified too! Doesn't she look at ease?



My precious parents celebrate their 30th wedding anniversary this year...


...and Josh and I have our first right around the corner.

Love my sweet family and feel so lucky to have been able to spend an entire week with them! Can't wait until next year.
