Girl's Weekend at the Beach/Update on Mom!

My sister and I are headed out this afternoon after I get off work to spend the weekend at Kure Beach, North Carolina with our girl cousins (on my Dad's side)!!! Won't that be fun? Rest, relaxation, good food, talking and laughing will be the highlights of our weekend. Who knows what else we will get into. I will be sure to take lots of pictures. This is the same beach that Tom, Adelaide and I went to this summer, so I am so excited to be going back in the fall.
The weather is supposed to be gorgeous this weekend, so I am thrilled!

My Mom came home from Duke on Wednesday and she is doing good! Praise God!!! The doctor felt like the surgery went well, but we don't know anything yet about her vision until things settle down in her eye. Still praying for some recovery of vision and that her retina will not detach again. She goes back to Duke in a week for a follow-up.

I hope all of you have a delightful weekend filled with those special things that you love. Enjoy doing whatever makes you happy and spending time with those folks that are special in your life.

Love & blessings from NC!

  22. Hope your trip with your sister and cousins was just the "ticket" for some R&R! Glad your mom's eye surgery went well. My mom had a detached retina years ago and i have had two surgeries on tears on my retina. Must run in the family!

    Love the picture of your Mom and your two beautiful daughters!

    Happy Autumn, Friend!


  24. That's one thing about living in the mountains...I'm surrounded by some of the the most amazing beauty, but, alas, no beach! Praying for you sweet mom and hoping God's greatest blessings upon you and your family:)
