Feeling... Beachy?

Can you believe that July is almost over? 
 
The past couple weeks have been so crazy! Independence Day celebrations, one of my best friend's birthdays, a good friend's wedding, my family reunion and my oldest niece, Ronnica, got married, throw in a couple of chemotherapy treatments and other appointments that I had to drive Amazing Boyfriend to (oh, I can't forget about work) and it's no wonder that I'm a little tired. And a little behind...
 
Sadly, my beautiful patriotic ribbon wreath has finally been taking down.  

Luckily, I've created a new wreath to take it's place...

Anyone else feeling beachy? 

Lately, I've really been missing the beach. Once upon a time, when Amazing Boyfriend was in the Coast Guard, he and I lived on the coast. I loved everything about living there, the beach being so close, the small town, the simplicity of life. Don't get me wrong, life wasn't perfect there, but ever since we've moved inland I've missed living so close to the ocean.


I think that's where the inspiration came from to incorporate some shells into my wreath for a coastal feel.








I think this wreath might be inspiring a beach trip soon...
