Life's a Beach

Well, things are getting better. I have been to the doctor and have prescriptions. The big job is almost complete - missing furniture has been found, I have a back-up-handy man coming tomorrow (thank you Sweetie!) and everyone is seemingly in better spirits despite the rocky middle of this past week. We all thank you all for your prayers and good ju ju sent this way...Things were looking grim but today we turned the corner. Knock on wood.

Now I have to focus on other things. Like getting ready for vacation next week. No small feat, I promise. It never ceases to amaze me how much work goes into "relaxing." It's crazy!
We are going to Vicksburg, Miss. for one day so Wylie can do his history/war thing, and then it is on to Destin. If anyone knows of any good antiquing/flea marketing or great local restaurants at either stop let me know - I would love to know what is good off -the- beaten -tourist- path...

We are staying at a house which will be lovely, but not as lovely as if Beach Dwelling had decorating it - which is where all these photo's are from. I just love their idea of beach life. So open and soothing. I am going to have to keep myself from redecorating the rental house in my mind while we are there...See how hard it already is to relax and not work, and I am not even there yet!

  1. You are going to have a great time! The beaches are so beautiful in Destin. I used to live in a little town north of there called Niceville! Don't know about the shopping since I haven't been back for seven years. Have fun!

  3. Sounds like a fun trip. I have no idea where that is, but it sounds good. I will have to look it up online.
    Beautiful pictures, by the way.
