Jersey Shore Strong

That TIME is upon us...earlier this year. We're heading to the surf and sand...my happy place...the place that speaks to who we are.






So, soon I'll be taking a lot more photos like these...posting them here, on Facebook and instagram to capture the beauty and memories.



And I hope you'll join me in enjoying the beauty of the Shore that survived Sandy.




So many years...



Kids growing up....one moving away...



We'll be in Ohio dropping off our eldest at Franciscan College in August.


  





Stick around for my next "set"...they'll be coming in waves.

Love, love, love all of these pics, Allison! What precious memories you've made!!! I, too, love the sea. I sometimes question why God chose this place and time (the Heartland) for me to live when truly I most at peace and feel God's love for me when I am beachside. Perhaps, that is His plan...to show me how difficult love can be, but is always possible regardless of time or place.

Hugs,
Val

P.S. We just returned from a 3,000 mile trip to south Florida from Kansas City, It was beautiful!!! But the Atlantic Ocean is so cold compared to the Gulf of Mexico!

I will be in your shoes next year. Taking pictures and amazed how fast time goes by AND letting go to a son who will be off to college. I don't know how the time went by so fast.

Your photos are beautiful. You have a beautiful holy family. You are blessed.

looking forward to more!
