Jeremy and I have been vacationing to the OBX almost every year since we got married. We got married in Kitty Hawk and whenever we need to unwind and relax it really is the only place that makes sense for us. There is something about the salt air and the sound of crashing waves that really seems to rejuvenate us.

This was our second vacation as a family of 3 plus 2 pups and was by far one of the greatest experiences I have ever had. We stayed in a pet friendly VRBO right on the water and spent 4 nights. Every day we were on the beach for hours walking up and down searching for purples (smooth purple shell pieces) and sea glass which is a tradition we started before we were married. Fin LOVED hunting for shells and exploring, and was mesmerized by the surfers. She even got upset when they crashed! The most amazing part of our trip was watching Finley embrace the beach life and fall in love with it as much as Jeremy and I have over the years. Overall our trip was one of my favorite vacations and cannot wait to go back! There is so much I could share about it but I would rather share some of our photos!! Below are a TON of my favorites :) Hope you enjoy them as much as we do!!
