For a couple of years now, a friend of mine has been wanting me to join the women in her family for their annual beach trip. I spent tons of time at their house growing up, and I still attend their Thanksgiving and other family functions. It hasn't worked out to go until this year, but I finally got to join them. It was so much fun. Just what I needed. Jessica (my friend), her mom, and one of her sister-in-law's moms headed down early Wednesday. We arrived that afternoon, and the condo was great! We did some grocery shopping before the others arrived, and then had some dinner.
