15 Scenes from Sunset

I’m off soaking up the last day of Sunset Beach with my friend Dorie’s family. This is my third year joining her family vacation and I couldn’t be happier to return to this very special place.

Here are 15 scenes from my time at Sunset.


Sunset from the back porch


Beach time.


Fish taco feast for 10.


The sweatiest workout at CrossFit OIB. (I went for open gym…not CrossFit!)


Shrimp and chicken grilled peanut sauce skewers.


Buying fish at the local market for fish taco night. How about that shirt behind us?




Morning runs.


A trip over to Ocean Isle Beach.


Peanut butter and jelly (with PB on both sides of the bread!)


Tastes better on the beach.


Daily breakfast.


Reading material.


My heart. <3

    LOVE IT! And those PBJ sandwiches on the beach are ALWAYS the best, even if the sand gets into them, which usually happens all the time…You look so happy! Enjoy your mermaid time…XOXO

    What a paradise! You’re so lucky to live in a warm climate with close proximity to beaches. GAH
    Rocky mountain life is great and all, but I’d trade pine trees for palm trees anyday!

    I haven’t taken my official summer vacay yet, but I’m heading off to Hawaii in September for a week. *so excited*

      I get serious run scenery envy from your snaps! SO exciting about Hawaii. Such a gorgeous place.

    Beautiful pictures! I’m seriously craving a pb&j now! We did a quick trip in April, but our big trip to OBX is in a few weeks and then we have the retreat in November. So looking forward to both!!!

      Thank you! Enjoy OBX…i have never been! it’s actually a crazy long drive from Charlotte to get to the Outer Banks.

    What book are you reading on the beach (I can’t make out the title)? And would you recommend it? I’m looking for something breezy for a vacation to CA that I have coming up!

  • Sarah July 31, 2016, 3:55 am

    Hey Jen! I’ve noticed over time you’re not crossfitting anymore. Did you ever post about why you made the change? I’d be interested to hear why!

      I answered your question in today’s post! 🙂
