Thansksgiving at the Beach

The week of thanksgiving holds many special meanings for us. It is Justin's birthday, it is the first time in 10 months Justin gets true time off, and it is a holiday! Instead of spending our time traveling, we decided to spend it near our home at the beach! We have been fortunate enough to meet some special friends while living far from our families. Most of our friends are also far from their families as well, so friends around here are like your family. The family we spent Thanksgiving with is also a coaching family, so they really understand the need of togetherness and down time, because so much of our year is spent on the go, or separated. So we did a lot of relaxing together and it was PERFECT! Take a look at our Thanksgiving....

The Olejniczak family...

The soon to be Haire family. :) The first night at the beach we found a local place by the water. We were the only people on the deck, but we couldn't resist!

Although holidays remind us of time with our extended families, it was so nice to SLOW DOWN, stop, catch our breath, remember what it's like to spend sometime as a couple. I was very thankful for the long weekend with Justin and friends.

I hope you had a happy Thanksgiving....two months ago ;)
