Feeling Fall

We jumped right out of summer and into fall in a matter of moments over here. Yesterday I was unpacking swimsuits, today I made decorated Halloween cookies. I guess summer is officially gone which makes me a little sad, it is my VERY favorite time of year.

We took our family vacation to the beach a little later than usual this year and thank goodness it was warm and sunny. We had lots of grace this past week–the water was beautiful, no rain and lots of high temps.

Per usual, we picked up lots of fresh seafood from Billy’s in Bon Secour on the way down and cooked all week long. Some highlights were boiled blue crab and shrimp, left over blue crab transformed into delicious jumbo lump crab cakes, fried oyster po boys, seafood gumbo and so much more. I am really missing my nightly caramel brownie and ice cream treat right about now..

We tried to keep our running up last week to counteract all the indulging but mostly just layed on the beach and enjoyed each others company, not much sweeter in the world than that.
