We spent one night at the beach watching dolphins swim in the ocean. I knew it would be a fun adventure for the kids, but we ended up having as much fun as they did! Shrimp season had just opened in Georgia and some of the boats were still out on the water. I noticed… More Captain Mike’s Dolphin Tour

Tybee Island was like stepping back into the 1950’s. The only chain restaurant on the island is Arby’s and everything else is local.… More A Week on Tybee Island

I’ve been doing much better in the past few weeks over the miscarriage, but I still felt sad that I wasn’t getting… More “My grace is all you need”
