2Peas Project: Beach For You

In June I had the amazing opportunity to accompany my mom out to Savannah, Georgia. She was presenting at a conference and as I had lived there for four years with my family, I wanted to go back for a visit.

One of the things I loved most about living on the coast was, of course, the beach. With our little family of three, it was often hard to pack up and get to the ocean, but I can tell you now that I'd wish we could have spent every possible free moment there. There is something so soothing about the beach.

While on my trip I visited Hilton Head Beach in South Carolina, and Tybee Island Beach in Georgia. The pictures I took only give a small glimpse into how beautiful and varied these two beaches are. One day I bought myself a little beach chair and sat there for hours just reading a book. The sound of the ocean soothes my spirit. I don't necessarily even need to be in the water. I just want be near it!

I created a layout about my experience at the beach and it was uploaded to the 2Peas Garden Girl Gallery last week. I thought I would share it here. It's a softer look for me, but completely conveys the feelings I hold for my beloved beaches:

Here is a close-up photo of the project:

  1. Love the swings there on Tybee! I live in Savannah and go there often! Growing up on the west coast, I've found I like the east coast beach more! It's warmer! Glad you got to visit! Love your layout!

  2. It's a beautiful page, Jen. I am glad you enjoyed your time there. I have only seen the ocean once... Bodega Bay in northern Cali.

  4. So soft and pretty. I feel relaxed just looking at it!

  5. Love how your paper choices perfectly compliment the soft colors of your photos! I also am loving those little circles that look like they are floating on the layout! :)
