An amazing sunset and a full moonrise

Well, the time has come for us to leave this magical place in West Virginia.

Early tomorrow morning we are headed for the beach in the outer banks to have one more week all together.

From the first time I visited West Virginia back in 2007 I felt at home. It was like I had grown up here.

Not only did Will’s family welcome me with open arms but so did their friends, the mountains, the trees and this fresh mountain air.

There are good people here. Good, good people. And the love in this family is like no other love I have felt before.

It won’t be long until we are all together here again. After all, Christmas is right around the corner.

I leave you with this last WV post with an amazing sunset and full moonrise from a magical and secret place.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Our last day in Portugal

Today was our last day here.

It was a relaxing day spent mostly at home with family coming by to say their goodbyes.

Days like this are always hard for me.

I’m not good at saying goodbye and it seems to be getting harder as I get older.

The longer the stay, the harder it seems to say goodbye.

I keep thinking about my parents the next few days (they are always the hardest) without Lily to wake up to.

This makes me sad…

We had a great month all together and I’m so thankful for that.

Can’t wait until we can all be together again.

These photos were taken at the park yesterday. We got one last sunset at the park. 🙂

The park after hours

Lily and I went to the park late afternoon yesterday.

We played with the sand, went on the swings, the slide, watched the ducks (Lily’s favorite).

We also caught an amazing sunset because we stayed longer than usual.

It was great seeing the park in a different light.

A saturday afternoon with daddy

Saturday afternoon while I went on a little shopping outing with a friend, Lily and Will had some daughter and daddy time to themselves.

Will took Lily to the park at South Point.

A great park that was renovated a while ago where you can catch some great sunsets as well as watch the ships go by.

They had a great time!

All photos by Will (aka Lily’s dad). Not only is he a great husband and father but he is also an awesome photographer. 😉
