We all have days where we would rather be somewhere else than where we are. Right now, still dealing with so much snow I truly wish I could get on a plane and spend a couple of weeks in a casual beach house.
Located in North Carolina and built by Blue Sky Building Company, this beach house features the best in casual coastal interiors. Warmth comes from tongue and groove Cypress walls and comfortable slipcovered furniture.
The home sits by a tidal creek in a coastal marsh area with ocean views. Truly the perfect scenario to escape to!

Dream Come True
Imagine yourself here, going kayaking or simply staying here to watch the sunset. Wouldn’t that be a special experience?
Oh, how late I am with this post! I am sorry everyone, I just had to do some important errands in town and came back late to finish this post.
So, how are you feeling today? I am super happy because I just finished talking to a very special friend of mine and it was wonderful. Isn’t it great when you spend some time with people that can truly understand you?
If you have someone like that in your life, make sure to cherish this person and always make them know how much they mean to you. Real friends are rare and we’re blessed when we “find” one.
We will talk some more tomorrow!
