Following a Dream

This is my debut blog on Coastal Parenting.  I can not take credit for the idea, a great friend and fellow blogger, suggested this blog and thought it would be a great fit for me.  Almost three years ago, my husband and I took a leap of faith, we sold our house, quit our jobs and moved 850 miles south to a little barrier island off the coast of South Carolina.  It had been a dream for a long time, and three years later here we are still living our dream.

When we moved  my children were 3 & 5, and we rented a house sight unseen off of craigslist.  Three years, two houses, and one surprise later we find ourselves with a mortgage, and a beautiful baby!  Parenting at the beach is unique.  We still have Saturday’s on the soccer field, and birthday parties, but our soccer fields share a parking lot with the beach, and are birthday parties are usually sandy.

I hope you enjoy this blogging adventure as I take you through tips and tricks, recipes and adventures all geared towards parents who  love or live at the beach.
