The Outer Banks

So, for President's Day weekend we decided to explore the outer banks of North Carolina with some friends. Seriously, it was just what the doctor ordered. It was beautiful, relaxing and so much fun. The perfect weekend getaway. It also reminded me of all the Nicholas Sparks novels I filled my head with in junior high. Do you feel like they all take place here? Or is it just me?

An ocean kind of girl, I honestly think I'm happiest when I'm by the seaside... and Hunter's side (my apologies for being a cheesy). We saw three (!) lighthouses in one day and a couple of gorgeous sunsets (no sunrises, we took advantage of sleeping in).

And then we stopped by Colonial Williamsburg in Virginia on the way back, where we saw lots of pretty brick buildings, people dressed up in period costumes and did silly stuff like posing in the stocks:

Being new to the east coast (I'm from Southern California), it was great to see a part of the country I had never been to before. While I don't think I'll ever get used to the cold weather, this place is definitely growing on me...
