Destination Thanksgiving

Back in July, my oldest had a baseball showcase tourney in Pensacola, Florida.


Prior to that, I'd had a creative's conference in the same location and fell in love!



So leave it to me to try and plan Thanksgiving at Pensacola Beach in less than three months for our entire family!



All the family was on board and I had began planning for a fun-filled week at the beach. What I had not planned for was the death of the matriarch of our family, my grandmother, Bessie Lee Alexander, just barely a week before our trip was scheduled. Planning for the trip had become even more overwhelming mixed with grieving and preparing for the funeral.



Since accommodations were already confirmed and because we didn't want to sit around the family home moping, we ventured ahead to Pensacola Beach.

Overall, our family's first ever Destination Thanksgiving was amazing! The opportunity to break away and spend dedicated time together as a family was exactly what we needed! God certainly had worked all the things out. This trip and the timing was all in His plan!


Thank you to Paradise Beach Homes for making the process effortless and flawless!
