Every Spring we build a sandcastle. For us, Spring is the best time of the year to hit the beach. I hate the heat of summer and the water gets so warm during June and July that it won't really cool you down much. I have a ton of photos of us going to the beach during the spring and building sandcastles. It took me rifling through them all to realize that I had a family tradition. You may have a hidden tradition of your own. Sift through your photos of each season and look for similarities. Are there things you do around the same time every year? This year, instead of documenting the event on it's own, tell the story of how it has become an annual family event.

  1. Such a great page! Love your misting and the white die cut in the background. Wish I lived close enough to the beach to visit in the off-season.

  2. So pretty Christy!! Love the colors in the background to mimic the sky and sand and the white die cut is really beautiful! And that is such a great photo with the blue of the ocean in the background!
