Family Moments from Our Grand Getaway




Last month, we slipped away for a few days of leisure at one of my favorite escapes, The Grand Hotel Golf Resort & Spa in Point Clear, Ala. We missed our annual visit last summer, so for months before our family vacation, I dreamed of strolling the gardens, lounging by the sea, and riding bicycles around the idyllic property.





Joe and I are celebrating our 25th anniversary, so this trip offered a lovely observance of that milestone.





Throughout the summer, the house has seemed to swell and shrink as Carson came home from college but then different children leave for camps and other trips, so we took full advantage of having all four available for a weekend away. I'm always happiest to have all of my babies together!





This trip was also special in that Carson's sweet girlfriend, Mallory, joined us for all of the fun.






Mallory shares my love of beauty, photography, and afternoon tea, so I knew that she would enjoy the Queen of Southern Resorts. She was a lovely addition to our group and appreciated all of the amenities just as much as I thought she would!





Emma was so little when we made our first trip to The Grand years ago, and now she is a teenager -- and taller than big sister Mary Ashley!





I love and adore these three girls!





And I'm so grateful for each moment spent with these precious four.





And to think, it all began 25 years ago with these two!

It has taken me around 10 years to find your blog again! I found you 2009 while searching Back to School tea parties. My dd (was 6) is now 16 YO and I see your beautiful family has also been thriving. You must get an Instagram so you can share more posts and blog information. All the best. ~Jess (please LMK if you have one as I was unable to find info on your blog)

Hi Jess, thank you for the comment! It sounds like we have been on similar parenting journeys from raising tots to teens. You can find me on Instagram @alittleloveliness.
