Country Living...Island Dreaming

Take Me Away Recap - July 2017

And here we are in August already!  I always feel kind of sad when July ends.  To me, July is the middle of the summer, when there is still time to enjoy all the warm weather activities and no one is really thinking ahead to fall yet.  Then boom - August arrives and something just shifts.  Luckily, in New Jersey the kids don't go back to school until after Labor Day so we are going to try to make the most of what's left of summer!

And since we have flipped the calendar to August, it's almost time to share your latest travel posts!  The next Take Me Away Link Party starts tomorrow evening at 7:00 p.m. EST.  In the meantime, let's enjoy the fabulous trips you linked up last month!

Pam from Everyday Living took us on a tour of Oregon's scenic coast...

As you can tell by the title, she then continued on to Washington's Cascade Mountains!  What a beautiful area of the country!

Tanya from The Other Side of the Road did some traveling to New England this summer...

Join her on her first stop in the historic city of Boston!  She and her family covered all the important sights on this educational yet lighthearted family vacation.  Don't miss Boston Parts 2 and 3 as well!

But Boston wasn't the only place this jet-setting family visited on their New England vacation...

Follow along on their family trip to the coastal town of Kennebunkport and you will see why everyone raves about Maine.  So pretty!

They wrapped up their New England trip with a visit to Bar Harbor and Arcadia National Park...
New England - Bar Harbor

Such a gorgeous area!  Tanya said that was their favorite part of the trip...and you can tell by their smiling faces in all the pictures!  #familyvacationgoals!

Next we go farther south where Carole from the blog, From My Carolina Home takes us outside her home to reflect on the morning...

Grab a cup of coffee and imagine sitting on that porch taking in the morning views. I think if I had a porch like that, I would be out there all day!

But when you live in that beautiful of an area it's also nice to get out and explore!...
French Broad River Canoe Trip

Join Carole on her scenic canoe trip....a peaceful ride where she caught glimpses of wildlife and views of the Biltmore house in the distance.  What a nice day to remember!

Thank you to everyone who stops by each month!  Whether you are here to link up your own posts or to read others, we always enjoy having you!

Please remember to stop by 
on this Friday, August 4th
for the next Take Me Away Link Party!


Looking forward to seeing you then!
I'd love for you to follow along so you don't miss a post!

  1. Some kiddos started school last week here, the major metro area starts Monday! Why??????!! While I prefer the cooler temps of fall, summer just gets rushed here. I would love to be any of those places right now.

  3. These all look like wonderful places to visit! And I didn't know Carole or her blog and I live near the Biltmore and the French Broad river! I am going over to visit her blog right now!
