Chris and I traveled together for the first time to Corolla, North Carolina in 1999. Fifteen years ago, people! We have been traveling together as a couple for fifteen years. Wow. So in honor of that milestone, I scanned some very dusty 35mm film prints from our Outer Banks trip. Chris’s mom rented an awesome house in Corolla and graciously invited me to stay with them for the week, and it was an amazing vacation. We spent lazy days on the beach, shopped in the cute little towns nearby, ate and drank our way through the week, and spent quality time with Chris’s family. The weather was so gorgeous with the exception of one short and sudden downpour while Chris and I were walking on beach – we still remember running home through the massive sheets of rain. Despite the many islands and beaches we’ve traveled to since then, the Outer Banks still remains one of my favorite places and this trip holds a special place in my heart.
