Taylor Family Spring Break 2017 Personal | Travel


You may have seen last week that I was a little bit MIA on social media…because I was on the Taylor Family spring break vacay!!! My younger siblings, Nathan and Abby, had the week off of school for spring break, so we planned our first family vacation in YEARS. We took a road trip in a gigantic Expedition all the way to Kiawah Island, South Carolina and it could not have been better. We created so many incredible memories that I will never forget, and I was able to fully unplug from work for the first time in a LONG time. Like, I only opened my laptop ONCE for the entire 7 days…that’s craziness in my life!!

We kickstarted the spring break celebrations with Easter service at Lifepoint Church on Saturday evening (AMAZING – as always) and a family dinner. Then, we hopped out of bed bright and early on Easter Sunday for our 7-hour trek! When we arrived at our hotel, our rooms weren’t quite ready yet…so we all laid out by the pool in our road trip attire (Nike shorts, yoga pants and t-shirts all around) and tested out all of the drink and snack options at the poolside restaurant – haha!! We spent the rest of the trip boogie boarding, soaking up some sun, exploring Charleston (my favorite place on earth!!!) and making memories that I’ll always cherish.

Enjoy some of my favorite BTS iPhone pics from the adventure!! First up, Easter service!
