Every single time I travel I am always looking for fun keepsakes to take back home with me. Whether it’s little knick knacks or home decor pieces, I am always on the lookout for creative ways to show off our travels in our home besides hanging photos or creating photo books. Having these keepsakes always serves as a reminder of the good times my husband and I have had traveling around the world – and now more so because Greyson is traveling with us. Although we have yet to do any big traveling together, we have been able to make it to the most beautiful beaches around.
Our first trip out of the country was when my husband and I first started dating and we went to the beautiful islands of Turks & Caicos. If you haven’t been, or even heard of it, you need to Google it ASAP and realize just how easy it is to get there and how breathtaking the islands are. We loved it so much we went back a couple years later for our honeymoon.
While vacationing in Turks the first time, I decided to sneak (even though it’s completely legal) some sand and shells home as a keepsake of our trip (just use an empty water bottle to scoop the sand and shells then pack it away in your bag!). Before I knew it, I was doing this every time we went on a beach vacation. Now I have bags of sand from all over – which is wonderful, but what do I do with it now that we’re back home?
