My Beach is Better is all about celebrating and being proud of what you have. When I was creating this blog in 2013, as a surprise for Mike (what boyfriend doesn't like an online narrative of their relationship written by their girlfriend?), I picked the name from a Jay-Z lyric.

"I bought sand to the beach cause my beach is better. You can keep ya beach cause that beach whatever."

Poetic, huh? But really, since then we've been really proud of this thing we've built. What started out as a long distance relationship is now a marriage with two boys under two and a minivan in the suburbs of Atlanta. Now the blog documents our life as a family of four, making messes and living out loud.
