Ah, summer. There's nothing like it. Long hot days, sweet tea, my red and purple petunias mingling together in the flower box, and our giant maple tree drowsily standing nearby, its green leaves waving hello every now and then.
I'm trying to do this whole blog thing, but I get so caught up in being outside and loving the summer, that I just put it off and the next thing you know, it's almost fall again!
I recently got back from the beach with the fam. It was heaven. Laying on the beach all day and listening to the waves never gets old. I love that my only concern is making sure I have enough sunscreen on and what I am going to eat for lunch--a hotdog or hamburger at the hotel's ocean grill? I also let that week be my eat-anything-you-want-guilt-free week. Krispy Kreme donuts, fried coconut shrimp (one of my faves), Diet Coke (another one of my faves), etc. Come to think of it, I don't actually eat that great at home but that's beside the point. It's so much better at the beach.
Here are a few of my favorite photos from the trip ;)
Me and the hubs (Roger) cheesing' it for a pic
Me and my dad Richard--the most dedicated beach bums you'll ever find
Me and my stepmom Tracey--I'm personally loving our colorful tops in this photo!
