A day away...

"If I could get away for the day, I would go...."
to the beach! 

Today I am going to have to agree with Miss Lauren over at The Little Things We Do. 

If I could get away for a day, I would definitely go to the beach...and if you couldn't tell by the picture, I would go totally and completely alone.
Its not that I don't enjoy people and socialization, I do! The thing is, I rarely get any time completely by myself. We already went to the beach this summer, but let's be honest--vacation changes once you have kids. There is no more reclining in a chair getting lost in a book for hours while you bake tan. Its more like running back and forth from the beach to the condo to get something you forgot or change someone's diaper.  If you are lucky enough to get to actually be on the beach, then you aren't sitting in a chair, more than likely you are sitting in the sand digging or out in the ocean splashing. 
Don't get me wrong, I loved our beach vacation this year! But I do look forward to one day sitting on a pristine beach in quite and solitude. 



  1. The beach is definitely a fun destination but I never pick it due to how pale I am. It never works out in my favor :/

    I love your blog. It's super cute and relaxing color scheme!
