On Island Time

I got back to my happy places this weekend y'all, and it was fantastic.

Clear, blue skies.

Sunshine for days.

Warm weather.

A long afternoon on the beach with my toes in the sand and a good book to read. It was absolutely perfect. I may be spending some quality time with the bottle of aloe that I swiped from my parents beach house yesterday, but you know, still a wonderful weekend at the beach.

How do you top mornings like this? Easy. You don't!

I even got to bust out my new baseball hat with the updated monogram on it! It's the little things.

Bigger things? This post is coming to you live from my new MacBook Pro! My trusty, old 2010 MacBook Pro had finally had enough and had to be updated to something newer and a little quicker. Being able to use a speedy laptop again is the greatest thing ever.

Anybody else in disbelief that it's already May?! Where has 2017 gone?

Stay tuned around here. May has some big changes coming and I can't wait to officially celebrate them. There's even three beach trips coming up this month. #summeroffun anyone? I'm ready to get this summer full of beach days, weekends at the lake, and road trips started.

& there might be a few more evenings like this one:

Evenings strolling around the botanical gardens with some delicious wine in hand? Sign me up.

Happy Monday, y'all!


  1. There is no better way to spend a weekend than at the beach! Sounds so perfect!

  2. I seriously can't believe it's May already. Where has this year gone? And so jealous of your beach time. There's nothing better than toes in the water, ass in the sand! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  3. A beach weekend already - that's perfect!!

  4. I got a monogrammed hat at the end of summer last year, so I'm so excited to break it out on our next beach day! Which can't come soon enough. Your pictures are definitely tempting.

  5. What a fabulous weekend! I just adore the beach.

  6. Happy May!! What a beautiful spot on this humid weekend. Can't wait to see what's in store for you this month, and I'm super envious of your new Macbook! My 2010 and I are still spending lots of quality time together ;)
