The Great Escape


Happy Friday darlings! I'm so excited the weekend is finally here. I am once again headed on out to Fire Island for the weekend. I have to say I feel so fortunate. I'm having the best summer of my life. Working hard but really taking the time to escape and enjoy life on the long weekends. I can't remember a summer that I've been to the beach so much. I'm pretty giddy about it all!

This weekend we're renting the beach house again. It'll be the 3rd weekend that we've rented it already and we really love it. I'll share some photos with you all next week. I've finally been able to load them all up and I'm sure I'll take some more this weekend :)

Oh and the cherry on top is that this weekend kicks off the birthday celebration week, my birthday is next Tuesday. As you can probably tell I like to drag the celebrations out so we'll be celebrating on Sunday with my sister's and brother when they all take the ferry on over to FI for some festivities. I can't wait! This will be the first time in years that I have all my siblings together on one day to celebrate. Thanks so much to my honey for planning such a fabulous weekend :) xoxo

Hope you're all had a fabulous week and that you all have a great weekend! Any fun plans on tap?

Okay so: happy happy upcoming birthday (I love birthdays--my own and other people's--and I feel like they should be rightfully celebrated!), and have a wonderful time at the beach! I haven't been to the beach nearly enough this summer . . . if I had it my way, I'd be there every day. xo.
