Splendid Summer

PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket


Good morning, lovelies! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I spent my extended holiday weekend at the beach and had the most amazing time. Amazing weather, friends and family, good food, drinks and music. I couldn't have asked for a better weekend. And the best part is that we ended up renting a beach house for the rest of the summer so I have a lot more fun to look forward to!

Hope you all had an amazing weekend and enjoy the day!
xoxo

Sandy at Ooh La Frou Frou said...

There's just something so wonderful about being at the beach, isn't there? I spent the day there yesterday, and the smell of the water and coconut suntan lotion in the air was heavenly after a long winter and kind of lousy spring. We finished our beach day by heading to a country club that has a beautiful terrace overlooking the golf course for dinner and I felt very summer with my two glasses of fresh lemonade! Here's to summer!

EclecChic said...

Alexa said...

Glad you got to enjoy the beautiful weather on the beach! Oh i heart fire island and their calm nights and relaxing beaches, even the deer that sometimes frighten me as I walk through streets. Lunch/Dinner drinks next week?

I am incredibly jealous that you're going to be spending the summer at the beach...le sigh. I will live vicariously through these photos, I suppose :)

That is totally fantastic news about the beach house, you are going to have a blast!!! When you get to have it for an extended period like that, you get a whole new level of relaxation (c: Summer at the beach sounds incredible!!! Just like these pictures...I can almost smell the salty sea air...(c:

elle marie said...

I love, love the beach, grew up on riding waves...but I'm sad though, I don't think I'll be heading to the beach here in Japan this summer... I'm still freaked about the Tsunami... (if I can see my car within sight I might) ...so I can high tail it if I have to.

Vanisha @ Vanisha's Life In...Fiji said...

Was renting that house something you did on a whim? It's really wonderful! I can't wait to hear more about it and to see pictures of course :) And congratulations on winning my giveaway! <3

Its been raining here in California. Not very California-like at all! I can't wait for the sun and the beach too...
Hope you're doing well :)
