Storm Watching

Happy Friday, loves! And welcome to the weekend. Well it's just about time for vacation for me.

Unfortunately our plans have gotten a little derailed because of the hurricane that's supposed to hit this weekend. Instead of heading out to the beach house, we're going to stay in the city until the storm passes. It'll be too dangerous to be on a barrier island during the storm.

But the good thing is that I am off all next week. Hopefully there isn't too much damage from the storm and we can head on out to Fire Island on Monday. Finger's crossed we still have power and there isn't flooding!

Hope you all enjoy the weekend and to those of you on the east coast of the US facing the storm, be safe!

xoxo

OMG I know, huh? We are bringing Jordan today and his school is right on the ocean. Poor kid. Nothing like dropping him and a suitcase off in the middle of a hurricane. Stay safe and I will keep my pinkies crossed that you and J. have great weather next week to finish out the summer in style!! xo

be safe - I know that must be a let down. I'm supposed to head to the beach next Friday and haven't been watching the storms at all but from what I hear {from my parents} sounds like we'll miss it. Thank goodness :)

We rented a house directly on the beach and I could really use a break!

I am so sorry you are unable to go to the beach like you planned. I saw some of your tweets and I hope you are staying safe. I hope it doesn't get so bad that you have to evacuate. Praying for everyone on the east coast. Sending much love to you!
