Summer Send Off


Morning, sweets! And happy Thursday to you all. 

I'm heading on out to the beach this evening for the last unofficial weekend of the summer.  Can't believe the time has finally come.  It's been such a wonderful and seemingly long summer which I'm really grateful for but I have to admit that I'm pretty sad to see it all come to an end. 

So what's a girl to do?  Send it off in grand fashion, of course :)

Have a wonderful weekend and I'll see you all on Tuesday!

xoxo

You don't know how much I want a beach life like you... and then an awesome citylife on the weekdays. I love that balance. Do you guys have a grand ol end of summer party out there?

That last image is just beautiful. Somehow I do feel a little sad that routine and the end of summer is waiting for us... it is still gorgeously hot here, but September just feels like we're switching seasons.

Have a brilliant time and wonderful weekend!
