Growing up in Europe exposed me to month-long vacations, and now that I’m in my late 20s, I dearly miss those 4-6 week-long trips to the beach. Paid vacations mind you, and not for me, because I was like 8, but for my parents. It really gave us a chance to get out of town, leave behind the hustle and bustle of the capital city, and just relax by the beach. I always enjoy flipping through the pictures and have fond memories of making new friends and attempting to swim in the Adriatic Sea.
Well, this past weekend we didn’t make it to that part of the world, but just the same, we thoroughly enjoyed the Atlantic Ocean for a couple of days and am so thankful that the beach is within driving distance. There’s a level of peace and ease that I reach whenever I smell the salty water and my toes are tucked in the sand. Such was my reality this past weekend and it was much needed. Also took some time to be thankful for those who are out there supporting our freedom.
Definitely tried to pack Anthro pieces for the trip because hey, they make me happy!
This is what I wore on Sunday as we explored Wilmington (and devoured ice cream).

Yesterday was spent at the beach with nothing but sun. I seriously wish I lived by the beach on a regular basis because I truly get a kick out of beach culture- everyone on bikes in their bikinis, barefoot, tan, licking on ice cream, wavy hair, seafood….need I say more? The much needed color I was missing got addressed and I came back with somewhat of a tan, mixed in with random spots of red from areas the sunblock didn’t cover! I’ll reserve the bikini shots for my private album because after all, my little blog isn’t THAT private!
