palm trees & 82 degrees: a love letter to summer.
my favorite part of living in florida is that even when you have to go back to real life, it kind of still feels like you're on vacation...because, florida. ☀️
we ❤the ocean 🌊 this trip has made me want to take jack exploring all over. me and you forever, little bub ❤
there's no beach like home 🌊
we were the biggest fans of vacation ❤
if you were wondering what my love language is, it's this (and the giant plate of nachos I am about to eat).
I hope I'm always as happy to see the ocean as little bub is. ❤
florida, I love you.
the two best friends there ever were.
obsessed with him and also fried okra.
I see you, summer.
give me allllll the summer dresses & pink lipstick & sunshine & saturdays. ☀️
when you're trying really hard to be a mermaid, but florida is trying really hard to have winter.
back to the land of palm trees & 80 degrees. also back to needing approximately 97 cups of coffee because, monday. ☕️
when your girl is getting married, you hop a plane and go look at pretty dresses ✈️
we need to talk about his side-eye. he is the absolute saltiest...I wonder who he gets that from 🤔
a rare sighting of pizza in her natural habitat.
I think my calling in life is to sit under palm trees and look at the water and work on my tan. I'm like, suuuuper good at it.
sadness is easy because it's surrender. I say, make time to dance with one hand waving free. -claire colburn, my favorite fictional character ever from the best movie there has ever ever been. (Elizabethtown, if I needed to clarify for you)
^what 99.7% of pictures I try to take with jack end up looking like. but this picture sums up so much of what life is right now: blurry and messy and we're usually laughing and all hands on deck and it takes a freaking village and I couldn't love it more. ❤
felicia (I had to look back through instagram to remember what I named her last summer) is back from her winter vacation in the attic, so I think it's safe to say it's officially summer ☀️
me: omg, love you so much, so obsessed with you, etc, etc. jack: mhmm yeah sure okay but where's this ice cream I was promised?
summer is here to stay and jack is pretty happy about it.
this is my new cooler and I am 100% obsessed with it. also it fits approximately 87 lacroixs, so you could say it's a winner.
cheers to 25! ps: only the best friends act as stand in husbands/dads when the real one has to work. thanks for spending my birthday with me, @sunderwood21. one of the best things 24 brought me was you ❤
every time I set foot in the kate spade store, I feel like I'm one step closer to my goal of being a mermaid. exhibit A ⬆️
I mean....Florida forever ☀️
brunch is my love language. 🥞🥓🥂
I feel like every single day this week has been a monday, so I'm reeeeeal happy to see friday show her pretty little face today ☀️
I spend approximately 90 percent of my time trying to figure out a way to go spend the day by the water. (I spend the other 10 thinking about chick-fil-a)
always planning a vacation, always trying to sneak my dog everywhere with me. ☀️🏝🦊
so (so so so) obsessed with him. and also with this dress.
the gang's all here 🏝🍩🍹☀️
we found a little fake beach this weekend, and a fake beach is better than no beach, right? ☀️
the prettiest sky and my favorite wedding date I've ever had.
he thinks target is as exciting as disney world and I'm probably just never going to correct him. because, in a way...isn't it the happiest place on earth? 😂
I mean 😍😍😍 I feel like the logical next step in my obsession is to have a flamingo mural painted on the side of my house, so keep an eye out for that.
sunshine & a happy baby ☀️
florida does it better. 🏝☀️ counting down to summer vacations, but also loving this 75 degree weather situation we've got going on right now. happy spring!
florida is back to being the sunshine state and the windows are back to being down and I couldn't be happier about it ☀️☀️☀️
coffee on coffee on coffee today. because it's NOT SUPPOSED TO BE THIS COLD IN FL, MARCH. ☀️
equal parts fro-yo, boba, and gummy bears. pure happiness, every time.
rainy days are for adventures with the tiniest little love of my life ❤
favorite view: 🏝🏝🏝so glad to live in a world where there are palm trees ❤
daydreaming and vacation planning today...where's your favorite place you've been on vacation and do I need to go there? 🏝
obsessed with him.
it's march! timehop kindly reminded me that a year ago today, I was hysterically panicking about where we were going to end up, afraid the match was going to send me to some snowy tundra (my love for Florida runs deep, y'all). and today it's 80 degrees and I'm reading a book by the pool. sometimes life sucks, but sometimes it really does work out exactly as you wanted it to. and I'll never stop being thankful for that ☀️☀️☀️
in case you needed it, here's a reminder to do what makes you happy. travel, adventure, sleep in, go to the beach, binge-watch netflix, spend way too much money on your favorite food, be irresponsible and do something for fun. life is so short, live it well ❤
one of my favorite things about living in florida is being so close to universal & city walk. playing tourist for the day is always so much fun, especially when you get this lucky with magical weather ☀️
long live the weekend ☀️
cheers to friday, sunshine, and weeds that look like wildflowers 🌻
finally read The Rosie Project and it was every bit as adorable as everyone said it was. honestly, though, I think any book would be good with this view ☀️
my little firefighter, making mondays brighter since 2016. ❤
current happy place: by the pool with @lacroixwater 🍹hope you enjoy your friday as much as I'm enjoying mine ☀️
finally getting around to hanging stuff in my house and totally forgot I had these beauties 😍I got this sign at @francescas two years ago and it's still one of my favorite life mottos: work hard and be nice, it's not that difficult.
Florida forever 😍🌴
if anyone was wondering about my great flamingo love affair of summer 2016, do not worry, it's still going (probably too) strong.
who can I petition to make the lighting everywhere as fantastic as the lighting in the @marshalls dressing room? also, was really feeling my outfit and then Chris asked me why I was dressed like a farmer. it's fine.
so far my favorite things about 2017 are grapefruit @lacroixwater and these flamingo straws that I bought for approximately 4 cents & will never drink anything without them ever again. 🍹
I have 6,429 things to do, but I went to the beach instead: a memoir.
