Beach Life

As much as it kills me to say this, I can feel Summer coming to an end.  Not right away, but I do feel it slowly slipping through my fingers.  The days are getting shorter.  I noticed this weekend that by 7:30 in the evening it was already getting dark and I cried a little inside. 

Luckily, I was able to finally squeeze in a teeny tiny bit of beach time this weekend.  Snuck that summer bucket list item in right under the buzzer.

My family is vacationing at the beach this week and I was able to get away and meet them down there just for the weekend!  It was a quick trip there and back for the night but I still managed to dip my feet in the ocean, sunbathe by the pool, catch up with my sister and now 11-week-old nephew (!) and the rest of my extended family.  Andddddd, my incredible dad worked on my car while I was there and was able to get out most of the scratches the anonymous YMCA offender left me with!  He's the best.  #familytimeisthebesttime

Luckily, I'll be extending my summer a bit when I leave for CA in a couple weeks, but it was still lovely to get a beach weekend in with my family.  It's a yearly tradition and I wasn't sure I'd be able to make it this year.

And now I'll leave you with bunch of pictures so you can forget entirely about the fact that today is Sept 1st.  NOPE.  Still summer over here.  You're welcome :)

Anddddddddd my new Tinder profile pic.  I jest.  NEVER EVER AGAIN TINDER.  EVER.


Now in order to fully deny that Fall is on the way you're going to have to ignore pumpkin everything right now, along with the Halloween candy and costumes that are somehow already in stores.  Don't let the advertising maniacs that rule the US economy take your summer away from you prematurely!  We still have a full 21 days.  LONG LIVE SUMMER!

Have a great Tuesday everyone.


Have you made it to a beach this summer?

Please tell me you're not ushering in Fall already?!

  1. I live at the beach so yes, I've been here all summer. I'm looking forward to September when we get the beach all to ourselves. It's the best month to live at the shore!

    1. Yes, me too. The shorter days are making me sad already. I can't even fathom cold weather and wearing more clothes right now. I want to live in my flip flops forever!

  5. Sigh. I'm not ready. However, I'm conflicted because I DO love Fall, but I felt like I blinked & summer was over. I pay a lot of money and endure a lot of stress to commute to the city from LI every day, and the one HUGE benefit in summer is having the beach in my backyard. It makes me sad to realize that in a month that will not longer be a perk and I'll soon be rocking boots and leather jackets. Again, I love that stuff but... I need more time! And more tan :)

    1. Oh what I wouldn't give to LIVE at the beach! You lucky lucky girl! Fall is ok but to me it signifies the end of summer and it ushers in winter so it pretty much has 2 strikes against it in my book. I unfortunately can't see much of it's own beauty because of those offenses! HA
