My Happy Place

I've talked a few times in the past about how much I love being near the water. Now that the weather is warmer, that's where you'll find me all the time.

{Shirt: J.Crew Factory (old) (similar), Skirt: Target (old), Shoes: Tory Burch, Belt: Target, Necklace: BaubleBar (old), Bracelets: David Yurman, BaubleBar, t+j Designs}

The water, the beach... it's so relaxing and serene. Looking at the open ocean, with the warm sun on my skin, puts a smile to my face and all my stresses just leave my body. Maybe that's why I'm always happier in the summer.

Now it's time to bring back some Friday Love-It Notes!

1. Sitting out on the deck. The weather here has been gorgeous lately. I finally got my husband to bring the deck furniture back out and I've been enjoying sitting on my adirondack chairs and soaking up the sun. I did however, get attacked by a bunch of hornets, but don't worry. Apparently waving your arms around and running in circles really confuses them and none of them caught up to me. 

2. Ice cream season. I don't think this needs further explanation, right everyone? My favorite flavor of the moment: coffee oreo. YUM. What's yours?

3. Some "me" time. I'm treating myself to a much needed morning at the spa with a massage tomorrow. It's been too long since my last massage and I'm in dire need of one. I can't wait.

Do you have any fun plans? I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Love your skirt!

I love ice cream season! My favourite are the Magnum ice cream bars. They remind me of my summer in Turkey. :)

I can't wait to be back near water. I live near a gross lake, so I have to wait for vacation time in July.

I am dreaming of warm, sunny days - you're making me so jealous! We've had a couple days in the high 60s but then we dive back down to cold again. Very soon I'll be joining you in the happy dance for Summer. Now if only I had an ocean to go with it...

You are a master print mixer.

I, too, am excited for the summer. It's really always been summer here. But next week I'll actually have time to go to the beach!

Ricademus said...

That is a happy place--and a bright and happy outfit. Very summery! I used to really enjoy going fishing, just to relax near the water. I didn't want to catch anything (if I did, I usually let it go), it was just nice being there.

There are so many good flavors of ice cream. At the moment I'm thinking pistashio, but that could change in a moment. I'm glad your bee story had a happy ending. I only remember my painful (and embarrassing) bee encounters, but I know I must have had plenty of escapes too.

My me time this weekend involves a haircut, baseball and trying to fix my lawnmower.

Have fun at the spa!

Monique McCray-Alexander said...

Summer makes me happy too! I would like to go to the beach or pool this weekend and every weekend thereafter. :-) Polka dots are back!. Love it paired with the gingham top.
