FLORIDA OR BUST.

Over Labor Day weekend, my college best friends and I road-tripped down to Florida for a weekend getaway at the beach. It was much needed after several stressful weeks of life and work. I think we all needed some time away to catch up and sit by the ocean. We had beautiful weather all weekend, took long walks on the beach, had good conversation, invented the best dance moves of all times, and laughed until we couldn't breathe. I need to take more vacations like that. :)
























WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE BEACH?

This looks so wonderful. It made me miss the beach sooo much- I grew up near the beach. I spent a fortnight in Florida (Orlando) when I was 15. I've also recently travelled to America- we roadtripped to North Caroline from Kentucky so we get have some fun at the beach and these pictures made me yearn to be back! I hope you had a great time x

I love this! x100! I think you're so beautiful! I love that you had a girlfriend getaway! Everyone should have R&R getaways with friends. Also, my favorite beach is Cambria! It's magical!

Well thanks, friend! :)
Agreed. everyone needs BFF getawayws.
I just looked up Cambria and it is beautiful!!

Meg McIlvaine said...

They are the best!
Weeeeell, it's only 7 hours, but with stops and tons of traffic, it took us about 9 hours to get down there. Still worth it!

Meg McIlvaine said...

Thank you!!
I know...I needed a nice warm weekend before winter gets here. ;) Autumn first, though! And it's my favorite!

Meg McIlvaine said...

You've still got time to take a spontaneous beach trip!

Meg McIlvaine said...

Oh fun!! Where do you live now?
The beach is so great and relaxing. You should definitely make your way back at some point. :)

Samantha@Elah Tree said...

It's my favorite beach in the whole world! The first time we went I felt like I was in a different country!

Chantel -A Harvest of Blessing said...

Yeah, that looks like so much fun! Also, you need to teach me how to do my hair like yours, I fail every time I try to put it up and yours looks amazing.

Amy said...

These pictures are amazing!!! Looks like you girls had so much fun! I'm pretty stinking jealous! :-)

Rebecca Petersen said...

I love Florida beaches! They're so beautiful! We've been to Pensacola, Destin, Santa Rosa, Perdido Key, and Seaside, which is definitely my favorite! Which beach did you go to?

Angela said...

What a great relaxing trip!! I would love to live within driving distance of somewhere so nice! Our beach is ok, but the weather is almost always gloomy and the water is freezing!

Kiki said...

How fun! The colors you captured (and the joy/fun, too!) are beautiful and I'm so jealous of those sunsets, blue waters, and all that lovely sand, too. Great photos!

Kelly Del Valle said...

I like seeing people's FL vacation photos! It reminds me of how much I love living 20 minutes from these beaches...even with the heat, haha. I love the beaches in Pensacola, Clearwater, and the Keys the best!!!

Ech & Will said...

Looks like such a fun trip! I love all your pictures.

Laura M George said...

I live in Chester, NW England. Although.. unlike much of the USA its still very easy to get to the beach x

Meg McIlvaine said...

Oh how fun!! I dream of visiting England. :)
