Summer Inspiration

I’m so sorry for my absence last week. Bryan’s family lost his grandfather. You can read more about it here, but for now, I’m excited to be reminded of the little things in life that are worth cherishing and savoring.

Here is a little bit of summer inspiration, that honestly, has got me salivating. I am desperate for a really hot afternoon on the beach. I need some sun and enough heat to warrant shorts and a tank top. This long cold spring has got me really excited for what’s coming up!

Beach Ready

It may not be quite warm enough for sun bathing, but now’s the time to get your beach gear ready. I wouldn’t love anything more than to have a linen closet shelf full of coordinated beach towels. This minor compulsion has lead my roommate to believe I’m OCD. Say it isn’t so! I just like every part of the house to look pretty–even if it is the linen closet! Is it weird that I’d want a matching beach bag? 

Anyhow…here is an uber luxurious option if you’re into investing major bucks into beach towels. If not, Target has some comparable ones right here


And then, I suppose to go with the beach towels, you’ll need this


And maybe this:
