Sunny days

Things are beginning to heat up here in sunny Florida. Its nice to finally feel the suns hot rays, normally I don't enjoy standing out in the sun but these last cold harsh days have finally taken a toll on me! On my way to the gym I heard an old familiar sound that brightened my day completely... SEAGULLS!!!


I absolutely love the sound those birds make, they bring back so many fun memories of going to the beach with my family. For one week every spring/summer we would get ready for our 2 hour drive to the beach, Fort fisher to be exact, my sister and I would seriously start preparing a month or two in advance for our "big" vacation. A couple days prior we would begin our yearly spring cleaning to get everyone in the mood. We would also start making salads, sandwiches, and cutting plenty of watermelon for the trip. Once we were in the car and on the road my dad would blast his favorite beach boys CD and that would be the beginning of our  awesome trip!

Now that I only live 30 minutes away I can't wait to have my own little vacation to the beach while blasting some good ole beach boys hits ;)



  1. We've had a pretty mild winter here in Ct, hardly any snow... but some is on its way for tomorrow! Although not hot, I could feel the increasing warmth of the sun's rays yesterday and was so happy I wanted to cry! The days are getting longer, and spring marches ever closer... :)

  2. I totally agree - the sound of seagulls and the ocean are amazing! They bring back memories of my family's yearly camping trips. We'd go with my aunt, uncle and cousins to camp for a week at our favorite campground, and in the evenings we'd go to the beach...playing in the waves, collecting rocks, digging holes and building sandcastles...

    It sounds like you've had some fabulous times at the beach, too! And I'm sure every time you hear the Beach Boys you think of your trips. ;) Thanks for sharing the memories, Gracie! <3

  3. Eeee- stop if Gracie!! You're making me want summer so badly! D: Haha you're so lucky that you live 30 minutes away... *Jealous* Hope you have another fun trip soon! ♥ Send some sun to meee ♥
