A Day of Fun in the Sun

Please forgive my relative silence this week, but I've been busy enjoying the company of my youngest brother, truly one of my best friends, who has been here visiting us before he heads back to college for the school year.

His trip comes way too quickly to an end tomorrow, but before he heads home, I'm excited to be taking a day trip to the beach! I often forget just how close I am to some beaches now that we're here in Houston. While they might not be world-famous, for me, a sandy beach is a sandy beach, and I can't wait to feel the the hot sand between my toes, especially since it has been way too many years since I last planted myself on the beach for a day!

With that, I'm off to enjoy my last full day with my brother, and I hope, whatever your weekend holds, your days are full of happy moments with your family and friends too.

I heart the beach so much. What great images! Vintage beach looks are the best. Hope you had a great time, and a lovely weekend! XO!

We took the boys down to the beach for an icecream yesterday, but it wasn't as warm or as glamorous as it looked in these photos! I hope you had a glorious time and are not missing your brother too much. One my brothers is travelling the world with his wife at the moment, so I know how it feels to not see them much :-) x Jayne
