To the Coast

Travel

My family and I are at the beach for the long weekend! Because of Matt’s internship, we won’t be able to do a beach week this summer, so we came early.

We were the last to arrive, but my family saved “the engagement suite” for Matt and I!

Just kidding – all the rooms are really nice. We are in a condo at Carolina beach and I’m very impressed. They have everything you could ever need here. I might not leave. I must say, it’s been a bit harder to relax knowing I have so much to do at work. The last two weeks are crammed packed with final meetings.

But the salt air and beer are helping me forgot my to-do list just for now.

And having people cook for you is amazing! We’re taking turns and Matt and I are in charge of the fish tacos on Saturday.

We’re still celebrating! And I think we have a date!

Yesterday was spent on the beach just playing games, reading, and relaxing.

And hot tubbing…

    You and your fiancee look beautiful in that first shot – such an effortless picture! How did you like the Cupcake wine? I’ve seen it in stores a few times and have been curious but I haven’t picked any up yet.
