Why I’ll Miss Summer Days – Family Vacation

farewell, summer, beach, getaway, travelWe’re less than 24 hours away from autumn! I can’t wait to jump into a new season but before I can fall deep into fall, I need to take a few moments to reminisce on the sweet joys of summer. I’ll admit summer is certainly not my favorite season and I’d ideally prefer it be sunny and 74 degrees year round. I guess I’ll have to move to California to experience this type of weather, sike! My heart is in Texas.

Summer days in Houston are filled with humid days and lots of frizzy hair lol. The best place to be in the middle of July is relaxing in a pool or cool body of water. This summer, I made sure to hang out poolside at least once a month and it was so refreshing. If you missed my tips on planning the perfect getaway or staycation check it out here.

farewell, summer, beach, getaway, travelMy family and I took a vacation last month to Florida and soaked up the sun, slurped up some amazing oysters and seafood, and spent time with family. I got to see my great-grandmother, who’s in her 90’s and gets around better than folks half her age. No shade, I was just amazed at her strength and surprised she had no complaints about life.

We hit Destin for a day to enjoy the beach since we’ve only been once. It was perfect! My nephews got a chance to enjoy the water just before a rain shower interrupted our family time.

    Great time, great memories! It was lots of fun and a joy to share some of our many memories on the beach with the boys. Amare is talking about the beach!
