Hello friends! Hope your week as been as swell as mine. N + I have been in the OBX all week for a wedding & a little R+R. Our week has been more than amazing & much needed, but sadly, our travels will be coming to an end (insert sad face here). In honor of our recent travels, you can find me over on Julie Leah's blog sharing a little bit about my recent travel & packing essentials for a week at the beach.

Summer time is all about relaxation & this past week has been nothing but that. We spent time soaking in the sun on the beach, catching up on some summer reading, sippin' on some mich ultras with limes & watching many sunrises + sunsets.The week was nothing short of wonderful & I am so sad that it is coming to an end.

But, much to my dismay August 15th is National Relaxation Day (YIPPEE!). In celebration of this, all Tommy Bahama Island Locations (this is a store and restaurant combined): will dish out free soft serve ice cream to all!
