by the sea

if you follow me on instagram, you know i enjoyed a beach trip with my girl gang. patrick is a sweetie and he encourages me do this trip once a year. 

this year we traveled to the seaside/seagrove, florida area. oh, how i've missed the gulf coast! there's nothing sweeter, i think. my getaway was exactly what i needed. i also needed all the incredible food we prepared and ate together. you need to make these and this immediately. and maybe these for dessert, but measuring is important. ahem. ;) i'll carry this trip with me forever. bustling in the kitchen together, floating carefree in the ocean, exploring cute shops, mad libs, talking, crying and so much laughter. i'm grateful for this precious time with my people.

  1. Wow! Looks like so much fun. I am sure you had a super time. I am jealous! :)

  2. I realized I must follow y'all on IG, because for a few days my IG feed blew up with #8bythesea. And it was beautiful. <3 LOVE that you got to go!!!!

  3. I love your girl gang! And I adore that quote by Jane Austen. That's so me (sometimes to a fault). I could use some prayer in that area.
