spring break

Cal's on Spring Break next week, so we're going to drive up to the beach for a few days.  Having just moved into our house two weeks ago, clearly there's some element of not really wanting to pack up our clothes and toothbrushes again and go on a trip when we're only barely settled in, but we planned this trip early last October.  The house is rented, Joe's parents are driving down from Ohio--we're going.  So...Spring Break!  Woo!

I'm not a beach person in particular (don't like swimming in the ocean, too much sand, the sea air makes my hair into a Chinese Lady 'fro), but look, here's a view of the view off the deck of the house we rented, and where I'm going to sit for the next four days doing absolutely nothing:

And here is a thing I'm going to look at.  We'll call it Nature's Screen Saver:

It's been a very busy few months and a particularly stressful past few weeks, and even though there's so, so much work that needs to be done, it'll be nice to get away for a few days, look at the ocean, and spend a few days with my boys.  Hope you have a good weekend, and have at least a little time to relax and be with people that make you happy.


  1. Oh! What a gorgeous piece of heaven. Takes my breath away.

    You all deserve a little relief. Hope it rejuves your soul! ♥

    Nature's Screen Saver! Made me laugh out loud.

  3. Ahh! Nice weather and relaxation. Just what the doctor(s) ordered. ;)
    Have fun!

  4. What beach are you going to???

    Looks like a lot of fun + very relaxing. It's fun even if you don't swim. (Case in point, the last time Luca and I went to the beach, we spent 50% of our time walking on the beach with the dog, and 50% of our time watching HGTV while snoozing on the couch. It was divine.)

  5. That view screams for patio furniture and an adult beverage!!! Enjoy!!
