Spring Break

For spring break this year my parents (surprisingly) let me go on a road trip with a couple of friends to Gulf Shores, Alabama! Taking about 18 hours to drive down, we pretty much sang Disney songs the and ate fast food. I never knew how many Waffle Houses existed now....Once in Alabama, it was rainy for the first two days of the trip (outlet mall, anyone?), but after that it was just the right tanning weather. My friends and I didn't do much except for wake up, watch the sunrise, eat, go to the beach, eat, and repeat for 8 days. Some of my favorite highlights were paddle boarding, para sailing, and doing lots and lots of beach reading! It was relaxing and lovely. With seven people, we rented a condo right on the beach which I had never done before, and it was so different from staying in a hotel! It was so bittersweet to go leave though since it was such a great home to have for a week. Never have I ever had a more relaxing vacation.

Ah, I'll never forget the view.
The necessities, of course.

All smiles.
The guest book in the condo was too adorable to not leave a little note in for future guests.

Now that Spring Break has ended, don't fret because SUMMER is next! Eeeeeek!

See you soon,

Spring Playlist

Tomorrow's the day when I leave for a road trip to Alabama with a couple of friends. I could not be more excited - especially for the 15 hour drive. I thought it would be a good time to share some of my favorite songs that I will be jamming out to on the road as car rides might be one of my favorite things in the world.  I always like how it is the perfect time to listen to music and just think. With 15 hours, I will have lots of time to reflect, imagine, and contemplate anything that's going on inside my head. I've really been into a huge variety of artists lately, some that have been around for awhile, and others I have just discovered. 

The Lighthouse and the Whaler - Venice
Sea Wolf - Middle Distance Runner 
Colbie Caillat - Realize
Savoir Adore - Dreamers
The Kooks - Naive
Angus and Julia Stone - Draw Your Swords
The Vaccines - Wetsuit
The New Amsterdams - Turn Out the Light 
Ben Rector - Wildfire

Click here to listen to all of the songs!

I will be gone for the next week because I'll be on vacation, but I will be taking many pictures for future posts! Hope you all have (or had) a great Spring Break. Also let me know what you're listening to at the moment - I love finding new music!

See you soon,
