There’s nothing like a good vacation to appreciate summer. I spent last week in the Outer Banks in North Carolina, spending plenty of time on the beach, enjoying a couple of good books, and spending time with Eric and his family.
The weather was pretty gorgeous the entire week, aside from a few flash rainstorms. They made for some gorgeous sunsets, though!
Multiple decks were perfect for catching a few stray firework shows after July 4th!
Having a pool out back was such a godsend because the days were hot – some as high as 100°F! After we baked for long enough, we came back to take a dip.
The beach was gorgeous, and I was able to get some solid reading done on my trip! I reread The Vacationers by Emma Straub, which is an entertaining story about a family going abroad on vacation and all of the crazy dynamics that ensue. I highly recommend it!
Saying goodbye is the hardest part. After a week of sunshine and relaxing, we headed north to the city (and the real world).
Are you taking any trips this summer? Where to?
