Dreaming of the Coast

Hello everyone!

It has been a long, gloomy and soggy week here.  There have been a few good days of sunshine, but it is never without the clouds or threat of rain.  Even if we do get sunny blue skies during the day, the night time brings storms so we wake to wet grass and humidity.  Luckily, though, the temps have cooled down a bit.  

So, I am dreaming of our upcoming vacation to the coast of Florida.  


I only hope the rain doesn't continue to follow us.



I am looking forward to eating seafood, lounging by the pool and walking on the beach.

We're even taking this little guy with us!


(See what he does to my pillows?  None of my pillows are safe from him.)

He has gone with us to Florida before, but never to a beach that allows dogs.  So, this will be his first trip to the beach and playing in the ocean.  We are very excited to be able to take him with us.



So we are using this week to prepare for our trip.  


I will try not to bore you with too many vacation photos when we return.  LOL!

Hope you all are having a great weekend so far.

Thanks for stopping by!

~ Kelly ~

Enjoy your beach vacation:) It has been a wet summer for us as well, wet and humid! Loving your pretty vignettes especially the bucket of white hydrangeas and your collection of gorgeous grain sack. Have a lovely evening! Hugs, Poppy

All you girls who keep talking about rain are lucky. :) Actually we are finally getting a little here today for the first time in probably 6 weeks. We needed it desperately.

I know you'll have a wonderful time at the beach. :)

Hi Kelly,
Little Max will love going to the ocean. What a lucky dog he is. Everytime I see Max I think of my granddog Charlie. He looks just like him. I love Boston's they are so sweet and smart. Enjoy getting ready for your trip. Woooo hooooo vacation.

As a beach bum myself, I know the anticipation is always exciting and the beach even better. You will have a blast.

Kelly, I'm so ready for the beach, but we won't go for about another month. I hope the rain doesn't follow you. Take lots of photos, so I can pretend I'm there. :)

Have a great time at the beach. We took our Springer with us once and it was fun. She didn't like the water....never did, but had fun running on the beach.

We want to hear all about it! I LOVE vacation photos!
It's cool and rainy here in Texas which is SO unusual for July! WE are REJOICING!!!!
I used to take my kids to the beach every August. Now they are all grown up. The 'tide has turned' so to speak and now Summer is taking ME to the beach - in September. They have rented a HUGE beach house and invited lots of friends and family! I hope you enjoy every single minute of vacation preparation as well as the actual vacation and then relive it all over again through your blog posts!
