Photo Diary: Ocean Shores, WA

This is what happens when you ask your boyfriend to take your outfit pictures... the view was just too amazing to not post, odds are you will be memorized by the ocean and the skies kissing rather than my awkward poses! :) I hope all you dolls had a wonderful and memorable Memorial Day Weekend. 

Half of this post will be my outfit of the day, and the other half is my photo diary of my weekend. It was short and sweet, but any excuse to leave the city, turn off the phone and just enjoy some quality time with my boyfriend I will take.

It was both our first time in Ocean Shores, WA and I must admit, it is a quaint and cute little town. Reminds me of a nice place to go when I retire, close to the beach and very quiet.

Originally this trip was a surprise, with a horse ride involved... but I spilt the beans and it was lucky I did, poor boy is allergic to horses!! Instead, we rode mopeds on the beach, explore the town, walked the beach and bar hopped. We even threw in a quick game of mini golf, of which I completely kicked butt (he will probably tell you otherwise) but you know how vacations are, always goes by too quick. Back to reality I go.

Everlasting Love

You know what I love? Couples that have been together for what seems like forever and are still madly in love with each other. I am so glad those couples still exist.

Today, I am spending my night babysitting my co workers kids while her and her husband enjoy some time to themselves. They have been married for over 11 years and the way they look at one another, the way they talk to not only each other but their kids, it only gives me hope that love and forever do go hand in hand. They are a real life fairy tale. Not to mention they raised awesome kids! All they wanted to do tonight was build a fort, watch Frozen and Tangled and call it a night, I mean how much easier can it get?

Enough rambling on my part, today's outfit was just so perfect for this topic I just couldn't help it. Something about pink and flowers just makes me think of love and romance.

Happy Happy Joy Joy

"A heart at peace gives life to the body but envy rocks the bones." - Proverbs 14:30

Nothing beats sitting on my front porch with my best friend, watching the kids play and listening to the sound of laughter around me. Not to mention it's nearly 7:30pm and it is 70 degrees outside... oh Washington you make my heart skip a beat. Moments like this is when I wish life had a pause button just so I can savor the feeling. Too bad we missed the ice cream man...

Where flowers bloom, so does Hope.

"Get over your hill and see what you find there, with grace in your heart and flowers in your hair." Did I mention I love Pinterest? So many creative minds in one place, it is nothing short of fascinating. Are you on pinterest?

Living with two kids and their wonderful mom for the past year has shown me a different type of life. The happiness in their eyes, and the sincerity in their laughs is so amazing. A child's innocence is the most inspiring trait we will ever come across, and I feel like a lot of us forget that. We get burden with every day issues and lose our spirit but being surrounded by them has reminded me to take life easy, enjoy more laughs, cherish your favorite people and never let the stress take over your happiness. Each day they remind me to change and cherish the things I can and accept the things I can't. If we blink too fast life will just pass us by.
