Early summer

The first days back home are bittersweet - you feel home and you feel away from home at the same time.They've been busy, they've been fun, they've been crazy, they've been scream-inspiring and fantastic - they've been everything the beginning of summer should feel like + the homesick and vacation lusting that comes with the beginning of fall. Early summer this year feels like the incline on a roller coaster before the first plunge - you are anticipating and exciting but you know it's going to go by soooo soooo fast, and if it's the first time you ride, there are sure to be surprises ! Stay tuned !

summer shorts

Before summer even started this year, we welcomed the season with a trip back home and our first ever trip to the West Coast. We'd been looking forward to it for months and months and now that we're back home and already looking forward to other fun summer adventures planned, I still can't believe this trip is over.

First stop: Naples for some Memorial Day weekend fun in the sun

Then I definitely left my heart in California (I know that's not exactly how the song goes) At the airport, I had the same feeling I used to have when I was a kid leaving Disney - the "Noooooooo - I don't want to gooooooo hommmeeeeeeee" feeling. Our three days in LA were simply incredible - from the gorgeous and absolutely perfect hotel we chose par hasard to the incredible views from almost everywhere in the city to the fun of exploring Hollywood and Beverly Hills and pretending just for a moment that I was a movie star too ;)

our hotel, The Embassy, in Santa Monica

Back in Florida we took advantage of the remarkably rainless early June weather to go to the beach absolutely every day. I miss everything about this trip - my family, the sun, the California and the fact to be on vacation far, far away from reality.

and till next time we get out of town (yes i am already counting down), cheers to summer and cheers to summer dreams !
