Mini Beach Getaway
This weekend, the temperatures were in the SINGLE DIGITS. Unacceptable. Do you know how difficult it is to read other people's blogs who live in warm places like California, Australia, etc? VERY difficult. It makes me long for warm weather and sunshine and summer dresses. Instead, I'm stuck with -4 degrees wind chill, gloomy days, layers upon layers, and warm boots. However, (here comes the positivity) there HAS been some sunshine, so I gotta give props to the big ol' sun up there. She's trying her best, even if the temperatures won't agree with her.
Thinking positively over here though... I know it IS January in Pittsburgh, so it's supposed to be cold and I need to deal with that. I just always get that warm weather itch towards the end of January, after all the holidays are over and Christmas decorations come down. So naturally, I start dreaming about a warm beach vacation that will sweep me away from the cold and plant me in the sand, with a tasty drink and warm sunny rays. A couple years ago, Brett and I started taking a mini Spring beach trip down South each year to escape the cold wintery North. We went to Hilton Head Island (pictured above) for the first time in Spring 2008 and completely fell in love with the place. We've been there twice now and are planning another trip there in April this year! It's such a nice little escape. Even though we are only gone for a few days, it really is such a sweet little vacation to get away from everything and just relax. I.CAN'T.WAIT.
Where is your favorite place to go to escape from the weather, your job, your daily routine, etc?
PS - Thinking about starting to post some vlogs on my blog... how do you guys feel about that?
