First Beach Day of the Year!

Ahhhh, so excited about this post! Today was our first beach day of the year and it was amazing. For those of you who are new to my page, we live 45 minutes from Orange Beach/Gulf Shores – where Hangout Fest is! I’ve never been to Hangout Fest though, lol. We LOVE being able to hop in the car and drive to the beach for the day – it’s so nice. Today was weirdly cold – we woke up and it was like 52 outside so we were like do we still go?? I’m so glad we did. It was one of those days where the sun would come out for a few minutes and then hide again behind a cloud – I love those days because sometimes when it’s all sun with no break you’re like dying in the heat! Also, if you watched my IG stories you saw the big blue tarp we bring to the beach to sit on! You can find it here. It is AMAZE and has little stakes that go in the sand so it doesn’t blow away! It’s also huge so great for the whole fam/friend crew.

I loveeee this man. He is so fun and always wanting to go out and do stuff – even when sometimes I’m more like let’s stay home! He’s always bringing out the adventurer in me and I love that about him.
I’m really hoping we take advantage of the beach more this summer – I’ve lived here my whole life and it’s easy to take it for granted but ever since they closed the beach due to COVID, I’ve realized I don’t want to take it for granted ever again! You’ll be seeing LOTS more beach posts this summer, lol!
Do you have something nearby your hometown that makes you love about where you live?! Let me know in a comment on this post!
