Hello to you!
I hope your Labor Day weekend was relaxing, fun, and full of memories with friends and family! I spent my weekend on the beautiful beach of Destin, FL for my best friend’s bachelorette party, and am having some serious withdrawals already! If you follow me on Instagram, so sorry for the photo overload, I promise today we’ll get back to the usual postings! I am hoping to print a few of my photos so I wanted to have them in my account for my favorite Instagram printing company, Printsagram.
The entire trip was a blast and included plenty of much needed girl time. I love my husband to death, and he’s my absolute best friend in the entire world, but girlfriends needs some GIRL time every now and then! Can I get an amen?
We stayed right on the main drag in Destin in a spacious, nicely updated condo big enough for all seven of us girls to have a bed! The condo was right on the beach, and had a nice pool as well that we took full advantage of. I know the Bride was thrilled to have all of us together under one roof for a few days, and I could not be more thankful for these memories. Two of these girls I’ve been friends with since freshman year of high school, and the others I met during my time at Lipscomb and have shared so many laughs and moments with them in the past! There’s just something about girlfriends that brightens your soul and makes your heart happy.
My trip started bright and early from the Nashville airport, where I flew straight to Panama City, then one of the girls picked me up at the airport and drove us over to Destin. The flight was super easy, and we were on the beach by lunch time! We spent the majority of the day on Saturday laying out, then went to dinner at AJ’s, followed by the bride’s lingerie shower back at the condo. Sunday was chill as well, and included laying out, dinner at Dewey Destin’s, putt putt, and a late night trip to a “local” favorite hot spot. The weather was absolutely gorgeous the whole weekend, and late in the afternoon it almost felt like early fall sitting out on the breezy beach! I’m pretty sure I should have just been born in Florida – I need at least one dose of the beach a year to function properly.
I’ll spare you all of the details from the trip, but wanted to share some of my favorite photos from the weekend, and will be sharing all of our decorating details and matching accessories in a second post! So stay tuned! And for my runner friends, you best believe I squeezed in a beach run, as well as some beach yoga! I even got a few friends in on the action! Or the laughs. Mainly just the laughs.
And finally a sneak peek of the photos I actually took on my camera. Can’t wait to share our party decor!
Oh! I signed up for my “halfway” half marathon in October! So there’s that! I’m running the same race I ran last year as my mid-marathon training race, so hopefully it shouldn’t be too bad!
When’s the last time you spent quality time with good friends? Do you make it a point to run while on vacay? What did you do for labor day weekend?
