a much needed getaway.





Scarf: Thifted, Sweater, Shirt, & Jeans: F21, Shoes: Trouve via Nordstrom Rack

It has been a looooong couple of weeks.
Every time I cross something off on my list of events, another one pops up. 
One of my very best friends got married on Saturday so the three days leading up to it were packed full with showers, parties, dinners, and rehearsals. 
With all that is coming up these next few months, I was feeling the need for a mini vacay. Our Cabo trip in June just seems too far away!
On Sunday night Ian told me to book a room at the coast for Monday night (last night). I got all shaky and like "wait, what?!" because I am not usually comfortable with such spontaneous decisions. 

That's why I like him.

(well, one of the reasons.)

We ran home after work and packed up our duffles--off to the beach we went.
We stayed at The Ocean Lodge in Canon Beach and it was absolutely gorgeous! 
The getaway was exactly what we needed.

Except, now that we're home I'm getting all crazy again. I tried to run it off, but I probably need to eat something.

  16. oh yes girl, the growing list and cross-offs that just don't seem to give it a dint. i wish you much success in carving away at it and that your BIG trip will speed up to the forefront!

    but....this fab get-away sure does make things brighter. aren't you the cutest ever in those photos. love it all. ♥

    pea ess: sure hope the blogger conundrum didn't affect you too bad, i've been trying to simmer down since things went haywire and have used up all the alloted amounts of "goosefraba" for like a week! xo
