The power of suggestion.



I'm under it.  Here's the thing.  I have had 2 blog "friends" post about the SAME BEACH vacay in the last few days.  I mean, they weren't ON the same trip, but both took (what appear to be) amazing pictures from the same BEACH.  A beach I've never heard of in a state where I've never been.  I decided I needed to go there before I even googled (which LBH, I google all things I don't know including parenting advice) to find is in Oregan.

It was a beach AND there are long sleeves involved.  That is like the best of both worlds.  And their trips were with family and friends and kids.  I mean, who doesn't like to see a little one in some beach gear or a button up and a sweater and some boat choose?

So I mean, I guess I'm not saying I want to be on THEIR trip (though I love an invite--call me xoxo.)  I think it's that they look like they're having SO much fun.  They are with people they love.  Laughing.  Having some drinks (in my imaginations), hanging out with friends kids.  It's TRADITION.  And this is all in my head.  I have no idea in reality.  Here is the reality--I love the beach.  I love long sleeves.  I love jackets.  I love trips with friends.  I want to go on a trip with some friends.  I love children.  Love.

I need to go to this place.  Stat.
