For the past four years, some of my girlfriends and I have had the amazing luxury of (ridiculously cheap) access to a phenomenal beach house in St. Augustine. It is large enough to grant each of us “space”, even if there are 8 or 10 of us (this year 4 of us) and comfortably decorated enough to not feel lost in the enormity of the house. Generally, we go in November and do some “Christmas shopping” but this year we opted for a post-holiday season retreat (November was booked..) and THAT was a seriously good call!! And so, enjoy a (mostly) photo essay of the weekend!
Friday evening. Subs for dinner @ 8:30 p.m. and a chick flick.
Saturday morning. Peaceful. Quiet. Sunshiney.
A walk on the beach. And surfers, too! With snow in the Northeast this morning, THIS is the reason “snowbirds” got it goin’ on!!
I did NOT make my bed!!
Antiquing pre-lunch waiting for our name to be called at Osteen’s. (cash only, baby! super yum, super reasonable and worth the wait!…..about an hour!)
A one-man band.
Cupcakes @ Luli’s! Yes. I ate the WHOLE thing. and I didn’t take a picture. SO. FLIPPIN’. DELICIOUS!
Boots with the fur…the whole club was looking at her….(thanks, Flo-Rida…that’s all the lyrics I know, though, so you’ll have to YouTube it yourself, I’m not sure it’s appropriate to link here….)
Sunday morning after Mass. One more walk on the beach…
