Hello from Seaside, Florida! I’m currently on a mini trip visiting my family and celebrating my upcoming birthday… I’ll be home pretty soon and back to regular posting, but until then I wanted to share a few photos:
My “birthday cake”, which was a huge slice of strawberry cake from Modica Market. It was seriously the best piece of cake I’ve ever had in my life! I had to have Chris help me finish it because it was so rich. I’m guessing it was made in store because it was super fresh and amazing.
Enjoying the cake from our gorgeous view… wow! Can you imagine living here?! We can even see the ocean from our little place – it is kinda like a little fort in the sky. I’ll share photos when we get back! The little can I’m holding is Sofia wine – one of my favorites which comes in mini soda-like cans with bendy straws. Kinda goofy but I thought it would be fun to pair with my celebratory cake.
Chris built a pyramid at the beach, and then I made a mini sphinx to hang out with it… It was still there this morning when we went out there! I was surprised. I had never really made anything in the sand as an adult, and it turned out to be very relaxing and zen-like. I might try it again before we leave.
So far my only touristy purchase (other than food and drinks) has been a Futurama blind box at Sundog Books… and I got BENDER! He is my favorite character! I was ridiculously excited in the store when I opened it. He even has a mini storage compartment and props. Too awesome! This is me geeking out over this before we even left the store. Hahaha…
Close up of the mini bending bot. ❤ Unfortunately I didn’t get many photos with my family at the beginning of the trip – we were so busy enjoying each other’s company it slipped our minds. I guess we will have to do it on our next visit! It was so nice to see my grandmother – she is 82 this year and I don’t know how many more opportunities I will get to visit with her over the next few years. So I’m very grateful to be out here!
Anyhow – I’ll have more photos and maybe a video when we get back. Also, the bicycle post should be coming Wednesday evening if there is enough time! Hope you all are doing well!
