Florida in Photos

I just arrived back in Charlotte after a nice long weekend visit with my family in Florida. While it was a bit too chilly for much beach and outdoor time, it was a really nice and relaxing visit. Here are the highlights in photos!

Beautiful Gulf of Mexico. Never get tired of this sugar white sand.

Dad and the pups.

Seaside beach.

Grayton beach. Love these empty off-season beaches.

Shopping outing with my mom. The BCBG outlet was having an outrageous sale. I got four dresses for $31 each. Some were originally $200+. #winning

I loved this dress so much that I got it in two colors, black and bright pink. Sadly, I’ve searched high and low and it’s not available online but you can check out the online sales on the BCBG Factory Store website. I love their dresses and they’ve been a go-to for me since college.

Full moon.

1,26amavidacoffee

Coffee shop in Seaside. Never enough coffee. 🙂

1.26sunsetcolors

Beautiful sunset colors with dramatic clouds.

1.26stormybeach

Gray beach day when I left today. It’s so crazy to me how much the beach can change from day-to-day. So many moods. (I guess I can relate…haha)

1.26airportgolden

A golden retriever therapy dog in the Charlotte airport today wearing a “pet me” jacket. You better believe I stopped and took advantage! Can every airport have therapy dogs for stressed out travelers?

Time to get back in the swing of things. Training clients tonight and bright and early tomorrow morning. That 4:55 a.m. alarm is going to come early after five days of sleeping until 7 or 8!

What’s the craziest service you’ve seen provided in an airport? 

Do you like rainy beach days or bright and sunny beach days?

Reminder: one more day to enter my ALDI Feel Good Food Giveaway! Giveaway closes on Wednesday at midnight.

    Not really a service, but in the Singapore airport (my fav), there is a huge twisty slide that takes you from one floor to another. It always make me smile when I see people riding it down.

      That’s awesome! Maybe one day I’ll get there.

    I’ve been to a lot of beaches and I’m convinced that the Gulf beaches are the best. The softest sand and warmest water (when in season :)).

      The beach is one of the best parts about traveling to see my parents! It’s still so pretty even when it’s not beach weather.

    A therapy dog at the airport? Brilliant!
    I’ve found some amazing deals at the BCBG outlet too. They have great stuff.

    Oh man, I’m totally craving a beach trip now! These pics are gorgeous. Instead I’m headed to snowy Utah. ha! 🙂

    I loooove overcast dreary days at the beach!

    I saw those dogs the last time I flew through CLT. Love it!

      I’ve never seen the dogs there before! But totally support the idea. Ha! I hope you have a great trip!

    all the way sunny for me ! but if i lived at the beach i might not mine some rainy days to cool things off. i remember the first time i saw manicure services at the airport years ago and i thought that was odd. now its the norm. so it seems like anything goes these days.

      I know! There’s so much more to do now in an airport if you’re stuck there for a while.
