Life’s A Beach

We spend the Weekend down in Seattle again this past weekend and had to leave fairly early yesterday so before we did, we headed down to Edmonds Beach since it was Sunny and went to grab a coffee from the little Waterfront Coffee shop next to the Ferry terminal. I cannot think of a better way to spend a Sunday Morning in September with loved ones.

Today I drove past a quote on a Church message Board that read “Spend Your Life with those who make you Happy, Not those who you have to impress”. That Church knows what’s up, life should be lived in the little, simple moments with those who you love and who love you for you, those you don’t feel like you constantly have to impress, for me that’s by the ocean, early morning in cozy clothes with a hot drink.

What does it look like for you? Let me know in the comments
Happy Monday.

    I absolutely love your outfit and that is so true trying to impress people is positively exhausting . I love the beach as well and my morning coffee . We have no season change here in Barbados just rainy or sunny . The beach is like my second home 🙂

    Hope you have a great week

    Love the dress. Looks great on you.But yes impressing wrong can be tiresome. But yes love to be in beach. Sounds like Barbados Beach is fun. It will be worth it.

    I love the ocean, too, but prefer a cold drink to a hot one! Probably because I live by the Gulf Coast where it’s usually warm.

    That sounds like a perfect fall Sunday morning. I love your scarf.

    I love these photos – they are somewhat moody but in a good way! I think its the beach colors and your outfit that makes that combo. Seattle is such a fun city, I need to go back!

    “Spend Your Life with those who make you Happy, Not those who you have to impress” is a great quote and words to live by. Thankfully I don’t have many people in my life that I feel like I have to impress. Love you scarf and bag by the way and your photos have given me a different view of what I though Seattle was like.

    I love your outfit inspiration. The ankle boots you are wearing is what really caught my fancy. They are beautiful! I would like to have a chance to do as you did, taking an early morning stroll along the beach. That would be so invigorating!

    There is a little church in the country that I pass on my way to the garden, and they always have the best sayings on their little billboard. After I turned 40, I started cutting things out of my life that didn’t serve me. At the same time, I only add in those that will bring joy to my days. Couldn’t love this thought more. x

    A fall morning at the beach sounds lovely. I live in Seattle but I haven’t been to the Edmonds beach before, it looks beautiful so I need to check it out!

    These photos are beautiful – I had no idea Seattle had beaches like this! It’s so nice to get out and about exploring new (and old) areas, I love the fresh air at the coast! x
