Summer Vacation Scenes

Late last week the hubs and I headed east for a little end-of-summer rest and relaxation––my first full week off in over 15 months! We kicked off our week-long vacation celebrating a friend’s very special (40th!) birthday at his family’s charming summer home on Fishers Island.

Yes to ocean-side champagne, freshly shucked oysters, slightly mismatched seersucker suits, stand up paddle, and stunning sunsets with friends.

After a boozy, fun-filled weekend, I retreated to my parent’s quiet Rhode Island home where I’ve been averaging 1-2 hours on the beach each day and 10+ hours of sleep each night. I may not take vacations all that often but when I do, I take them pretty seriously.

The hubs and I are excited to have few more days here before heading back to San Francisco on Sunday. Once we settle back into our apartment I’m hoping to bust out the grill for a little Labor Day barbecue before we both head back to work on Tuesday!

Did you take a summer vacay this year? What’s on your Labor Day weekend agenda?

    Gorgeous photos! That sounds like a wonderful trip. I went to Cabo in June with my husband for our first time, and it was lovely. We definitely want to go back. And this weekend, I’m also heading east to visit my family in Florida for Labor Day. I expect to spend two days by the pool doing absolutely nothing. I hope you also enjoy relaxing! :)
