Weekend Wrapup: Girls Beach Trip

Last week I went with a good friend on a mini vacation to the beach! It’s so good getting away sometimes, ya know?

Here’s a little Instagram recap of the trip:
20140623-095709-35829115.jpg20140623-095709-35829504.jpg We went to Hilton Head Island for a few days with a very simple and straightforward plan: go the beach, lay on the beach. Period. No sight seeing, no clubbing, no running around like a chicken with its head cut off trying to fit in a ton of things. Just beach time, pure and simple.

And that’s what was done. Laying in the sun, we read books, magazines and our kindles (have you read #girlboss? If, not – do it now). We sipped on simple gin+sparkling water+fruit drinks and ate wraps filled with roasted pork and kale+quinoa salad I had made beforehand. We floated in the ocean, meditating as we hung out with the waves. And repeat.

Simple, no?

It was a little slice of heaven (despite the crowds and the sun-burnt skin). And we never wanted to leave.

Are you planning a vacation like this? Where the to do list is short and the relaxing is long?

I hope so. 🙂
