Life Lately: The Beach

If you happened to miss my constant posting throughout social media (in which case consider yourself lucky, because I was quite obnoxious) then you might not know that I spent my last week on vacation at the lovely beaches in Ocean City, New Jersey. My family is lucky enough to spend a week or two there each summer at my grandparent's beach house, and the town is truly like a second home to me.

We ended up being lucky enough to get nearly perfect weather on the trip, so we spent a ton of time playing games and (in my case) reading on the beach. It was so relaxing and wonderful, and I'm getting nostalgic talking about it because I just want to go back. My one and only regret is that I really didn't use my camera too much, mostly because I didn't want to take the chance of getting sand in it. I managed to snap quite a few shots with my iPhone, but I truly regret that I didn't take some video on my camera for a possible vlog (or, more regrettably, just to have the memories on film). 

Just for reference (in case you're curious) pictured above, from left to right, is my brother Ryan, my brother Dylan's girlfriend Brianna, my brother Dylan, me, my boyfriend Jake (the weirdo wearing sneakers at the beach), my brother Logan and Ryan's friend Alex. The main takeaway from the picture is that I am the shortest person alive. And that I have a lot of brothers.

There were so many highlights to the trip, from a day trip to Atlantic City to the many wonderful games of Kan Jam we played on the beach. I was so happy to spend the week with my family, and I'm already looking forward to going back next year.



  1. Lovely photos, makes me want to visit a beach! Just looks so calming and the sunsets look amazing!

    1. Thank you so much! And I adore the beach, I seriously just feel so relaxed and at home whenever I'm there. It's had me seriously considering a move to a state with warmer weather!

  2. Gorgeous sunset pics!! I actually find my iPhone is better at those than my camera, I can play around with the focus and get the light juuust right :) xx

    1. Thanks so much! And I agree, it's really amazing how great of a camera iPhone's have now! I've taken some of my favorite pictures using my phone :)

  3. You do have a lot of brothers! How does it feel being the only girl? D:
    Also, when you did take pictures, you took beautiful ones! Really, the beach looks wonderful. I am glad to hear you were able to enjoy your time away.
