I apologize for my absence over the past few weeks. I can't say that I have been doing anything spectacular...just trying to get back to normal after a fabulous week in Destin Florida for summer vacation!! I lived in Destin for about 3 years and loved living and working there. How could I not? I worked about 2 blocks from the beach! We spent a week laying on the beach, eating great seafood, relaxing and enjoying all the sandy white beaches had to offer us. I was extremely sad to leave our quite, peaceful routine we had developed, but I did return feeling rejuvenated and inspired.

While we were there, we did lots of fabulous shopping!! One of my favorite towns in the area is called Seaside. (The movie "The Truman Show" was filmed there.) Seaside has unique and fun shopping and some really amazingly decorated homes. Pizitz is a cozy and quaint store that showcases beach style at its finest. I could literally move in and live in the store. I love absolutely everything about it!! It made me want to come home and re-do my entire house and cover it with sand and shells!

We also visited an antique and home furnishings store called Lilypads. Lilypads offers some great finds to help transform you home into a beach masterpiece. I really enjoyed the unique finds!
I did plenty more shopping, but I will save that for my next post. Just writing about Destin makes me miss it so much, and I also realize, I am loosing my tan. Oh, I think I need to go back soon!!!
