As I hit publish on this post it will only be 3 days and 21 hours until my Memorial Day beach weekend begins! My car will be filled to the brim with 5 beach-goers, 1 pup, and lots of luggage. But by Friday evening I’ll be sitting pretty on the beach, margarita in hand.
A group of 10 college friends will be staying in a gorgeous beach house for the long weekend on Folly Beach, South Carolina – just outside of Charleston. Forget Mexico and the Caribbean. Stick me on a good southern beach and I’m as happy as a clam! Can’t wait to be back in the land of the southern drawl and shrimp & grits.
Besides an afternoon doing the tourist-thing in Charleston and doing a kayak tour early one morning, our only plan is to relax on the sand.
But as the OCD planner that I am, I’m over-thinking things per usual. That means planning out my packing way too early, shopping for beach towels in January, and checking in on Charleston’s weekend weather forecast every few hours.
Since my summer has a few other beach trips planned, I decided to invest in a few new supplies. I’ll be tanning on the beach in style thanks to a hot pink polka-dotted beach towel, a straw panama hat, and new sandals.
Can’t wait to soak up the sun with my favorite people!
