Soon, I’ll be here….
…looking at this…
…enjoying some of these…
…eating and wearing some of these…
…and watching some of these..
Oh summer vacay, hurry up.
My parents started taking me to Destin, FL when I was 18 months old. Butterball Josh baby joined the family soon after and Destin became an every summer, family tradition since then. Mom and Dad say Destin memories are some of their favorite memories of our family. Me too!
When I moved to Nashville and out on my own, there were a couple of years were I managed to go twice a year. There were also times when I had $12 in my bank account and now I’m remembering why…
But at the very least, I MUST, simply must, get to Destin (or some beach) once a year. Minimum. I’m starting to have DTs because I haven’t been since last April. Thank the heavens I’ll soon remedy this and I.can’t.wait.
It feels like my hood – and for the past two years I have been teaching Rogers about all the favorite haunts, fave places to watch the sunset, fave places to hang out with the locals, etc. This year I’ve already scoped out one new “local dive” that I’d never heard of and can’t wait to try. And am going to take Rogers to an old favorite (Bayou Bills) for dinner that he hasn’t been to yet.
It can’t get here soon enough.
XOXO beach bums,
