I really do apologize for the crazy number of beach posts, haha. But what can I say? This is life right now, and at least the blog is in real time, right?!
Translation: I couldn’t get my act together to create extra posts before our big trip back home, so Mitch takes a few quick pics of Emma and me every day here in Ocean City, and ta-da! Blog is somehow still afloat. 😝
I kind of have no news, guys. Vacation has been very good to our family. We spend our days down by the water and our nights cooking dinner or visiting the boardwalk. My family is down right now, which has been amazing. I’ve loved watching my parents with Emma; you should see my dad with her. I’ve teared up on a couple of occasions.
The topic of discussion right now is my parents’ 60th birthdays next year. We’re thinking about taking a big family trip somewhere and I’m pumped. We did this with Mitch’s family in Ireland a few years back and it was the most memorable (and meaningful) trip I’ve ever taken, so the prospect of doing something similar with the Sheehan side has me so excited. We’re still up in the air about locations, but have you ever organized a big family trip? I’d love to hear about it! We’re open to all ideas.
In terms of what Emma and I are wearing in these snaps: surprise, surprise. It’s Lilly Pulitzer. ;) I think I mentioned this before, but I’m essentially a walking advertisement for the brand while I’m down here, and it’s honestly always been this way. Heck, my bed here is clad in all LP. 🙈 To me, Lilly screams beach life and happiness, and it’s so easy. All I’m wearing here is my dress–no shoes, no bag, no accessories–and yet I feel totally put together. With Lilly’s prints, you just don’t need that much else! (And the Flamenco Beach print?! Definitely my favorite, next to Lobstah Roll, Beach and Bae and Sea Salt and Sun. See all Famenco Beach clothing above.)
And I’ve totally embraced the whole mommy-and-me outfit thing, haha. Here’s our matching lobster look, and we have another coordinating outfit post coming in the next few days. ;) Can’t help myself.
Over and out! Tune back in tomorrow for a really fun post. <3
