Our Beach Bungalow

Comments Off on Our Beach Bungalow

It’s now FIVE YEARS since we bought our little slice of paradise, The Beach House. We are still pinching ourselves and still happy as clams fixing it up. Spending the weekends being industrious, and lazy, in equal parts. Ahhh, the beach life!

latitude-pillow-palm-shadowsOne of my favorite things, the latitude/longitude pillow found on Etsy at LatteHome
