spring break twenty fifteen

IMG_20150323_170654

bring back spring break and bring it back now!

i must admit, i tried really hard to take Lily on an adventure during spring break

to los angeles to be exact

a place i have been meaning to return to for eight years now

but, with expensive flights and a family wedding happening in north carolina, the odds were against me

so, to north carolina we went where we obviously had a great time

and, once back in miami, we had Drea and Marlowe stay with us for a few days

a staycation for us and a little getaway for them

Drea and i had discussed going to the west coast of florida however we opted to just have day adventures here in miami and that is just what us four girls did

and we had a great time doing so

slow mornings, beach, picnic at the enchanted forest, a visit to a local urban farm…

it was our second spring break together and it was wonderful!

i’m looking forward to our summer break already…

happy april friends!
