Weekend Beach Trip

When a friend sends an email out that she has a condo we can stay in for free in Orange Beach, AL, you say yes.

That's how I ended up taking one of the shortest beach trips I've ever been on, but it was totally worth it!

A friend and I drove down on Friday and got there in time to spend a little bit of time on the beach, go to dinner, and walk on the beach at night with our other friends.

We slept in on Saturday and then spent the whole day on the beach before going out to dinner.

The rest of the evening was spent hanging out at the Florabama, a cool little bar right on the beach on the Florida/Alabama state line.

Sunday we made the drive back to Nashville.  It was definitely a short trip, but it was so much fun to hang out on the beach and spend time with some of my favorite people.  I came home realizing that I am so blessed to have so many amazing people in my life, and I'm incredibly thankful that I have the kind of friends that you can take a quick trip like this with and come home with a ton of stories and memories after a lot of talking and laughing together on the beach!
