In vs. Out

Happy Fourth of July weekend! Nothing says "happy birthday America" like an extra day off of work. Currently blogging with the ocean breeze coming in through the doors and a view of the pool. Oh the life. 


Four day work weeks (I don't know what I'm going to do next week when I have to work a whole week!)

Family vacations (my family is the best/weirdest--my dad is currently cha-chaing around the condo and will be so proud he's making the blog again)

My birthday is next weekend!


The time it takes to physically travel to the beach (traffic is the worst)

Summer is almost over. June flew by and now I'll be 24 before you know it and then it'll be Christmas. BAM.

Have a great and safe Fourth of July!


  1. Thanks for sharing! Have a great weekend!

  2. Four day work weeks are the absolute bomb and I agree, going back to a five day work week is actually tragic. As a native islander/beach bum I completely agree about the time it takes to get OFF the beach. I've always said that I one day will own a house on the beach so I just have to walk up the "bakcyard" into the house. One day!

  3. Wow. Blogging with the ocean breeze coming in through the doors and a view of the pool. I'm jealous! Happy birthday in advance

  4. Happy almost birthday! Sounds like you're living the dream. I'm a total advocate of the 4 day work week. Canada Day fell on a Wednesday this that was disruptive haha. But I'm all for having Monday or Friday off!

  7. I had a 3 day work week for my internship, it was pure craziness!

    Have a great family vacation!

  8. The older you get, the more time flies. It'll be 2017 before you know it.

  9. Happy Almost Birthday! I can't believe we are already half-way through summer. Time flies.

  10. I don't want to think about summer almost being over!!!


  11. Yes! I hate the drive to the beach, but I love the beach so much!

  12. Oh the life of a freelancer, I love being able to choose my hours, blogging takes a larger chunk of my life really but it is worth it...

  13. I don't want summer to fly by): but I know it will! I hope you have a wonderful Fourth of July weekend!

  14. Happy fourth of July! Only 4 days until I spend a full week at the beach and I cannot wait! Have a wondeful weekend.

  15. I don't want summer to fly by, the beach drive by me is short like 20 minutes, if I go to the bay beach it's only 5 minutes. I wish I could get a job as a freelancer it would be awesome.

  16. Love this. YES to four day work weeks!
