As I mentioned in a few previous posts, my family and I spent some time at the beach this month. The weather was perfect the entire trip - we were very lucky. I constantly had my Kindle in my hand and read over ten books when I wasn't swimming and hiding from the sunball in the sky. We used three or four bottles of SPF 50 & 80 and happy to report no major sunburns. I can't say I'm happy it's over, but I was glad I missed TS Debby by a good 12 hours.
Side note tip for taking your iphone or kindle to the pool or beach - use the snack size ziploc bags for your phone and a larger size bag for your kindle. You won't have to worry about dripping water onto the screens or the sea spray/sand from the ocean. It worked perfectly for me.
Now that I'm back and trying to get back in the swing of things with the blog, I thought I'd share some of my vacation pics.
Instead of just posting about it, I'd thought I'd add a feature on the blog to highlight anytime I have a fun picture to share with you. <insert drum roll here>
I added Instagram picture feeds!
In the picture below, you will notice I added the "Quaint Cottage" instagram feed on the top right of the blog page. The Quaint Cottage instagram usually just focuses on all things to do with projects or adventures at the hardware store. So, if it wasn't worthy of an entire blog post (because I don't normally just post things just for a single picture), you can find it here.
I also added my personal Instagram feed for anyone who wants to take a peek into my NON-blog world. Again, I usually don't post things on the blog in reference to my own life or family just for the fact I started this blog as one to catalog my DIY projects.
Although my life is one major DIY project all by itself if you ask me.
Now that I've officially announced my return from vacation, I guess I need to get hopping on finishing some of my projects in the half bath and start a new mess in a new room.
I missed y'all!
Is anyone heading out on their vacation soon or just return?
Did you chose to go to the beach or pick something else?
More to come soon. Stay tuned.
