Memorial Day Weekend


Memorial Day Weekend

We’re off to Malibu for the weekend to enjoy a little beach air and surf. This is the third year in a row that we’ve rented this adorable beach cottage on Airbnb and I’m so excited to drop my bags, run down the steps, and put my feet in the sand for three whole days. I can hardly believe this long weekend is finally here: It’s going to be JUNE next week, and then I’ll have a 6th grade graduate and ZERO kids in elementary school. It’s all a little hard to believe.

I feel like this is our last slow time together, and I’m planning on doing lots of nothing and loving it. Here’s what I’ll be packing for my trip… and in this sweet weekender bag that I got from Lo & Sons. When I saw it on Hannah Garvin’s Instagram, I begged them to send me one to try, and holds a TON. The bottom compartment is perfect for shoes or hair dryers (I shoved some charging cables in there too), and the main compartment has a smaller pocket to keep valuables from getting lost.
