A Walk on the Beach

Tonight was a perfect start to the weekend. Dave & I enjoyed a nice long walk on the beach with Ob & Marley around sunset.



One of the best parts about living in Florida is being about to walk down our dock and stroll on the beach.



I love our house at sunset.


That is not our house. But for a split second did you think, “Oh snap! This chick is ballin’!” haha! We do live close to the beach, but we certainly do not live in a mansion on the beach. The house we live in could fit inside that house 2 or 3 times. I’m thankful for our small house though – less to clean, right? 😉

It was such a picturesque night for an evening walk.





It was chilly, but that didn’t phase Ob & Marley from chasing each other straight into the ocean.



Not too bad for the first day of February.

I hope you’re having a lovely night, friends.


  1. LOL!!!! Super funny! I wish too! Jealous of your beach walk! Looking forward to some in the next week when we are visiting in Florida! I will miss having Abby on the beach though… Dogs have so much fun in the sand and water! Happy Friday.

  3. Beautiful scenery! I would like to go steal that house, too.

  4. Ha, not going to lie… you fooled me girl! I was like dammmnnn this girl is livinn life 🙂 Ha Ha! Enjoy the weekend.

    • Happy weekend to you! 🙂 I’m sure you’re enjoying some sunny weather in beautiful Texas!

    • Fingers crossed, Michelle! Just as long as the house comes with a cleaning lady!

      • Oh, I think that’s a given. Lol!

  5. Man, I wish I were a baller like your neighbor. I think every normal person on this planet does… hahaha! I love the idea of living in a place where you can have a sunset, on the beach, by the ocean and it is still freezing cold out! With DOGS! Yay! Great post!

    • I always think, “I wouldn’t want to clean a house that big” and then I am reminded that when you live in a house of that caliber, you probably don’t do the cleaning. haha

      Thanks for stopping by CnC!

  6. What beautiful photos and I’m so jealous you live close to the beach. I would give anything to walk a few blocks and get to the beach ….

    • Living close to the beach has a lot of perks, but I could do without the humidity! I guess no place is perfect, right? ha

  7. your blog title literally is my life story haha soo spot on!! I love your blog and your dog — so adorable. I just got a new goldendoodle puppy and I can’t even tell you how excited I am that I have a new running partner :] Look forward to reading more of your lovely posts!

    • Thank you, Kylie!

      I can’t wait to see pictures of your goldendoodle – those dogs are so cute!

    • Dave is heading to DC next week for work, Megan! I told him he better pack warm clothes!

  8. I read the sentence twice that said you walked out YOUR dock…I’m thinking what a typo or what a liar! Ha…..I’d be living with you if you lived there. It is awesome to live in Florida. Love the weather. Great pictures!

    • haha, I was hoping you would read that and laugh, mom! No typo – just a joke. 🙂 xoxo

      • I thought a typo on MY dock knew it was a joke on My house! I laughed out loud. The difference in me and you,,I would have rolled with it. Ha Funny! It is fun to dream but if anyone can attain it, it’s you!

  9. Those pictures are stunning! Especialyl you’re almost but not quite house picture : ) I can’t wait to land in Florida on Friday and enjoy the beach and sunshine!
