The perfect little coastal set up…. with the most perfect view….
Just add a bottle of wine & I’ll probably move in forever. We did our preliminary packing this weekend and everything fits like a glove in my little 45L backpack. I decided to swap out My 2nd pair of jeans & button up for another sweater dress & tights. The weather is looking pretty nice (high’s in the 60’s!) and I like dresses more than jeans anyway 🙂
