As summer continues, it’s very easy to imagine ourselves packing our bags and saying goodbye to all of the noise of our daily life and going to a quiet place by the sea. Wouldn’t you love to do that? Many of us would, this why this is one of the busiest times of the year to buy a vacation property and if you think about vacation, chances are that Florida will come to your mind, especially if you love gorgeous beach houses and sandy beaches. Living by the sea, I have to say that I am used to seeing quaint shingle beach cottages and casual beach houses, but and an interior designer, I can’t help but love seeing all the stunning, multi-million beach houses for sale in Florida.
This six-bedroom, seven-bathroom dream beach house is located south of Scenic 30A and fronts one of Alys Beach’s gorgeous walking paths.

I’m starting to pack! Meet you guys at the beach! 🙂
How wonderful it is to have you here today, my friends! I’ve missed being here and talking to you all. Did you have a good long weekend? Could you relax?
I took some time to spend with my family and cooking. Remember when I mentioned last week I was looking for recipes that I could make ahead and freeze? I got some ideas from some amazing readers and this got me inspired. In fact, a very sweet reader (Hi, Mary B. 😉 ) sent me a meal plan, telling me how she used to cook and freeze her meal for her family of six. I felt inspired by her words and grateful for her gesture. She probably spent a long time writing everything down, explaining everything and sharing her favorite recipes with me. It truly touched my heart in a very deep way.
I often say this to you guys, but I like to keep reminding you how much I appreciate your friendship. I know that there’s a very special bond between all us together, even if we have never met, I know that you guys are there for me, helping me when I am not 100%, caring about me when I am confused, tired, sad. Thank you for allowing me to be how I truly am, with an open heart and speaking from my soul.
May you have a Blessed week, filled with happiness and health.
