Let's take a trip...

...to the beach of course! In keeping with this week's them of the beach, I thought we'd take a trip together. I imagine that many of you work in an office, like myself, so take a deep breath and let's all pretend we're elsewhere, sans bosses and paperwork (the only paper I'm bringing is a trashy beach read.)
First, make sure to pack lightly please, I have an itty bitty car.
Don't forget to bring an umbrella because there will be no sun damage on our trip.
Everyone needs a polka dotted swimsuit and that special someone to come along. Oh, and if you have special someone (or you just don't want to bring them), there will be plenty single people on the beach. It's all about summer love, right?
We'll bring balloons too, but unlike these girls we'll be careful not to litter or kill any seagulls.
Make sure to spend some time alone because the ocean is a nice reminder that we'll all kind of small. Just don't fall off a cliff please.
The beach is really just a large area to dance. Our beach trip won't be complete without some dancing.
Make sure to take plenty of photographs so we don't forget the little bits of beauty all around.

I hope you enjoyed our little trip, I know I did.
