The clock is slowly winding down to 5:00 p.m. today when I will be officially off work for the next week and a half and can head to the beach! Every year, for the past like 12 years my family has traveled to the wonderful Island, Kiawah, off of South Carolina’s coast. I, unfortunately, did not get to go last year for the first time EVER, because I had 1. Just gotten back from New Zealand 2. Was BROKE, so they paid me to watch my dogs and 3. Was supposed to work, but Lifetime didn’t actually get my background check back that week either… (took them 5 weeks total, but that’s a whole ‘nother story). My point is that I am extremely psyched about going back to Kiawah this year! My best friend Kara will be accompanying me, along with my mom, dad, brother & his friend Chris. We are embarking on our 5 1/2 hour car ride at precisely 8 a.m. Saturday morning. Here is just a glimpse of the beauty at Kiawah:
The hotel in the picture is absolutely beautiful–I would love to get married there… overlooking the ocean, but that will never happen because I am not made of $. Anyways, this is just one of the gorgeous places we hang out at Kiawah, the entire island is so pretty, complete with bike trails throughout the entire island, nature, million dollar houses, like 5 golf courses, rec areas, too many pools to count, lots of gators, & plenty of beautiful beach!! It should be a fairly relaxing trip, with hopefully some entertainment as well. A guy I met a few years back who is from the island will be in town, so he knows all the locals and great places to go, so hopefully we will have some fun nights out as well! 🙂 This is definitely what I need right now, perfect mid-summer break and hopefully I will come back refreshed ready to pump out the last 5 weeks of my internship, and survive the last 2 weeks before my 21st birthday!
