We Swim, We Dine, We Shop for Things

As the warm weather begins to fade, Mr. PEMS and I attempt one final summer hurrah by visiting Destin Florida where we honeymooned so long ago.  In spite of the fact that fall is my favorite of the four seasons, I can't help but dig my feet in the warm sand every year to try and stave off the cold that is inevitably coming.  Ironically Mr. PEMS and I fell in love here as well, when my angel mother (a single mom with three teenagers) accepted her friends invitation to vacation with her family in Florida.  The rest is history and our mothers' are still best friends too  ;)

I'm looking forward to swimming everyday, the wonderful food and endless shopping....I'll keep you guys posted if I find anything amazing.  Have a great weekend everybody!


  1. I am so jealous of you, it was freezing in the NE this morning. It's terrific that your mom and Mr. PEMS' mom are best awkward Thanksgiving dinners for you.

  2. Super chic, Callandra! Love the swim suit and the hat! For a second there I thought you were using a picture from a movie clip. What really cracked me up was the book you were reading. Um, why are you reading that book? :-) Have a great weekend.

  3. Elle, I know the winter is coming, it's so sad!...and we are very fortunate that our mom's are so close.

    Vicky, Thank you...can't do enough to avoid those wrinkles right?!...And I was surprised by how much information this book has to offer, I highly recommend!

  4. callandra -- you look super chic in your bathing suit. so classy!! i love the hat and the gold bangles -- what a nice touch.

    That's such a sweet story about you and your husband. Kudos to your mom for raising three kids plus matchmaking inadvertently too.
