Spring is my favorite time of the year. Unfortunately it only lasts about three weeks here and then it gets hot and muggy.

We live in San Diego, so Spring is definitely here. This is why I love living here! Inter isn’t all that bad anyway! Spring is my favorite time here because the weather is a perfect 72 most days and the tourist traffic hasn’t arrived yet!

We live in Charleston, so our staycation includes the beach. 🙂 We try to go when we can…. I’m planning a few days before public school gets out since we homeschool. The beach will be less crowded then. 🙂

We just moved from Florida but we will be back to enjoy the beaches this summer! Never as often as we would like but to be fair we lived 10 minutes from the beach for 3 years and barely ever went. It’s fun but I don’t like to go empty handed so if I don’t have money for snacks and drinks then I don’t go. But we will at some point.

We don’t have vacation plans this year due to budget constraints… but we live very close to the ocean so I should plan some day (or even half day!) outings this summer.
