The Ordinary Moments ’16 #26 | Summer Evenings At The Beach

I’m not entirely sure why but summer always seems to bring out my spontaneous side, I suppose I just feel so much more relaxed about things when the sun is shining. I’m all about the last minute picnics, impromptu family BBQs and spur of the moment trips to the beach with friends at the moment and let me tell you, I am loving every second. Making memories with your nearest and dearest is what summer is all about, right?

The weather was so beautiful on Friday evening we decided to make the most of it and ignore the fact Bella’s bedtime was nearing and instead we jumped in the car and headed to the beach for dinner and a paddle in the sea with a couple of friends. I’ve said it before but spontaneous Friday night trips to the beach really are one of my favourite things about Summer, they make me heart so so happy.

Bella adores the beach too so she always has the most wonderful time and my gosh is it a challenge trying to tear her away when it’s time to leave. Watching her running along the sand, giggling away without a care in the world, is quite honestly the best sight. I could watch her These moments are what it’s all about and it’s one of those things I wish I could bottle up and keep forever. Life seems simpler at the beach somehow and there really is nowhere else I’d rather spend a sunny friday evening.

A few of my favourite photos from our evening, the sky was absolutely gorgeous and I lost count of the amount of times I said ‘It’s such a beautiful evening, just LOOK at that pretty pink sky’ 😉
