Newport Beach has always been one of my favorite places to visit on the weekends. Since moving, we are only about 45 minutes away so I now have even more reason to escape there on my weekends. I know I am not the only one who feels completely and utterly relaxed and at ease whenever at the beach. This past weekend, it hit the upper 90s for the first time this year, so it was the perfect excuse to getaway to the beach for a few hours. Being met with the salty sea air and warm sand for the first time this year was something I had been longing for, for longer than I realized.

A day at the beach was also the perfect excuse to bring out my film camera to test out for the first time. I haven’t developed anything yet, but here’s hoping they all turned out pretty decent! I was also super excited to use my “new” rattan bag I found just the day prior at a local thrift store. It was only $5, but it’s so well made and sturdy, truly one of my favorite finds.
