Something Inspiring - The Beach

the topic this week is the beach! and i love the beach especially with my FAMILY! and what better a place to be inspired than the beach surrounded by the people you love?

the beach is a special place that i enjoy often through out the year and it just so happens to be the place where our family gets together and has the best of times! we are lucky enough to say our family has a beach house in the heart of laguna, california. this tiny peace of heaven belongs to dan's 98 year old grandma bam. the whole family has been coming to stay for weeks at a time during the summer for many years.

dan's grandparents have the last name 'ryan' (our son is named after them) and the beach house has a sign out front reading 'ryan's roost'. i think the fact that this house has so much family history within its walls is inspiring! plus, it is so much fun to visit. we spend lazy days at the beach and lazy nights laughing, eating and enjoying each other on the patio. it is a beautiful sight.

'the beach house' as i like to call it or 'ryan's roost' as it sometimes is referred to has been the venue for many important events such as birthdays, parties, parties, parties and more parties. it is so inspiring to see the family come together and celebrate each other. the happiness i feel makes me think of endless creative possibilities, plus, with all the parties going on there needs to be dessert! (made by yours truly!)

also! we are planning our son's 1st birthday party to be held at the beach house, which will be very sweet for me because my family and dan's family will be together celebrating! perfection!

here are some photos taken at the inspiring beach house!

 We typically sleep in the ‘bunk bed’ room and I love this photo of Dan sleeping and Ryan just waking up.
