Friday Favorites

Happy Friday! This week has been yet another busy one, so I have tried to take advantage of every free minute possible. Apologies for the lack of posts this week, my lens that I use for blogging unexpectedly broke the other day. I always try to have a variety of posts each week including graphics and original photography, so this unfortunate mishap really limited the content possibilities this week. Thankfully, Amazon Prime is always there when you need it and my new 50mm lens will be arriving today! I have had my eye on it for a while and it has been recommended by lots of other bloggers, so I am looking forward to using it and improving the quality of photos on Preppy by the Sea! 

One: Beach Days
My schedule for work this week has been extremely busy, so I have not had a ton of free time. However, I have spent all my time off at the beach. The weather this week has been beautiful and the ocean is finally starring to warm up from its previous arctic state. I have also been doing a lot of reading at the beach and am just a few pages away from finishing Me Before You! 

Two: Flowers
Walking around the Cape right now is absolutely breathtaking, all of the flowers are in full bloom and everyone's gardens are perfectly maintained. Hydrangeas are one of my all time favorite flowers (I blame my New England roots) and it has been nice to see the variety of colors popping up all over town! 

Three: Swimming
There is absolutely nothing I love more than swimming in the ocean. I love the refreshing feeling of the cold water after a hot day. I love the salt in my hair, and I love the salt on my skin. In addition to lots of dips in the ocean, Julianna and I were babysitting and got to swim a pool which is always a fun change. The pool was actually salt water which I love so much more than chlorine and think is such a great idea for a beach house! 

Do you have any fun plans for the weekend?
