FINALLY! We’re leaving for vacation. With me starting a new job earlier this year and my husband deep into a major work project, we almost missed out on our usual week at the beach…almost. Managing to squeeze one week in before school starts again was a major feat, but we did it! To get us all in the mood I created a the ultimate playlist to kick off a summer beach vacation….here goes!
