Friday Favorites and a #BOOKWORM GIVEAWAY!

Hey there FRIYAY!!
This week has been all kinds of crazy, so I am super stoked the weekend is here!! 
I plan to soak up as much vitamin D {and vitamin sea} as possible! 
Before I unplug for the weekend it's time for a little Friday Favorites fun!! 

Friday Favorite GIVEAWAY

ONE || I am still seven different kinds of in love with this suit! For the longest time I wouldn't wear a one piece {to me it was the ultimate sign of over 30}, but this suit is so fun and chic that I honestly feel younger in it! Also, one piece suits are so much easier for frolicking in the ocean with my nieces and nephews; which is the main reason I first decided a one piece was needed, so that my bottoms didn't accidentally get pulled off by little feet... again! 

TWO || Speaking of nieces and nephews... my dad has one of my nieces this weekend, while her mama is on a cruise (#jealous), and I am so excited to spend time with both of them! We had my littlest niece here a few weekend ago and the time with her was just the best. She lives the furthest away and is the one we get to see the least, so it was just a really sweet time having her here to snuggle!!

THREE || Things are moving along with Crimson House! The floors are almost done being refinished as I type this and we are so excited to see how it will all come together. We are hoping to be able to set a soft opening soon; nothing definite right now, but fingers crossed!! 

FOUR || Y'all!! Have you read Into the Water?! It is soooo good!! I have had the hardest time putting it down. I had never read Girl on the Train, so I didn't know much about Paula Hawkins or her writing style. If you enjoy Ruth Ware's books I really think you will like Paula Hawkins too! I am so close to the end and am really hoping I can still say I love Into the Water after once I am finish. Anyone else hate when a great book has a terrible ending and you are sitting there horrified and wanting the last week of your reading life back?! I really don't see that happening with this one, but you never know... 

Into the Water GIVEAWAY

If you haven't read it yet, I am giving away my copy to one of you!! Share the love, right?! Join below!

Any good reads to recommend?!

Fun in Quincy Washington || #TravelTuesday Travel Blogger Link Up

It had been a whirlwind around here recently! I am finally getting settled back into the swing of things and have time to start catching up on all of our travels. It was a wonderful two final months of road-life and I can't wait to share everywhere we have been. One of those great spots was Quincy, Washington! 

Y'all did you know Washington had such a fabulous wine region?! I had no idea! We spent our time in Quincy checking out the local wineries and bike riding past tons of cherry trees. Check out the beauty...

Our stay at Crescent Bar RV resort was perfect! Not only does the park include tons of amenities (pool, biking trails, adults only hot tub...), but it is located near a handful of fabulous wineries. While we didn't have a chance to try them all we were able to go to Jones of Washington and Beaumont Cellars.  Both were wonderful and worth a try! 

If you are a fellow wine-lover you definitely need to pay a visit to Quincy, Washington! 
Have you ever had Washington wine?! 

Where have you been lately?! 
Link up for this month's Travel Tuesday Link Up! 
Let's explore together!! 
#TravelTuesday Travel Blogger Link Up
~On the 2nd Tuesday of every month I will be sharing a new travel post and would love to see where you have been exploring!
~Any linked posts will be pinned under Travel Tuesday on my Pinterest account. 
~Please leave a little love on the post directly before yours and then anywhere else you like! That way we can all grow this community together :) 
~Not many other rules, as I am not a huge fan of those sorts of things! Just add any travel related link and I encourage you to peek around and see where everyone else has been. 
~Feel free to grab the image from the sidebar and add it to your post so others know where to link up.
~I will also be featuring my favorite post from the month before and sharing across social media. This month's feature is from Away She Went and her trip to Sedona, AZ. We didn't make it to Sedona while we were on the road and hope to get to visit soon. Until then, we will live vicariously though Sam's trip!

Life Lately || Goodbye Full-Time RV Life and Hello Crimson House

Welp, it has officially been over 2 months since I last posted and A LOT had changed! So I figured no better time to jump back into the swing of things than with a Currently post all tied together with a 5 on Friday! If you follow along on IG then you know we are no longer traveling full-time; we are still in the RV for now while we figure out our next steps, but here is what life is looking like around these parts....

{STARTING} The next chapter in our journey! We actually arrived back in Florida a little over a month ago and it has been a whirlwind. I tried to jump right into things, thinking "just conquer the change head on and roll with", but I took a much longer break than planned, because I finally realized I needed time to just digest everything, reset and figure out what this new normal will look like. We haven't got it all figured out just yet, but isn't that the fun of it?! For someone who doesn't do well with change I have definitely brought a lot into our lives lately.
