One of my favorite things to do with Christian on the weekend is go to the beach. While California as a whole is very pet-friendly, a lot of the beaches only allow dogs at certain hours of day (which I totally understand, as my dog is a total wild woman). Newport allows dogs after 4:30pm, which means Bailey gets weekly beach walks during the summer and spring after work.
Dana Point and Newport Beach have my favorite Orange County beaches… but Queen B loves the ocean. Now that it’s darker earlier, she hasn’t been getting her weekly fix, so C and I took her for a joyride. Her excitement level is something else. I feel like she acts like we keep her locked in the basement and her beach visits are her only time for fresh air in months. It’s not embarrassing at all… false. It’s way embarrassing. BUT, I love this quote from Ryan Adams, “There is nothing wrong with loving the crap out of everything. Negative people find their walls. So never apologize for your enthusiasm. Never. Ever. Never.” So Bailey – you win, girlfriend!
I have to wear a swimsuit around Bailey because she loves to walk up to me and shake her salty water and sand all over me. So I layered some loose-fitting pants and a crocheted cardigan over this super fun Triangl bikini for a put-together beach look.

That sunset gets me every time. What’s your favorite time of day at the beach, lake or pool? I’d love to hear. Thanks always for reading! XO –
