Vacation Hangover: Kiawah Island, SC by Hannah Byrne

The most dreaded Monday of the year, the Monday after a vacation. (Wahhhhh!) But all good things have to come to an end, or at least that's what I'm telling myself.. Bressi beach week on Kiawah Island is one of my favorite all year. We celebrated Mother's Day with margaritas and Stephen & I celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary! We literally didn't leave the island all week, no regrets! 

The count down to 2018 Bressi Beach week begins now - 51 weeks until we're back! 

I wanted to share a few photos from our trip (lots of iPhone photos with crazy VSCO presets!) to get you in the summer spirit! Soon enough, your days will be filled with sunshine, sunscreen and good books. Get EXCITED!

First, our annual family photo shoot.. Including a horse head & mandolin

Have you ever seen this tweet?

Well, that's literally the Bressi family. Actually, it's mostly my mom. We joke that we exercise for the first 4 hours of the day and then drink for the rest. But it's not really a joke.. 

A few iPhone photos of the rest of our vacay ->

Can't believe it's already over! Missing it already

Wandering Barcelona, Spain by Hannah Byrne

When I think back to this trip I think about anticipation, adventure, fear, travel nightmares, glorious boredom coupled with insane busyness, walking (so. much. walking.), beautiful places, beautiful people, beautiful creativity. I remember the fear I had about navigating Barcelona's public transportation and fear that the shoots I had planned would all fall through.

It was such an incredible 10 days. I'm so, so grateful that I was able to visit this beautiful country in the hospitality of the sweetest friends (you're the best, Bea & Javi!!).

These photos are a collection of places I explored in and around Barcelona. Nothing in particular.. Mostly, this is a way for me to remember the quieter parts of my trip.

If you ever get the chance, I would definitely recommend visiting Castelldefels, Bunkers del CarmelBarcelona's Gothic QuarterTossa de Mar !! Wander around, don't just hit all the touristy spots. The real adventure is in the hidden corners of the city
