Today is the 1st of VACATION FRIDAYS!
We all know our minds are somewhere else on Fridays...whether you are at work, running errands, picking up the kids, etc...we are all thinking of being somewhere else and can't wait until we get that feeling of freedom that 5:00 pm on a Friday brings. It's similar to the feeling of kids getting out of school for the summer. I would give anything to hear the sound of the waves, have my sandy toes in the water, book in my hand and the sun on my face right now.
When i dream of vacations, 99% of the time I dream of beaches. Each Friday my blog will be dedicated to a new beach town I want to visit or one that I have visited and loved and want to share with you.
Join me for this Friday's vacation...and escape with me to PORT ARANSAS, TX!!
Some of you might be like...uhh? What is that place? Texas has nice beaches? That is not a place I would pick as a dream vacation...etc, etc...
Maybe this post can convince you that Texas DOES have wonderful beach towns! Port Aransas is perfect in so many ways. It is located 4 hours from Austin, so it's an easy escape for a long weekend. It is not very developed and has the wonderful small town feel. My family and I stayed in Port Aransas over Easter and rented a house in Cinnamon Shores. This community is amazing!

We stayed in a beautiful house that had plenty of room for all of us...me and my husband, my parents, my sister, my husband's parents, his two brothers and his youngest brother's girlfriend...yes, room for all of us! Our deck overlooked beautiful Colby lake and the cute fishing pier. At night, the fishing pier is covered in white lights.

Port Aransas doesn't have Caribbean blue/green beaches, but it has a wonderful family-feel that can be enjoyed by anyone!
I hope you enjoyed this Texas getaway and have a wonderful weekend!!
