Vacation Inspiration: 14 Drool-Worthy Vacation Spots to Bookmark for a Rainy Day

Tomorrow, I’m headed to sunny Scottsdale with 3 dear friends (Ashley, Kelly, and Lexy) for a little fun in the sun. It’s just for a few day, but I can’t even tell you how excited I am to be spending time with three ladies I hardly ever get to see. Follow along on Instagram and Snapchat for an overload of vacation pics and snaps.

Now typically, if I’m headed out on vacation, I’m usually desperate for it…burnt out on work, feeling uninspired, etc, etc. But this time, I’m not burnt out at all. In fact, I’m feeling pretty good about where things are headed at the moment…. The house isn’t on fire, I’m pretty caught up on work, the fam is a-okay, and the weather here has been fine.

BUT all that said, I’m still really, really thrilled to be taking a break to recharge. This will be the first time in a long time that I don’t feel ‘vacation desperation’ before heading out. Which I think means that I’ll be starting this mini vacay off on the best foot possible.

And to kick things off before I head out, I’m sharing a handful of vacation inspiration (the beach vibes / pool variety), to get you through your Thursday! I’ll be back tomorrow with a mega Mother’s Day brunch and giveaway. So be sure to check back for that…
