Beach Time and a Monogram

Summer has begun for me. The following picture shows the beach I lounge about on as though I truly am Chief Mermaid of All the Seas. The sand really is this white and the color of the water is why this section of Florida is called the Emerald Coast.

Anyway, I happened upon a project idea at Let The Tide Pull Your Dreams Ashore blog that looked like fun but also has a rather practical purpose—well, to me it’s practical. Monogram your beach water jug.
After an unsuccessful search locally for a pink ½-gallon Igloo jug, I ordered one from Dick’s Sporting Goods. My green monogram was ordered from 2PreppyGirls. Both items arrived fairly quickly and the project itself took me a grand total of thirty seconds to finish.

Here is my monogrammed jug’s beach debut. The pink-and-green theme is rather perky—which is more than I can say of myself after putting on my swimsuit. Ah well, one of the best things about going to the beach is the feeling that all is well in the world and your troubles can just slip away with the tide.

You are so lucky, great beach and great weather. I need to wait until August for a landscape like this. Enjoy all of that!

You're SO funny! I'm not perky in a bathing suit either LOL. You've been so busy while I've been gone too -- I love all of your mermaid projects!

Picturing you lounging on that fabulous beach in the sunshine doesn't make me the slightest bit jealous June. Yeah right! I'm totally jealous.
It looks wonderful :0)

That really is cute! For some reason, my blog list program shot out an old blog post for you, so I went ahead and left a comment. I never know what games the Universe is playing or messages it might be sending, but I feel it is important to send loving, heartfelt wishes to my favorite mermaid. Drink lots of water and wear that swimsuit with pride. You are beautiful..inside and out :)

That beach looks very relaxing. It will be great to spend the whole day just idling around and enjoying the sunset there with a nice cold beer.
