Life's a Beach

One of my all time favorite things to do is sit on a beach with good company and good tunes, enjoy a few twisted teas (best beach drink ever) and soak up some rays. I don't know what it is, but there's something about the beach that makes me feel at ease. It's my happy place. I was fortunate to have ample amounts of beach time this summer and am still hoping to sneak in a few more solid "happy" days before the crisp air of fall creeps around the corner! But what's a beach day without some music?! I happen to think my beach playlist is perfection and I wanted to share a few of my favorites:
