The One Where it was Sunny

Yes, we're going FRIENDS style today with the title.

Yesterday was the first day of my entire break that it was sunny.  I'm flying back today to Seattle, so I'm thrilled I got one day of blue skies! 
Those things on my face are called sunglasses. You wear them when the sun is out.   It was awesome.
My mom and I took advantage of the weather and went to our favorite beach town, Carmel.  Have you been there? 
If you haven't, don't worry...I'm going to show you some of the cutest, most beautiful homes the town has to offer! Almost all of the houses have this stunning view:

Look at those clear skies




One of my favorites:


This is another favorite:


Love this one, too! And it's for sale...Woohoo!!
Dontcha just love the shutters??


Which house is your favorite? Wouldn't you just love to live by the beach?


Love and Beach Houses,

  1. Michaela! Beautiful post! I was actually going to ask you about houses in California, and then you post pictures! So how much would say the house that you posted that is for sale run for? As you know I am thinking about moving there however I have read up a lot on the housing market and how it is nearly impossible for someone to own a nice home in California. I am just curious your opinion, etc.

  2. Hmmm... I'd go for the first house,
    the one with the wonderful beach color of blue and white.

    And I'd love to live by the beach...♥

  3. I think I' go for the last one, or the one previous to that one.
    But to be honest, any house on the beach would do!

  4. The photo of the pink flowers is gorgeous. That would look so pretty in a flower series!

    I've only been to Carmel once. Need to go back.

  5. I love the one right before the last one - so beautiful and gorgeous!

    I actually live on the beach right now and I love it. The only thing is I live in Boston so I can really enjoy the beach only 2 months out of the year but the views are spectacular all year around and I love taking walks on the beach on a cold stormy day as well.

  21. Oh man. My fav[s] are 1, 2 and 5 [sorry couldn't pick just one lol]. But seriously, those houses are so cute it makes me sick. It also kind of reminds me of an area in Pensacola [here in Florida]. There are tons of large/cute homes that overlook the sound.

  50. I'll take #1-6, please. :)

    So much character and architectural interest! Oh yeah...and they're on the beach. That's a plus.

    I could probably afford the pantry in one of them. Maybe a closet. Lol. Can't imagine the price tag on those beauties!
