The Beach House

Whenever we travel with the Bellican family (my side) for vacation, we usually end up renting a house since there are so many of us...there are eight adults and two children. It allows us to spend more quality time together, save money by cooking our own meals, and have a place for the kiddos to nap or rest.

This beach house in Watersound, Florida, is by far my favorite house we have stayed in. It was well-thought out in design, and much of the interior is Pottery Barn style. The inside is so open, and there are plenty of outdoor porches and seating areas. I had to post all my pictures so you can see it, but I wasn't able to get the bedrooms before we messed them all up! Maybe I can add some more pictures later (b/c I know my mom took some!). The bedrooms were just as lovely as the rest of the home!!!
