It is no secret that we love our vacations! One of the things we decided was important to us as a family was going out of the way to make special memories and experience new things. For the last several years we have made it a point to have at least one family vacation. Living in the midwest we find ourselves aching for a tropical getaway, so most of our trips have been to the beach, on a cruise, or some other warm and sunny climate. A born and raised Florida girl living in Missouri, I crave the beach!
Vacation memories are filled with the smell of sunscreen, the warmth of the sun, and the taste of tropical drinks. We are actually getting ready to head out to the beaches of Mexico next week! I can’t wait!
The good news is you don’t have to spend a lot of money to experience a little vacation in every day! As we gear up for vacation I’ve been looking for little ways we can bring that relaxing vacation feeling into our every day life. As it has started to get warm out the hubs and I (mostly him!) have been investing time and effort into creating a beautiful outdoor space to relax in. It may not be a tropical beach escape, but it is as close as we are going to get in land locked Missouri!
It’s just a start, but we are loving it so far! Our favorite thing to do is sit out back and relax after a long week. Along with a beautiful and relaxing area to sit in another way to bring a little vacation to the everyday is to enjoy a tropical drink while sitting in our personal backyard paradise. I was recently given the opportunity to try Palm Breeze, a sparkling alcohol spritz that comes in two tropical flavors, Red Ruby Citrus and Pineapple Mandarin Orange. Pineapple is a tropical vacation staple to me, so I picked up the Pineapple Mandarin Orange from my local grocery store.
Palm Breeze is a flavored Malt Beverage which means it is an alcoholic drink made with a malt base, kind of like beer. I brought it out on our back porch and sipped it as I enjoyed our new water feature, which I pretended was the ocean. After a week of laundry, cooking, cleaning and work it feels good to take a few minutes and enjoy a little #VacayinEveryday. The Pineapple Mandarin Orange was a sweet burst of tropical delight.
Palm Breeze has partnered with Blo Bar to create a mini getaway experience for you and your girlfriends. If you are in Dallas, Austin, DC, or San Diego check out the event pages to RSVP for an evening of drinks and fun!
How would you bring a little vacation to every day?
