Could I live here?

You bet!!
I often times think that if i lived in Florida I would tire of the hot humid weather. However, if I could live in Seaside, I would adjust! This town is insanely too cute. One of the first of its kind developmentally & architecturally. Unique homes-each one gorgeous or cute in its own way. Each home has a white picket fence with the name of the "cottage". Little brick streets where everyone rides their bike. Central lawn with amphitheatre that hosts concerts or movies on the lawn for children. And the shopping.......oh my!! Gotta love a little pink house!
This one is one of my faves......robins egg blue, deep pink door & yellow shutters!Seaside chapel

One evening we ran into a family with an awesome dog....looked like a huge version of our great dane mix. This is Rex-part dane & part mastiff, weighing in over 200 lbs!
Sweet dog!
These were taken in Fusion, a glorious shop filled with blown glass wonders!

Of course we rented pink bikes.
Are you crazy!
Inn by the Sea just opened by Vera Bradley...gorgeous!

I love how this home has a rusty vintage urn filled with shells just outside the front door. Ummm, would definitely have one of those outside my dream cottage!
Sugar cute is that!

Hi Paige. I always love the beach photo's of your family from Seaside. We are actually thinking of vacationing in Seaside this October. I'm wondering if you can help me with some vacation rental info for that area. Can you tell me some good places (cottages or homes) to try and rent for the area? We always go to the Sanibel area but are thinking of trying the pan handle this time around. Any help or tips you can give would be greatly appreciated. Please feel free to email me at
I look forward to hearing from you. Love your blog by the way. Blessings, Angie Seaman

My cousin and her family used to vacation in Seaside. I've never been, but have seen lots of yummy photos of it. It really is a fun place. I see you are putting your new camera to good use. Thanks for sharing!
