Lifestyle blogger, Heather B. Armstrong, spent spring break on the beach of Newport, California playing in the surf with her two beautiful daughters and close friends. In search for the perfect place to stay for her and her girls, Armstrong wanted something close to the beach - she found a modern gem six houses from the sand.
"On Sunday we had all of the Howertons over for a beach date and a sunset barbecue. This house had a balcony patio and grill, and I loved shopping for food for the five days we were there so that we didn’t have to eat out for every meal. Also, not only were there enough boogie boards for all the big kids, there was a huge umbrella for me where I could watch them play in the sun from afar safe in the shade. Dressed in pants and a long-sleeved shirt. Wrapped in a snuggie. With a hood."
