Some Scenes From The Beach



































And we're back...reluctantly.

Don't get me wrong, I love you guys, I do. I love my house and my job... Love it all. But man I wish we were still at the beach. I'm not gonna lie.

We frolicked and basked and lazed. I read two full books and countless magazines cover-to-cover (big, meaty ones even like VanityFair and Vogue). I walked around barefoot and ate ice cream every day and cruised around on my bike and spent an embarrassing amount of time laying in a chair staring at the ocean.

The girlies were bold and funny and fierce. Audrey tromped confidently out into the sea and body surfed for hours. Millie swam and danced and hunted for shells and just generally charmed everyone she encountered.

It was a perfectly perfect wholly blissful week. Just exactly what we needed.  And now I'm clinging to that relaxed vacation afterglow for as long as humanly possible...

Looks and sounds like the perfect vacation. Eric and I need that so very bad - work has been crazy for both of us. Not to mention that baseball season is in full swing.

Cling on to those memories as long as you can as you transition back into work.

Miss you friend. xx

Looks like you had an utterly divine time. And what great pictures. I want to do nothing else, now, but go the beach and make my kids into mermaids (merman -ha)! Hope you are easing your way back into the day to day!
