upon arrival late friday night, i just had to go out to the dock & breathe in the sea air.

crazy weather tuesday (perfect timing for driving home!)



i could not have asked for a better few days at the beach. it was relaxing. it was filled with family. it was sunny & warm – like unseasonably warm, like the middle of summer warm. i read. i dangled my feet in water. i ate seafood i laughed. i slept. it was close to perfect. and i left feeling inspired and ready to tackle all of this amazing-ness surrounding me back at home. plus, i am really on board with autumn now. i had my last summer fling and now it’s time for boots, jeans, and all things pumpkin.

hope y’all had a good weekend too – i realize i’m a little late saying it, but hey… better late than never, right?

happy hump day! love & peace.
