My weekend view
Breathing the fresh sea air
with the warm sun shining down
and the sand in between my toes
Yeah, I could pretty much do this every day of the week.
I spent a couple days doing just that this weekend.
Sitting on the beach relaxing and taking in all that sunshine
sand and invigorating sea air
The ocean is a happy place for me. There is nothing quite as beautiful and inspiring
and living in California- we are lucky because the beach is just right.there.
The Santa Cruz area is one of my favorite places all around anyway-
the beach, the mountains, the eucalyptus and sequoias
so much nature all around- it is gorgeous.
We stayed in an old favorite resort in a room with a view
and we played on the beach
and spent some time with these grown up kids
In between relaxing and rejuvenating
I did a little bit of work
which wasn't really much like work
Since we made a quick stop at Trader Joes for some bottled water and trail mix
and I just happened to bump into a few peonies...
I had to do it
The Beach AND a bouquet of peonies?
Yep, pretty much amazing and the perfect setting for some styled photography
as well as a nice romantic setting for a bite to eat.
I mean, you can put towels in a beach bag any day of the week right?
But pale pink peonies in a black and white striped beach bag
at the beach?! Oh the inspiration.
I am in love.
As I was working
there was a guy sitting a few feet behind me playing guitar and singing in the softest voice
think Jack Johnson
It really was just such a perfect addition to the already incredible
ambiance all around.
The sounds of the ocean and birds
the beautiful sea air breeze blowing through my hair
the sand in between my toes
and the sun on my skin
a chunky beach bag full of peonies.
I'm in love.
More on our beach adventures and what else I was working
Hope your weekend has been going great!
Happy June 1st everyone!
