pastel colored cottages with white picket fences
rosey colored sunkissed faces with sand in their toes
breezy cool evenings
days without a cloud in the sky
white sand that surely must glow
crystal clear water
finding little shells along the shore
grilled shrimp poboy on a crispy bagette
our condo being just above a wonderful flower shop
a jazz festival out on the lawn
hearing my girls laughter above the sound of the waves crashing
spending uninterupted time with my favorite 5 people
these are a few of my favorite things...
i'll go ahead & give my beach photo disclaimer....my next several entries will probably just be pictures from the trip . might not even have much to say....so if you wait until later this summer to visit, i'll understand--wink!!
something about capturing these wonderful days, capturing the moments where everyone seems so at ease & enjoying life, living in the now. i treasure these pictures that we take each year. i will look at them over & over again. i will edit, enlarge, make photo cards, scrapbook, journal, pick out a christmas card picture, frame them , & look at them again until my heart is content.
i know the gold hue in this first one maybe over processed but i LOVE how we captured the little sunbeams. my sweet emi has for years, not wanted me to take many shots of her. this year she was like a different girl.
i soaked it up. i took as many of her as i could.
these next 2 were just spontaneous silly moments ....no pose, no directions, just laughter.
these are for my UGA alum & bulldog lovin' little brother....
our favorite evening treat...snow cones, huge ones! the owner offered to let the girls climb in for a shot...too cute.
a seaside sunset....
this was my favorite new little cottage. the owners must have just painted it this year.....yummy buttery yellow , a periwinkle door, and my favorite detail.....bubble gum pink painted porch ceilings.
i really do think i could live here.....
one is away at cheerleading camp
one is at ballet camp
last night at 8pm it was still 90 degrees & i saw my first lightning bug......its definately summer time here!
